As a result helping a friend clean out his parents
attic after his father passed away..we uncovered
a Heath TX-1 under a lot of stuff. I have not plugged
it in, but was wondering how I might find a home
for this piece and an approximate value. It has
probably not been used for 10 years +

Thanks

  It all depends on the condition of the rig. If you have one that cleans up well, and that does not have a bunch of holes drilled into it, you have something.

  Use a variac to bring the ac up very slowly if you intend to see if it works. Dont put it on the air without a good low pass filter....

  I would hold on to the little rig, just for the heck of it.....

  Best regards, Bruce

The Heath "Apache" TX-1 is one of the finest transmitters produced in its era.  Very likely that the high voltage capacitors in the plate power supply have dried up and gone south, but otherwise I'd be surprised if it doesn't still work fine.  I owned one from 1966 to 1970 or so (it was ten years old, then!) and I wish I still had it, for occasional AM work on 75 or 160m, where REAL AM still has a place (sort of) and sounds wonderful...

Hi,

For SSB operation you will need the companion HEATHKIT SB10 SSB adapter.

I have one with manual and connector.

73,

Rich
