I really like these tubes just for the sheer fact that they are so damn rare! For some reason Tungsram Warm Whites were very rare in Lithuania. In all of my previous schools, including my current tradeschool, had sheat-loads of tungsram Daylights and coolwhites in their basement lamp graveyards, but only one or two occasional rare pieces of warm white. In my current tradeschool they only had one case of 25 tubes that were Tungsram Warm Whites, all other ones were euther Cool Whites or Daylights. I don't know why that is. Probably because these tubes are horrible in a way that they produce the warm tone wia/ peach-orange hues, rather than in rich yellow-gold like modern Philips TL-Ds do. I don't like this peachy orange color, it makes everything look like it was lit by worn out oranged-out HPS. Nice tubes, but horrible peach tone. Nice additions to my collection!

November 1997. From the 80's in Hungary F 33 was the most common in production (unfortunately). Then followed by F 7, F 29, ... (others not mentioned).

LED-lighting is pseudoscience.
LED-lighting is only a generated demand.
LED-lighting came to life simply by business interest.

My dream is to someday to find a Tungsram T12 with full spectrum color at 5500k.. I don't know what the code would be like, maybe something at F55 or F54 idk, but I really want to find one but probably mission impossible in my country, because the assortment of lamps was very basic and primitive. You only had CW, D and occasional WW...

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
