My thanks to all who responded to my appeal for specific manual pages
and information regarding the COLLINS KWT-6 transmitter (AN/URC-32).
I have only its linear amplifier module and matching antenna
coupler/wattmeter module. Since my TMC PAL linear amplifier is almost
identical to the KWT-6 linear in PA tubes, specifications, and power
requirements, I am hoping to use the TMC power supply to operate the
COLLINS linear using an altered KWM-2 transceiver as a low-power AM
exciter (K2VVL article: QST June 1963) or, possibly, a FLEX 1500
transceiver, which also can provide the nominal 1-Watt input
requirement of the linear.
I am intrigued by the new FLEX or the low power ELECRAFT K3 as AM or
SSB exciters with the KWT-6 linear--that would be a marriage of
outstanding technologies 50 years apart!!.
A special thanks to Nick, K4NYW, who provided pdf files of the
entire KWT-6 manual--687 pages. This might take a day or two to
