I'm a current Broadcast Engineer but I've never had my hands on a BC-1H. So I asked one of the other guys here who has had quite a lot and his main opinion was that it could use more cooling than the stock fan, and that neuralization was critical with this box. He also said 2% distortion is about the best you can expect, but that's a heck of a lot better than the later iterations like the MW (Muddy Water) series that ran about 6-8%.

Hello All,

Being an Ex-announcer, and Broadcast Engineer, I’ve always wanted a
commercial rig here at the home QTH for “proper” AM communication
On 160M. Well, I finally did it! Just bought a nice Gates BC-1H transmitter
for conversion to 1885, AM, 160M use!

I’m SO looking forward to getting it home, getting it fixed up, and On The

Anyone w/ Hints and Kinks about this Xmitter….. Get in touch!
