   I  began  my  career  i  commercial  radio  in 1966 when I was in high
   school.   Our  transmitter  was a Gates BC1-T.  1KW day, 250 W nights.
   Back  then,  thought  those were some pretty big tubes until I went to
   work for a 50KW AM running a Continental 317-C.

   I  liked the Gates with the triangular "porthole" window in the front.
   Tnx for the memories.
