From hallicrafterssr2000 at k9axn.com Thu Oct 2 14:30:31 2014 From: hallicrafterssr2000 at k9axn.com (Jim Liles) Date: Thu, 2 Oct 2014 13:30:31 -0500 Subject: [Hallicrafters] SR-2000 and NCL-2000 band switch issues Message-ID: <2836D61CA413464FAD5597EA2AF38D09@LILESJLAPTOP> Disclaimer: I have never seen, owned, or worked on an NCL-2000. None the less, if you read this with an open mind, you will at least find it interesting and at best will provide a fix for the most troublesome failure in the NCL-2000. The band switch on the NCL-2000 was originally made by OAK using coin silver or spring hard sterling for contacts and rotor wipers, not silver plated copper. The new Chinese switches are silver plated copper with slotted contacts --- Beware. If you observe the original contacts they are solid not slotted surface. Further, they were rated at slightly over 12 amps and the configuration used a pair of contacts combined for 24 amps. The design by OAK assumed safe use at up to 150% of design criteria. The current carrying capacity of that switch is quite adequate for the 2KW transmitters that used them, specifically the NCL-2000 and SR-2000. The notion that the current carrying capacity of this switch is inadequate for these amps is misguided. The only way to exceed the switch limits is to run AM in high power mode. Of course doing so is a bit feeble minded and proves that survival is for the fittest. Do a bit of analysis. How many have failed when using the 80, 15, and 10 meter bands? Very few and that was likely operator error. The 40 and 20 meters bands comprise the majority. Why is that? The post mortem reveals the source of the malady. The front wafer is almost always the apparent starting point with the arcing propagating to the rear wafer. In that the front wafer carries less current than the rear and is usually the point of failure, doesn?t it suggest that current is not the culprit but voltage arcing is responsible? The SR-2000 uses the same front wafer design and the A level radio had the same frailty. The Hallicrafters engineers had the financial resources to fix the problem and all of the release level trials verified the cause, voltage arcing!! . I am certain that the National engineers became aware of the problem early but were in too much trouble financially to fix it. It is also very apparent that the service people knew that there was a problem but were oblivious of the cause. The first redesign by Hallicrafters engineers improved the failure rate dramatically and the second eliminated the problem, yes using the same switch. There you are, the switch is not the problem but the configuration is. The first redesign occurred in 1967 and the second 1971 four years later, about the same time that production ceased. It is inappropriate to fault the National designers because every power engineer at the time using the switch for the same purpose made the same error. The switch was appropriately designed to support the application --- just incorrectly configured. The standard National front wafer can be refitted using the same components to equal the first redesign by Hallicrafters and with some thought the second and final design by the Hallicrafters engineers. There is a lot more to this story and if I could put my hands on a functioning complete switch I can write what has to be done to replicate the first redesign and the second. If you have one and can temporarily part with it, send it out and I?ll write a yellow brick road paper. Then maybe the NCL-2000 switch legend can go to sleep. The SR-2000 has been reconciled long ago. I solicit questions and conversation but if you feel belligerent please don?t respond.

I could get a-hold of Violet anytime I wanted. Was right -there-... since 1949, anyway, along with her sisters: Blue Violet, Violet Red, Violet Blue (gone in 1990, sniff). Then in 1998? her other sister came along, Vivid Violet. Wow! A knockout! All of them slender, petite, and ready-to-go. They love to be held. They're all there for the taking, still. Just go buy a box of 120 Crayolas. [ See Wikipedia, 'list of Crayola crayon colors'. ] And don't forget, poison squirrels, Crayons were there long, long before the Kilngons showed up.

She attempted to say my granddaughter was a "high functioning autistic" child. Mt granddaughter is now a number of years older. When she and I, (her being about 8), had a breakfast discussion regarding the difference between fission and Fusion, with her grasping the fundamentals, I knew where she *really* was! I understood far better than the school ever conceived of, how her mental processes worked! She will be 11 this coming Thanksgiving week. She is being home schooled in Georgia, and is taking off FAR beyond her *former* classmates! Lord help the world when she finishes her University studies far younger than her contemporaries!

My first wife was a ham(SK), my second wife(SK) was first married to a ham(SK), and my third wife is KG4TUA. I swear I am not a glutton for punishment-3 wives. While my hobby requires periodic modest investments they are jointly reconsiled by my wife and me and often require a suitable compensation to the wife, new furniture or other household or personal necessity. Over the marriage life times, 16-22-16 years(54 total) it has been a satisfactory solution. At least I don't have to bring in a new acquisation after she is asleep. All three wives accompanied me to hamfests, other ham activities and parties and delighted in hosting ham parties. My first wife was hamfest co-chairman with me for 6 years. My second wife sold craft supplies at the hamfests while I had my sales tables. My third wife just enjoyed out selling me with the stuff on my table. Of course she expected half of what she sells- NOT always happens.

We just passed our 40th anniversary last month, my wife doesn't love the radios like I do, but she loves me and has said many time that "Ron wouldn't be Ron without his radios". My radios were part of my life long before I ever met her, I was late for our first date because the car was full of radios and I was dirty from digging around in a basement pulling out parts and such. I've got nearly well over 500 radios, plus many, many associated items, plus over 600 tubes in my tube collection on display. My main display room is a converted 2 car garage that holds the main radio and tube collection but there are also radios in the foyer, there's a GE grandfather clock in one corner of the livingroom, there's a Atwater Kent grandfather clock radio in one corner of the dining room, there are 4 radios in the den, even one in the kitchen. I have radios in the next to the biggest of the four bedrooms upstairs that's my hamshack office plus display space for my vintage amateur radio collection, my vintage CB radio collection, my Clough-Brengle test equipment collection.

Someone (now a silent key) put a very nice Quam 5 x 7 speaker into a nice metal box, painted the box black, and then added a Hallicrafters metal name plate to the bottom front of the speaker enclosure. It would appear that the Hallicrafters name plate was taken from some other piece of equipment. The black metal enclosure is 9 inches wide, 6 inches high, and 11 inches deep. It has feet in the front that give it a slight tilt. Honestly, I think the looks could be improved, but the speaker functions well, and of course a Quam speaker sounds good. It is terminated in an RCA phono plug. $35 Other Hallicrafters / Boatanchor related items: High Impedance, Vintage Military Headphones: I have two pairs of vintage military type headphones. Both are very similar, but not identical. The DC resistance measures about 1000 ohms, so these are high impedance headphones. They both have a nice cotton covered cord that has a "Y" about a foot from the headphones where it separates, with one set of wires going to each headphone. They have nice rubber pads on them, which appear to be in extremely good shape. One pair looks like new. Obviously they are not new, but this pair looks new. It says "Made by Wm J Murdock, Chelsea, MA" on each ear piece. The radio end of the cord has small spade lugs. $50 This pair has had some use, but are in very nice condition. They say "R-14, Made by Utah, Chicago, Signal Corps, US Army" on each ear piece. The radio end of the cord is terminated in a 1/4 inch mono plug. $35 Eico 751 AC power supply / Speaker: This power supply is used with tube type transceivers. It includes a speaker as well as the power supply in a very nice cabinet. It was designed to be used with the Eico 753 transceiver, but can be used with most any of the tube type rigs from the 1960's and 70's. The manual says it provides the following voltages: 750 V DC at 300 ma High Voltage 280 V DC at 170 ma Low Voltage -100 V DC at 5 ma for bias 12.6 V AC at 4 amps for filaments This supply comes from a silent key estate; I am sure it has not been used for years. I do not have a rig to test it, but would expect it to work fine, but the filter capacitors likely will need to be replaced, as is the case with any of the units of this vintage. With manual for $125. Bird 43 Watt Meter: The Bird 43 is an insertion type RF watt meter, designed to measure RF power and load match in 50 ohm coaxial transmission lines. It is intended for use with CW, AM, FM, and TV modulation. It measures power from 100 mw to 10KW, depending on the element used. The meter provides direct readings in watts with an expanded scale for easy reading. The scale is graduated for 25, 50, and 100 full scale. Elements are available in a variety of power, and frequency ranges. This particular meter is model 4300.21 manufactured in March 1957, so it is the older, well constructed model. It has "N" connectors, with the leather handle, which is in good shape. The meter works well. $165. Low Pass TVI Filters: A low pass TVI filter is added to the transmitter to reduce harmonic interference. All have SO-239 connectors and are 50 ohm filters. Johnson 250-20 This cylindrical low pass filter has a cut off frequency of 45 MHz and 75 db of attenuation, and is adjustable. Rated at 1000 Watts AM, or 5000 Watts PEP SSB. The fact that it is adjustable, means you can get rid of more TVI, and it is rated to handle higher power than most. A real win-win situation. $30 or with mounting bracket, $35. Drake TV-3300-LP This is a modern low pass filter has been optimized to have more attenuation in the 40 MHz region, where many TVs have their IF. According to the manual it is good for 1000 Watts "average", which would be about 2000 watts PEP, and has over 80 db attenuation at 41 MHz. SO-239 connectors on each end. This one looks close to new, and also has the single page "manual" with it. $30 Drake TV-1000-LP This is the filter that may also be used on the low end of six meters, as well as HF. It is good for 1000 W below 30 MHz, and about 200 W up to 52 MHz. $30 B & W 425 (same as FL-10/1500) Cuts off just above 10 meters, and handles 1500 Watts. Newer case style, $30. Older, heavier copper style case, painted gray. $35 Para Dynamics PDC 1089 This filter is rated at a full Kilowatt, up to 30 MHz. 5 x 6 x 2 inch black box, instead of the long enclosure. $25 Crystals for Ham Bands: All of the following crystals are in standard FT-243 holders. Frequencies are in KHz. 10 meters - Actual crystal is 7 MHz range, which multiplies times four to give 10 meter frequencies. 7325 (29.3), 7375 (29.5), 7395 (29.58), 7400 (29.6), 7404 (29.615), 7410 (29.64), Six meter crystals 8 MHz fundamental multiplies times six to give 6 meters. 8354 (50.124), 8375 (50.25), 8480 (50.88), 8410 (50.46), 8475 (50.85), 8500 (51.0), 8575 (51.45), 8600 (51.6), 8620 (51.72) Two meter crystals 8 MHz fundamental multiplies times 18 to give 2 meters. 8073 (145.314), 8075 (145.35), 8138.46 (146.49), 8152 (146.74), 8200 (147.60), All crystals are $8 each.

I need a better idea of what the original cloth, paint & insideslooked like. Did it have a backing board on it? Was the transformer on the speakeran electromagnet coil or a 600 ohm matching or were both used? I have half a dozen images from on-line blogs but nothing clear enough to see colorand detail. If anyone can send a picture or two to me I would appreciate it.

The longer the drive distance you have the cheaper this thing willbe :-). It needs a good engineer willing to take on the task. This is NOTsuitable for someone who wants to get their feet wet.

The console needs the bandswitch restrung and needs the relays be fixed or removed. I was planning on replacing the RF deck with the spare which was removed working from a Henry 2K console in Florida. I have manuals for both, tubes for both (3-00Z's), and some spare parts/fuses. I also have helpful notes on assembly/disassembly The amp works 80 to 10 including 12 and 17 and works on SSB, CW and AM linear. It is not as complicated as more modern amps to use old TX to drive but does need 100 watts out to drive to 1200 watts. I am asking $400 OBO and will trade for other gear. Must be picked up in Norcross Peachtree Corners about 20 miles NE of Atlanta.

My website changed URL to http://k9sth.net However, that information is not on the site. Connect the white wire directly to the B- point. This is where the radio side of the off/on switch goes. Add a fuse. Connect the black wire to the fuse. Connect the other side of the fuse to the off/on switch. Connect the "other" side of the switch to where the former 2-wire cord connects to pin-2 of the 35Z5 rectifier tube. Connect the green wire to the cabinet.
