Product Description

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

This one is Serial Number 0011 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.

The cabinet has some marks, and a feew extra small holes. The Face Plate has some light marks that is hard to see in the pictures.

I tested this unit on my bench and it powers up okay but a couple resistors (pictured) get hot and start to smoke as my variac voltage is increased so this unit will need some attention

Because it has the original electrolytic capacitors, 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.
