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.
