Product Description

This RL Drake RARE T-4 Reciter Transmit Add On for the R-4 & R-4A Receivers, Is in Excellent cosmetic Condition. 

This one is Serial Number 0100,  and has been stored unused for several decades, in a dry, controlled, non smoking environment, and part of a large Collection from someone who worked for years to find the cleanest examples of Vintage Radio Gear.

This particular Reciter is super clean inside and out. They are indeed Rare, especially in this beautiful condition. 

Both the cabinet and Face Plate are free from any bad scratches or marks.

I tested this unit on my bench and the Chassis mounted Capacitor appears to be open. It has been replaced at some point as it is not original, so this unit will need some attention and the capacitor replaced

 I did not test it any further.

As with most vintage gear, the old Electrolytic capacitors should be replaced before put into service.

 

In 1965, Drake introduced the T-4 "reciter" which was a transmitter add on for the R4 series receivers (it had no PTO of its own and used the PTO and other signals from the R-4 & R-4A receiver, to generate the transmit signal), making them a two piece "transceiver".  It is basically the same as the T-4X Transmitter without the PTO.

It saw limited sales and is a rare item on the used ham gear lists.

 

I am selling this item as is as described for the family of a Silent Key.
