On my walk around Bondi last night I, as is usually the case, passed a number of discarded television sets. I know from experience that many of these sets are in perfect functioning order (I have two such adopted sets at home). The only problem is... who wants to lug it all the way home just to find
out that it in fact doesn't work and you've just inherited the burden of a source of semi-toxic waste? If only I had a portable TV tester comprising of a 12 volt DC handy vac battery and a 240/110v AC converter. Wouldn't last long I know but enough power to test say, 10 sets.

that must have been incredibly painful.
You might want some sort of booster aerial too.
||very very funny [neilp]. how I laughed...
That booster aerial might just come in handy.
||power converter boxes for a car cigarrette lighter socket are available at a number of electronics shops, though I don't think that they would power anything beyond, say, a 17-inch screen, and overloading the box may ruin it
