OTA Antenna Website

  1. I came across an interesting site that has OTA TV antennas, SW antennas, and interesting vintage photos of antennas, radios, etc. A nice mix of the retro and modern. They also sell TV antennas. If you Google Godar USA you'll find their site. Their shortwave antenna looks interesting.
  3. I think I have seen this site once before. A very basic website, but you get the impression it's a real engineer that runs the company, not a bunch of marketing folks. I also think it's quaint that they sell VCRs.

  4. cool
  5. I think those dates for BetaMax production are way off. Sony stuck with the format longer than that.
  6. I remember Betamax being touted as superior to other VHS formats. Kind of miss going to the local video shop for tapes. We had a place called Video Jones in Stroudsburg, PA that had videos for rent. Placed smelled of popcorn because they'd pop it for customers. Anyone remember their favorite video store?

  7. Advocates of a losing format always insist it was better.
  8. Teens that work at McDonald's couldn't belive what a VCR was it was so funny, then they call a N.E.S video game a NES.
  9. Beta unquestionably had better PQ and less stress on the tape.

    I think VHS won because it had longer time, enough for a football game (who'd want to watch it later?); and porn.
  10. When the Porn industry settled on VHS, it was the death knell for BetaMax.
