This is Bill with his home brew rig.   It uses a 5763 in the VFO and driver, and an 813 in the final PA.  It is modulated by a pair of 811A's which are driven by push-pull 6B4G's running class A.

The two black boxes on the shelf in this photograph constitute a transmitter called a Transmaster Model 600 by Lysco. The uniton the right is the RF section which uses an 807 in the final and runs about 40 watts input. The unit on the left is the matching modulator which uses a pair of 6L6's. Bill says that the Lysco was built around 1950 in New Jersey.
