We are searching for a backup transmitter for our AM station on 870 kHz. Our budget is very small, so we don’t expect a first class transmitter, but we need one in good condition. Tube type Ok, obviously, solid state would be preferred. Examples of workable transmitters for our needs: CCA 1000D, McMartin BA-1K, Harris MW1 or MW1A, Gates one, etc.
We can pick up the transmitter in our full sized van, but it will need to lay down in the back. Thank you!
