I came across this: http://www.pastimeprojects.com
Scroll down to the bottom transmiter. Looks like a fun kit though a bit overpriced. -Bill-

$28 for a low power tube transmitter kit does not sound like such a bad deal at all.

Please tell me what you think my Dad is a tube fanatic and would love a good tube transmitter kit for Christmas or birthday.

The $28 tube TX runs a few milliwatts.

The 6V6 transmitter for $58 runs up to 10W. For that one you need a HV power supply and heater power. 7.040 MHz crystals are available at the website for $12.

Get one for me too.

Doesn't have to be for Christmas.

New Year's, Easter...any occasion will do. Smiley

I know this is an old thread but.....
I built oone of these back in the late 80's, from an article by Dave Ingram.
It worked great but got "mis-placed" along the years....
I think its time to build again!

I built a single tube transmitter from one of his articles as well! I think the CQ mag was from 88 or 89 I think. I built the "Classic Tri-tetter". The radio still works and sits on the shelf next to a hartley and a regen I built - all on 80 meters. Once in a while I'll bring them out and put them on the air.
