This 1949 chassis was in a cabinet with a 12 or 16 inch CRT. The chassis contains TV, AM and FM radio circuitry. There was a separate power supply chassis. An interesting feature of this chassis is that the tuner has a position marked UHF. There are inductors that look like they would tune UHF frequencies. However, UHF channels were not authorized until 1952, though there was an experimental station on the air in Bridgeport, CT at the end of 1949.
