I have one too, but no paperwork left.  It was bought in 1954 from 
Burstein-Applebee out of Kansas City, Mo.  6V6 osc, 6L6 amp, seperate power 
supply w/80 rectifier tube.  Pi output circuit.  It is almost identical to 
the Philmore NT-200 Novice Transmitter Kit.  You can find the Philmore 
manual on BAMA.

The chassis were very close to being the same.  The Philmore used a 5Y3 
rectifier and used a #49 "tuning lamp".  The Eagle used a neon "tuning 
lamp".  The Eagle also used two dual variable caps in parallel where as the 
Philmore used two single 100pf variables.  The Eagle used a lot of surplus 
parts (caps and resistors).  They were both sold as kits.

Hi Gang,

I'm happy to join this club. I just picked up a Gross Eagle with two
coils. I'm interested in gathering more information. Anything
Gross actually.
