These pictures are from a video taken by WA1FAF in 1988.
Top left and right - Views of the studio.
Bottom left - A Heathkit "TWOer" and Lafayette HA-410 sit on top
of the hombrew 10 meter transmitter. The hombrew 10 meter transmitter is a
pair of 6146s modulated by a pair of 6146s.
Bottom right - The stations monitor amplifier/receiver and a
Heathkit model HR-20 used as the back up receiver for HF.
The 75 meter AM 4-400 transmitter. This is a single 4-400
modulated by a pair of 572Bs. The 4-400 is driven by a modified Eico 720
which was given a new front panel and mounted in the bottom of the rack. The
audio section is made up of 12AX7/12AU7 input and tone control stages with a
pair of class A 6AQ5s driving the 572Bs. The audio driver transformer is from
an RCA 10 KW broadcast transmitter. The power supply and RCA 1 KW modulation
transformer are in the closet next to the transmitter.
The linear AM transmitter now mounted in a rack. The modulation
monitor is a CCA AMM-1D.
Left - The main HF station receiver was a Wells Gardner RAO-5. On
top of the RAO-5 was a Clegg FM-21 transceiver for 223.5 MHz FM and a Mirage
D-1010 70-cm amplifier used for ATV.
Right - The experimental LM1981 AM stereo receiver mounted behind
the 4-400 transmitter.
