The Hammond 812 is what I have used on my Viking II...

The Primary is 125/500 or 150/600
The Secondary is 10K to 40K

The Freq response is 50Hz to 15 Khz
That is + or - .5db Max

They sound great on the air and I use a W2IHY 8 band EQ with a Heil

Little costly at about $70...

Robert W5APN is using the same on his Valiant II

Very Best 73's

Subject: [AMRadio] Johnson Valiant Audio Driver Xfmr Replacement

I'd like to ask the group for a little help in selecting the best
replacement for an interstage audio driver transformer in my Valiant
transmitter. Hammond Transformer makes two versions of replacement xfmrs
that should work according to several reflector postings I've found
posted over the years. Opinions seem to vary as to which one will work
the best. The specs are as follows:

Model  /  Audio Watts  /  pri impedance  /  pri dc resistance  /  sec
impedance  /  sec dc resistance  /  sec winding
124D             5               7k ohms c.t.         454 ohms
15.8k ohms  c.t.       681 ohms              C.T.
124E             5               15k ohms c.t.        728 ohms
33.8k / 135k  ohms    3,880 ohms           C.T.  

I can't find the specs anywhere for the original audio driver xfmr in my
Valiant and would really appreciate some advice as to which one to use. 
Thanks & 73, Bill, w0ng
