Home Brew Transmiter ,833A class C final withpush
pull pair of 833A's class AB2 as the modulators,
Speach amplifier and RF exciter or home brew as well. Otis has been a inspiration
to those who enjoy homebrew equipment and the high quality reproduction
of the AM mode of transmission. He is also a lot of fun to listen to. You
never know what kind of show or trick he is going to pull. That old pink
real to real recorder you see on the floor beside him has been used to
produce many sound effects and visiting ham operators that are not really
present during their own transmissions.

was the Radio and TV shop instuctor at San Jacinto High School, Houston,TX,
where many of us tried his patience and learned a lot of electronic theory
and work related applications. The 1955 station transmiter was single sideband
by the time I was in high school in 1962-65 but it was 100% homebrew using
phasing sideband elimination to develop the SSB output. Wayne is retired
in Trinty now and is very active on SSTV. I can't wait to go visit his
station now. Email [email protected]
are old pictires of me, WA5BXO from a high school field day that took place
about 1964. There were other stations present on the site, including the
high school club station K5TQU operated by the trustee Wayne, W5FJS. This
was not an ARRL field day operation but a high school club outing during
the school year. We were in competition with each other but you really
couldn't tell. The rig in the camper was a Federal something with a pair
of 813s in the final. Modulators were 1625s class B zero bias, RCAs recomended
configuration for 807s driving the screens direct and the grids through
a 20k resistor. The plate voltage was 1800 volts on the final and the modulator.
Yes I went thought a lot of 1625s but they were $0.25 or less for each,
and they would modulate the rig very well.
