Homebrew 1929 Xmtr.
Took me about a year to find the parts for this. It
runs a 45 tube or a 10. I have made up coils for 160, 80 and 40. It is fun to use
and puts out a distinctive signal. One sure learns all about hand capacitance using it.
This design came out of the 1929 handbook and was replicated as closely as possible. The
only thing I need is the correct power resistor across the filaments. It is a flat wire
wound unit center tapped total resistance of around 70 to 120 ohms. If you have one drop
me an email. Had a blast with it in the Dec 99 AWA contest. Ran it with the SW-3. Amazing
what one can do with a handful of parts and 2 watts to a G5RV. To see the companion
