Produced in 1947 in response to demand for a bigger transmitter, with CW only. Previous Stancor transmitters were small, up to 60w, some had AM capability.
This one has a tube lineup of 6V6, 6L6, 811 final, plus 2 rectifiers. Puts out over 100w on 40 and 80, the only bands I have tried. I now have a 20m coil, will try soon.

I've used this particular setup several times, in the "Classic Radio Exchange" and for general QSO's, mostly on 40 meters. It always gets good signal reports.
The previous owner liked to paint things red
