why does Blonder-Tongue offer two new indoor boosters? (Dec, 1962)
Wow, that’s quite a name for an electronics company to be saddled with. Still here though, which is something you can’t say for most of the other companies in this issue.
Also, doesn’t that guy look like he could be John Stewart’s dad?
why does Blonder-Tongue offer two new indoor boosters?
Let’s talk straight-from-the-shoulder about indoor boosters. Transistor boosters provide higher gain and are more rugged, but they have one problem — overload (windshield wiper effect, loss of sync, etc.). If you use a transistor booster in an area with one or more strong TV or FM signals — you may be buying too much booster! On the other hand, tubed boosters perform very well in these areas — and what’s more, they cost less.
That’s why Blonder-Tongue has two new home indoor boosters — the transistor IT-4 Quadrabooster and the frame-grid tubed B-33 Amplicoupler. The B-33 costs less than the transistor IT-4, $19.95 as against $33.00. In most cases, the extra cost of the IT-4 is more than justified by its remarkable performance and long life. However, if the B-33 can do the job, we don’t want you to spend more than is necessary for the finest TV reception. Which one is best for you? Try one, or both. They can be hooked up in seconds at the set terminals. Try them on all channels. With either an IT-4 or a B-33, you’ll end up with the best TV reception possible.
