Test Pattern Indian

When television was young, stations often signed-off for the day after so many hours of programming. Sometimes stations broadcast variations of this test pattern, other times they showed TV snow (video noise.) When technical difficulties would sometime knock the signal off air, the local station would run test patterns like this too. Apparently these test patterns are actual copper based cards found in old TV station equipment and are quite collectible. Know that.
