Unfortunately Bob, it lacks a modulator. Its pretty much a CW rig. It is 
nicely built though.

Some needs to go get this in Ohio before those machine-turned panels
overcome my better judgment.  I can't even guess how many hours were put
into them alone:


Finals are missing - with that style base whaddya think, maybe a pair of
211s?   The placard shows dial settings for 80 thru 10 meters, including
15, so that would date it after 1952.

Panels, matched meters, quality components - it's obvious whoever built
this transmitter was a master craftsman; it' certainly deserves to be
put back on the air.    Vade retro me, Satana!
