An approach that might work is to look in Yellow pages under Electric Motors, 
Repairs and Parts (or similar section) and see if there is a motor repait shop 
anywhere near you.  I know someone that was in the motor repair business and 
that included rewinding the coils.  I will be seeing that person toward the end 
of the month and will ask some questions of him. 

It seems amp mfrs are using small mfrs of blowers and possibly get special runs 
which later become unobtainium.  If anyone has success getting a blower rebuilt 
please ask if they will accept these small jobs from others and then publish 
info.  I have a noisy blower in a TITAN-425 that may be needing repair/rebuild

The blower in the Titan II amp at PJ2T has died, and direct replacements are 
not available 
from any source. The blower is not marked for manufacturer, model, or CFM (or 

What have others used to substitute? I know that there have been some using 
squirrel cage 
blowers through dryer hose. What are the ratings of blowers used successfully? 

Out high ambient temperatures on Curacao (typically between 90 and 100 degF in 
the shack 
during contest operation) makes amplifier cooling pretty critical!
