I assume this is in PA for pick up? Do you have any pictures?
I do collect this stuff, my latest is an original owner/hom brew Xmtr
I acquired. In the rack is a 700 watt 2/6 meter amp and a 1kw HF amp.
And I would be interested in your comments on the design it appears to
be to you.
Take a look at.

> looking receiver built in a National C-SRR black wrinkle cabinet
with 2 Crowe "airplane" dials. Untested. Tube lineup is 1-58 and 1-56.
> National 7180B doghouse power supply for the receiver. This is a
1929-vintage B-eliminator made by National radio. The first of the
"doghouse" power supplies. It's in very good or excellent looking
condition but untested. Tube line-up is 1-80.
> Homebrew #10 Hartley Transmitter. Built from plans in the 1931 ARRL
Handbook. Looks exactly like RX pictured in book. Using single #10
tube and 2 plug-in coils. Breadboard-style. This was built as a
nostalgia project using period components. It's in perfect working
condition. Tube line-up is 1-10.
> Homebrew power supply for the transmitter. This is a breadboard
supply using a 1930's Thordarson transformer and 2 large, square
1930's caps, one of which has split open. There is a socket for 1
4-pin rectifier. But it had no tube in it when I got it and I have
never run this supply. As-is. Needs cleaned up. Board used for
breadboard is unfinished and not great.
> Also included is a 1930's brown bakelite T/R switch. This is the
fancy, humpback-style knife-switch with the big, square knob.
> All 4 components--a complete station needing very little work to put
on the air: $429 plus shipping.
> Thanks for looking.
