I am selling my 20V-3 Collins broadcast transmitter. It has been modified to 
transmit on 75M. It uses a pair or 4-400As in the final modulated with 
another pair. I removed the oscillator section including the crystals and 
use a Hallicrafters HA-5 VFO to drive the second RF stage. I have installed 
a one button PTT which switches the antenna to the transmitter, keys the VFO 
and mutes the receiver. The transmitter will run at 3 power levels; 375, 
750, 1100 watts output to the antenna. Power selection is achieved with a 
pair of Jennings RJ-1 vacuum relays.  All of the tubes test OK. The plate 
transformer is from Peter Dahl and it runs 3200VDC. I am asking $3000 for 
the transmitter FOB at my QTH here in Valrico FL. The transmitter is fully 
operational. I can send additional pics for those interested. The cosmetics 
are really great. I also will supply a manual, all mods, and schematic. 
Thanks for reading.
