Thanks Todd.  Hopefully I will get back to rebuilding this transmitter soon.  Most of the transformers in this rig are
the CHT series, of course this one is the largest.  The audio/modulator section is primarily UTC stuff.  I have a more
recent T368 plate xfmr I plan to use for the modulators (pair of 849's) as a separate supply.
