I installed an RCA 20KW FM transmitter in 1976 that included a couple of
ceramic insulators that supported a 50 ohm /100 watt film resistor in  
the cavity. There were brass dipole elements on each end of the  

I looked on the schematic to see which wires connected to the resistor.....
I couldn't even find the resistor on the schematic.

There was a brief mention of the resistor and it's function in the  
instruction manual.
