Need Legacy Transceiver (Tube type) Trouble Shooting Help


Roger Calendine
 

I haven't used my Drake TR4 transceiver in a long while.
 Tried setting it up for some SSB contacts, but not able to get any significant RF output, just about 10 w rather than ~250w.  
Xmitr gain, load and plate tuning process isn't really giving much output, so can use some experienced help.
Or a repair person in the area you know about that I can contact.
Please send me an email or call if you have any ideas (other then donation to the museum or dumpster.)
Thanks,

I sent mine off to www.wb4hfn.com, he might answer questions you may have. Let me know if you want to get rid of it.
