Product Description

This RL Drake RARE T-4B Reciter Transmit Add On for the R-4B Receivers, Is in Collector Quality Condition.

The T-4B is the rarest of the Drake Reciters, and very few were offered to the public.  There were some in Government services but not many were made.

This one is Serial Number 0391B 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. 

The cabinet Has the Later style splatter Paint finish, and is free from any bad scratches or marks.

The Front Panel is also very clean with no signs of wear.

There is also a Crystal Deck and selector on the front panel (lower right side) 

You will notice that unlike most transmitters this one also has a speaker built it for the R-4B receiver so you do not need a separate MS-4 Speaker cabinet!

I tested this unit on my bench and it powers up okay and I was able to load it up with well over 100 watts of output.

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.

Note: this Transmitter requires the Drake AC-4 Power Supply (Not included)  

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