This RL Drake B-Line, consists of the R-4B receiver, T-4XB transmitter, AC-4 power supply, & MS-4 speaker. All pieces are in Excellent Condition with no bad marks or scratches.
I have selected the best of dozens of these rigs to put this station together so it is all in exceptional condition.
The receiver has been tested on the air and it has excellent sensitivity and is fully functional.
The transmitter has also been tested on all bands and it puts out over 125 watts on 80 meters with excellent audio on both USB and LSB.
The MS-4 Speaker is also super clean and looks great.
The Cabinets have the original paint and finish and look great together. There is an anti theft number on the bottom of the R-4B other than that they are free from any bad marks or scratches.
The front face plates are free from any scratches or wear.
The AC-4 Power supply has been tested and the voltages were checked with no load and with a load and it is performing as it should.
I will include a full original cable set and a reproduction of each manual.
As with most vintage stations, it may benefit with an alignment and tube replacement but it appears to be working great as it is.
I am selling this beautiful station as is as described.
If you do want to upgrade the capacitors or if you want to upgrade the power supply, I do offer the Chassis mounted capacitors for the transmitter and receiver and I also have available, a complete AC-4 power supply upgrade kit with new capacitors and circuit boards with new diodes and resistors, all of which I will sell at my cost if you purchase this station.
Many prefer the B-Line over the C-Line because you do not have to buy expensive filters for each bandwidth as they are built in.
I am very proficient in packing vintage gear for 25 years so they will be packed for safe shipment.
