[AMPS] BC610... no 833's

Wed, 20 Sep 2000 11:25:01 -0500

The BC 610 was a 390 pound mobile transmitter using 250 TH final modulated
by a pair of 100 THs for 400 W. It was "mobile" because it  was part of an
army RTTY station mounted in the back of a duce-and- a- half. They towed a
10 KW generator trailer behind. My kinda station. (Actually it WAS my
station, more or less, years ago, including the generator. Model 15 Page
Printer,  14 typing reperforator , paper tape reader and all).

The ART-13 was airborne in the B-29 along with the BC 348 receiver. It used
a pair of 811's modulating an 813 and was rated as 100W. The Collins
Autotune made this radio a hAM favorite after the war. Monster PSU needed to
drive the motors. I used the ARC-3 VHF too, it was autotune.( Still have and
use a BC 348 P...interesting instruction manual, has a section on the proper
use of a parachute and life boat, as well as useful information on how to
combat in-flight fires!).

Happy Building, Geo>K0FF
