Product Description

This Late Serial number EF Johnson Viking Valiant AM/CW/SSB Transmitter, is in Excellent Condition with the original paint and finish. 

 This Transmitter was recently purchased from the original owner.

It has recently been used on the air and works great with no apparent problems or trouble. As with most vintage gear it may benefit with an alignment but it seems to be working great as it is.

 

 The AC Line cord has been replaced with a modern grounded cord, and the 866 Rectifiers have been upgraded to solid state replacements.

It is rare to find a Johnson Valiant in this beautiful condition !

This transmitter is being sold as is, as described.

It would be prudent to change the original Electrolytic capacitors with new ones before it is used on a regular basis. 

I do offer an Electrolytic Capacitor replacement kit and will provide one with this transmitter for my wholesale cost.

The 9 pin Shorting plug and manual reproduction will be provided.

 

I would prefer a pick up on this item but I will ship at the risk of the buyer for anything not covered by insurance.

I have been packing this type of heavy vintage gear for over 25 years and it will be professionally packed for safe shipment.
