Transmitter, Receiver and power supply - Drake T-4XC, R-4C and AC-4 power supply
Reduces as I need the space, and don’t use the T4XC or TR4C- I have refinished the case and replaced the LSB filter with the correct filter. It has blue LEDs as panel lamps. They don’t grab me but I have left them. It is in pretty good condition, and quite good cosmetically. It’s cover has been refinished with a black satin and spattered to look similar to the original finish - you will see it in the close-up photo of the repaint - it is pretty hard to get a good image of black spatter on black. It has what I think is the mic gain control mod on the front panel, nicely done. I have replaced the pot. It also has a pot instead of a switch on the rear to adjust the VOX. I have aligned it. The output valves are good. I replaced one with a new GE tube. The RCA tube is quite ok. All small signal tubes test well now and I replaced 6 with new tubes. I have little doubt that the previous owner had suffered a drop off in sensitivity. It seems quite good now. The Power supply is the classic AC-4 and I have replaced the HV electrolytics. The original MV electro can remains in use and tests ok. All cans left in place for cosmetic reasons.
Working well. I replaced the non working globes with white LED's. No other replacements necessary. Case is OK but has a few scratches - a thin coat of semi gloss acrylic will sort it out. Has extra crystals for 1.5 -2, 9.5-10, 11.5-12, 15-15.5, 27-27.5 MHz..
All controls work, effective noise blanker, AGC is working according to the control setting, excellent AM reception too. Works on all bands. Quite sensitive but the pre-amp seems to add about 6db but no noise to speak of. Nice radio..
The Ameco cascode amplifier if sold with the units will be $110. Not sold separately
