The following photos show the modified Westinghouse MW-1 transmitter that the guys used to "melt the snow off the Alps!" Click here for Cliff's text...Cliff has written me a long letter that tells the story page which explains how beautiful this old amp was. They drove it with a Collins KWS-1. The receiver was a 75A-4. Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of the operating position.
