Best vintage surplus transmitter  Time owned: more than 12 months
The venerable ART-13 is still very much around and in regular use. No modifications are required to get on 80, 40, and 20 meters AM and CW at about 120 watts output of high-level plate modulation. The rig requires 28v at 10 amps, 400v at 350ma, and 1250v at about 350ma. The unit will require up to 800pf of capacitance on 80 meters to load into a 50 ohm coax. Carbon or dynamic mic, but the amplified D-104 works best. I use two of these rigs every week. As with any vintage rig, condition is paramount! Prices range from $150 for a parts rig and up to about $800 for a pristine, on-the-air unit.
