Viking Adventurer CW transmitter from approximately 1955. It uses a commonly available 807 amplifier tube driven by a 6AG7 crystal oscillator circuit. It has a built-in a.c. power supply which uses a 5U4G rectifier tube. The transmitter has a pi-network output which will tune antennae from 50 to 600 ohms ("Anything from a door knob to the bed springs," they used to say.) It is designed to operate as a crystal controlled transmitter, or, as explained in the manual, to take any of the commonly available VFO's of the period. Size approx. 7.5"h x 10.5"w x 8.25"d
