The amplifier decks are parts of an old ship transmitter. They are 19" wide. The 19" rack has been scrapped already, so the interconnections between the 3 racks are also missing.
It are 3 decks: Power supply with 3-phase transformer and smaller transformers. RF deck with 4CX1500B, blower, filament transformer and big RF relay. HF/IF unit with band switch, several HV capacitors ans coils.
Additional to this are 3 spare 4CX1500B's of which one looks new.
Asking price is 1500 euros. Pick up preferred. Or I can bring it if in 4 hour driving distance from JO11WL.
I was introduced to electronics when I was a young boy by my father who is an electronics hobbiest. My father built shortwave receivers and all other kind of electronics. I started listening to shortwave broadcast station when I was around 13. At that time we learned english at school so I could understand some of the foreign broadcasts.
In 1976 I became member of the highschool station PI1GOE. I spent a lot of time at the 80m band in the SSB DX window. I also learned to contest there. Still remember the WAE contest with the QTC's. One operator doing the talking, 2 operators doing the writing.
In 1983 I did the exam for my own license, first a no-code license as PE1JLS, 2 years later I passed the morse code test and I got a full license, PA3EOB. In 1989, when we got the option to change our callsigns, I changed it to PA5KT, which is an easy call for CW, but does not sound bad on SSB either. I rarely work SSB, most of the contacts are CW and RTTY.
