I now have both high band and a low band versions and after a call for help on these pages I have had a lot of information from two fellow Hams. Pip, VK3YME and Joe, VK7JG. I already had the high band one and Joe sent me a low band version that he has almost finished converting. Pip went to the trouble of scanning the complete manual to five PDF files so they could be emailed to me. Thanks folks for your efforts.
I have taken a number of these apart so I have spare parts including complete circuit boards if anyone needs them !
I found this one in a car wrecking yard in country South Australia. This place was a series of Sheep paddocks full of the remains of hundreds of mostly 1950's and 1960's cars. It was in an open shed on the property covered in "crap".
Does anyone have any information of this radio ?. I would like a circuit diagram but just the frequency multipliers for the Tx and Rx crystals would be a big help. It had no crystals fitted.
I have three of these and have taken three or four apart. I have plenty of spare parts in my junk box.
I worked on these many years ago when I was an apprentice at Philips Hendon, TCA was part of Philips and I worked in a special projects group that used these radios in a number of interesting communications systems.
I have three of these and have taken several more apart so I have plenty of spare parts for these also.
I have only one of these but have taken several apart, they were a good source of reusable coil formers and very nice trimmer capacitors and crystal filters.
This radio had been converted to 6 Metre operation and in the past belonged to a fellow with the call sign VKZNN. It looked to be complete, it even still has the 6 Metre transmit installed.
