    Default Restoration of Gates M-5078 Commercial HF AM/CW Transmitter

    Hello All,

    The link below is to an article about the Restoration of Gates M-5078 Commercial HF AM/CW Transmitter. This transmitter was built by Gates Radio in 1957. Gates was known primarily for making broadcast transmitters. During the 1950's they also produced several SW transmitters for various commercial markets. Many of the types of endeavors that needed this type of long-range communications was mining, forestry, oil exploration, news media, remote scientific exploration, and others. This radio operates on all the amateur HF bands as well.


    This article talks about the specifics of this radio, and also has tons of useful information which can be used to restore any boatanchor or vintage radio; including painting techniques, making new decals for parts, and more.

    This is the link:

    Can't edit the last original post? Interesting.

    The article is ongoing and is not yet finished (neither is the radio restoration) so bookmark it and check it out from time to time.
