Remember, I'm Moonstruck for Class B Iron Dennis,
The RA-250 I owned was like 2 cabinets. A lot of shear metal in there. It could be air dropped from a B--52 and survive
That's a fact, Fred. I have an RA-250 here already. Enough steel there to make a '47 Chrysler Windsor.
I have an RA-1000 in storage in Portland, OR.
For decades it was the backup transmitter for 1470 in Sacramento. It was complete until tweakers stole the tubes and the boxes of small parts. All the iron and chassis are original and intact.
I would deliver it on the West Coast if someone would split the gas and trailer rental with me.
I want it to go to a good home, and not have to scrap it, as I'm losing the storage space.
Well, I do have a big van with a liftgate...
Man I love the meters on that thing. Such a lovely beast!
My wife and I have become adept at moving it in a U-Haul trailer with a ramp. The cabinet is sitting on ten 250-pound ball transfers. One person can move it on a smooth surface. We use a come-along to pull it into the trailer and a hand truck to move the iron. We've moved it four times in 15 years. Radio station transmitter sites are a good place to store transmitters.
Anyway, that's the easiest way to move it, although I have rented a "local truck" with a lift gate and moved it on its side.
I'm jealous of your marriage.
