Bill...Just scrap the Speech amp and drive it with the W2IHY with the
812 or use a $65 Beringger
on it. Let me tell you works great. I have a Viking II interstage
transformer that was taken out 
of my Viking II when I put in the 812 that you can have if it will work.
I do not know what the difference would be...

Subject: [AMRadio] Johnson Valiant Audio Driver Xfmr - Wake Up Call

In my quest for a replacement for the interstage audio driver
transformer (T4) for my 1957 Valiant I transmitter I got a "wake up
call" as to how expensive a new one from Peter Dahl can actually be. 

The quote was $189.66 plus $11.94 for freight and handling.  Delivery is
4-6 weeks! I had no idea that a transformer weighing less than one pound
could be that expensive.  
Certainly way out of my budget for sure. I love my Valiant but not THAT
much, hi.

I'm hoping that someone on this list has been in this situation before
and has discovered a cost-effective replacement that they would be
willing to share with me and the list membership. 
I'm getting kind of frustrated, I guess. Any help would be greatly

P.S.... I did contact Gary Brown, WZ1M, to see what he can do for me.
Got my fingers crossed. Thanks, Bill, w0ng
