I'm also a lucky owner of this fabulous transmitter, the Johnson Viking 500. I still use it on 75 meter AM with either my Collins 75A-4 or a National NC-183D receiver. I have never had a problem with the Viking 500 in over 20 years including the 4-400A that I use in mine. The power supply/modulator at 120 pounds is a bit of a beast but tucked under the bench it does it's job well with superb audio. The chassis is laid out nicely and easy to work on. Johnson did a nice job on this transmitter even though they gave up after making about 500 of them. I guess just too expensive. If you want a Big Iron AM transmitter don't pass this one up but good luck finding one.
