Drake 2-NT Vintage Tube Ham Radio Transmitter (looks good, untested) SN 1732

This old transmitter is in good cosmetic condition. It’s not perfect as there are some scratches in the cabinet and the chassis is dusty, but overall we think it looks good for it’s age. From what we can tell, it’s unmodified and all original. You can see one of the large caps has started to leak under the chassis. Included in the sale is a photocopy of the user manual. This unit is believed to have not been used in many years, likely decades, and with this in mind we have made no attempt to power-on this unit or test in any way. Unless you are qualified and capable of working on this unit yourself, or are willing to pay a qualified individual to do the work for you, we suggest you revisit the idea of whether this is the right equipment for you. This item will be packaged using our InstaPak foam-in-bag system, ensuring the utmost protection! Bags filled with a chemical mixture expand around your item and harden to form a protective, yet forgiving, foam barrier. IMPORTANT : You will only receive what is photographed. If it is not shown in the photos, it is not included in the sale. This includes items such as original packaging, accessories, manuals, and so on. Speaking of manuals, it is strongly recommended that you thoroughly read it before attempting to operate the equipment. If a manual is not included in this sale, you should download one. We’re here to help! We will not declare a lower value on the item’s documentation.

Drake R-4C Vintage Tube Ham Radio Receiver (needs some work) SN 25413

This R-4C “works”, but needs some attention to get it in top-top shape. It receives a signal, but the pots/switches are extremely scratchy and need to be cleaned with contact cleaner. The chassis is very dirty and there’s a good amount of dust inside. The faceplate looks good, however there’s a good-sized dent on the back (see photos). This will make a great restoration piece. Also, please note that this receiver originally had the noise-blanker installed. This has been removed for another project, but you’ll need to make up a jumper for the socket, else the receiver won’t work at all.

This is a nice amplifier. It has some scratches on the cabinet but looks good overall, particularly the faceplate with really looks great. Also included in the sale is a reproduction of the manual. With a line voltage of 230VAC, the plate voltage sat at 1850VDC in CW position. With 45 watts keyed-down on 40 meters we measured 500 watts out, which is about right as the manual calls for 1000W PEP and we can assume 50-60% efficiency. The tubes are getting extremely hot (orange in color) when we put the amp into high-voltage position. The L-4B was originally designed to only work with Drake equipment. This one has since been modified to work with other transceivers, and we used an IC-706MKIIG when testing rather than Drake equipment. Perhaps this won’t happen when using Drake gear? Bias current may need to be adjusted. There may be something else going on that we aren’t aware of. This item will be packaged using our InstaPak foam-in-bag system, ensuring the utmost protection!

This transceiver is in fantastic physical condition. The faceplate looks amazing, and the cabinet does as well with the exception of one spot towards the rear (see photo). This appears to be some sort of adhesive residue and may be able to be cleaned up. It includes a Shure microphone, manual (pretty beat up), and even the original receipts! The radio was acquired from a gentleman downsizing his station. The radio works, but it’s putting out low power (approximately 80 watts). Some new tubes may very well solve the problem, but it’s not impossible that there may be something else going on.

This Drake T-4B is in decent cosmetic condition. The faceplate looks good, but the cabinet looks like it has been repainted at some point as there is a strange texture to it, particularly towards the front. The copper chassis has some corrosion, but if you know anything about Drake equipment you’ll know that this is very common. All controls turn smoothly. This was part of a radio collection we recently acquired. It became clear to him that this would never happen, and as a result he decided to sell most of his collection to us. We’re passing it along exactly as we acquired it, untested and as-is. We have no idea as to when this piece was last used, and there is a good chance that it will need new tubes, capacitors, alignment, etc. We will guarantee the transformers, but that’s as far as we can go.
