There is a Yahoo Group: ham-macguyver
They should have it in their files.

Fred , ZL2AMJ does have a web page / site.
http://www.qsl.net/zl2amj/aboutme/me.html

My first transmitter was a 6C5 crystal oscillator with an 807 final, running about 26 watt (DC input to the final) on CW.  The antenna was a half-wave doublet.  The crystal used was one "borrowed" from my father's collection, 3550 kHz (or kc/s as it was in those days).

Tucker Tin schematic here on my web site:

Sorry about the quality - it's from a very poor photocopy I have.

You might also be interested in the 3-tube "Imp" SSB transmitter that appeared in the May 1960 edition of QST magazine. The extra tube means you don't need the carbon mic, and it used a separate VXO so you had some frequency agility.

I also have the schematic for the Tucker Tin Mk2, but that used a number of semiconductors on several PCBs and is nothing like as simple.

From the #16 copy: The 2N2102 is expected initially to sell in the $ 12.00 range.

It is about .50 now and still available.

What is technology..

if anybody use old ARRL schematics from '40 years (WW2) and want to build some equipment based on this schematics this is posibile with NOS active parts (JAN tubes from ebay), but in the near future for 10 or maybe 20 years who will be able to acquire some special IC's from current pruduction?

So, enjoy of making things with tubes...

In the future, perhaps it will be possible to replicated old IC's with FPGA's.

Bit difficult for the linear ones.
