FOR SALE - E.F. Johnson VALIANT TRANSMITTER
(Now Reduced)

Specifications:
CW - 275 Watts, AM 200 Watts

Bands: 160m through 10m

1.75 MHz to 2.0 MHz (160 m)
3.5 MHz to 4.0 MHz (80/75 m)

28.0 MHz to 29.7 MHz (10 m)

Antenna loads 50 to 600 ohms. Well-shielded for TVI and RFI suppression.
Silver plated tank coil. Break in keying and PTT system built-in.
VFO dial moves smoothly, and all tuning caps and iron are in good shape.
Transformers and tubes have been tested.

Dimensions: 21-1/8" wide, 17-3/8" deep and 11-5/8" high. Weight 83 
pounds.

Has not been recapped or restored, but everything is there, and in good 
condition
and it has a new 3-way AC power cord that has been installed for safety.
Crystal cover is missing. Microphone connector was changed to a standard 
1/4" style
plug instead of original 2-prong unshielded connector.
VFO, Band switch, loading switch, loading caps, meter etc. are all in good 
shape.

Comes with a copy of the manual. The rig comes with all of the screws - 
the four long cabinet screws, and the original rear apron screws - all in 
clean shape. A couple of rub spots near the VFO dial can be repainted 
easily.

This Valiant has no major issues, and it will make a great project and will
clean up very nicely. Just needs a little spit and shine - you could maybe 
repaint
the cabinet, but it is really not bad as-is. I just saw one of these going for
$1395.00 fully restored.

I have experience packing and shipping these heavier rigs safely.
Now reduced to $375.00 plus shipping.
