A fine CW transmitter  Time owned: more than 12 months
The Drake 2NT is by itself a fine CW transmitter…when paired with its Drake companion receiver, the 2C, they become a great olde tyme CW novice delight. ‘Out of the box’, this transmitter covers 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter amateur bands at an input power of 100 watts, CW, crystal controlled (many vfo’s of the era could be used, such as the Heath HG-10 series). It also offers break-in CW or semi break-in CW or manual CW (with other receivers than the 2C); the delay control determines the time frame. Internally it has a built-in antenna-switching relay, which mutes the 2C, has a sidetone monitor (has an adjustable side tone gain control) and a frequency spotting function. Two types of crystal sockets are provided…pin spacing of .050 inch or .093 inch. Tuning could not be more fool-proof…turn the TUNE control for a dip then set the POWER SET control for desired output. Almost, but not quite total ‘idiot’ proof! Three tubes and some diodes and transistors….uses a commonly found 6HF5 final tube.

I receive many complements on its great sounding CW note. The 2NT is a fine example of engineering and I am proud to have it in my station. More details can be found at:
