Parts are used from each of these kits to complete the final NRI kit–the 80 meter transmitter. The NRI kit ID numbers are 4CC, 5CC, 6CC and 7CC. The original NRI manuals, in some cases with fold-out wiring diagrams and schematics, are included with each of these kits. Each manual has the detailed wiring instructions. Pic 1 shows all 4 kits in their original mailing boxes. Pix 2 shows kit 4CC. The parts probably were originally on a sheet of cardboard sealed with plastic. But the parts have been removed and the original cardboard with plastic is gone. But I think all the original 4CC parts are there–all the critical parts for the 80M transmitter are definitely there including the chassis, power transformer and so on. Pic 3 shows page 1 of the 4CC manual. Pic 4 shows the parts for kit 5CC. The meter has come loose of the plastic, but is still in its’ original packaging. The boxes at center holding the transformers are opened but the original parts are still in them. Pic 5 shows page 1 of the 5CC manual. Pic 6 shows the parts for kit 6CC, all still sealed in their original cardboard and plastic. Pic 7 shows page 1 of the 6CC manual. Pix 8, 9, 10 and 12 shows the parts for kit 7CC, all still sealed in their original cardboard and plastic. Pic 12 highlights the brand new blue chassis cover for the transmitter. Pic 11 shows page 1 of he 7CC manual, showing a picture of the completed 80 meter transmitter without the blue cover. So if you recall how NRI did things, one set of lessons and experiments built on the last. So for example, the chassis for the transmitter was introduced in kit 4CC with a group of experiments that led up to the final transmitter construction in kit 7CC. I think the entire transmitter kit is here, across the 4 original NRI kits. Since the parts have been dismounted from the cardboard on kit 4CC, it is hard to tell if all the original resistors and caps are here. If so, you may have to supply those. But most of the transmitter is in 7CC and all the 6CC and 7CC parts are still sealed. 5CC is sealed EXCEPT for the loose meter and open transformer boxes. I made certain that all the significant original parts for the 80 meter transmitter are here–chassis, power transformer, meter, tubes, the other transformers, coils, controls, mounting brackets, etc. Check my other auctions too.
