Date: Thursday, March 29, 2012, 11:03 AMforgot to mention I need color - solid state is probably preferable, since it might be less likely to quit or be harmed by being moved around. Anything between 13-19" is fine.
I believe I used 19" back in the day. My stepfather had a business that manufactured components (coils and such) for Zenith and other electronics companies and he gave me a set that I think they used in engineering for testing prototypes.

- Bill,What model Sony is that? The 12" KV-1210 is the first Trinitron and is rare today. If I was coming I would bring my CVM-1211 monitor/receiver from 1972.I will be at the Early Television Foundation annual convention as it is the same weekend as VCF.Matt

For my VCF 5 Exhibit a few years ago of a Apple II with original
1969 Sony portable color TV ...
...I too had a lot of trouble finding one, more than anything else on
the table! Unfortunately the TV flips and pops every few minutes,
not suitable for a full day demo. Otherwise I'd offer to loan it to you.
- There are a lot if pics of the tv in vintagecomputer.net/apple/appleii/ Maybe you can determine from your experience ... there is no model plate or number. Somehow I determined it was a 1969 model Trinitron maybe by looking for component date codes.
