||VTR-150: 1966 Vintage portable deck black and
white VTR. One head, 60 rps, 1 track = 1 field, head to tape speed of 180
IPS, video bandwidth of 2 Mhz, audio bandwidth of 10 Khz, 7-1/2 IPS, 60
minutes with 7" reel / 1200 feet of 1/2" tape. Weight: 50 pounds. (Article
says 8" reels, but I doubt this. ~LabGuy) I am also calculating that the
scanner diameter is just under one inch (0.955"). I am finding this difficult
to believe, but not impossible based on the photo. Note the consipucous
absence of the "large" scanner of of the day. Too bad there is a cover,
probably to lower head to tape noise, over the tape path. More info and
photos needed about this one, please! A service manual would be priceless.
