    The “Atch-T-Fortee” (Hallicrafters HT-40) transmitter is an able platform on which to experiment.

    So here are the trials, tribulations, and theory of one custom build.

    Very cool, Pheel - but could you perhaps consider posting the progress here in actual posts? Not all users can or will download an attachment to read.

    Just a thought - would make it easier for a lot of folks to read and follow....

    Hi Dave, I am not sure what you are asking?

    The build has been completed and tested and the text and schematics for each stage's build support each other.

    PDF's are easy to download and print out, thus allowing the reader to read and study the build.

    For many. But not for all.

    It was just a suggestion

    Pheel,

    Again, THANKS!

    Dave, it's a simple single "click" (using just about any browser) to view or download.

    If one has Adobe Acrobat Reader (on windows) or other PDF viewer on any Linux or even the MAC, that single click will open a window giving a choice to view in the installed browser (Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and others) or "save as" on the desktop, download or documents folder etc!

    The HT-40 improvements are really great because there are definately some minor shortcomings that when "fixed" make it a pretty nice transmitter!

    I made my first CW contact as a Novice (WN6IMM) in early 1971 on the HT-40 and then later in the year as WB6IMM on "Phone" (20m AM).

    I also have the SX140 receiver to go with it now (originally had an SX96 but always wanted the 140) Both are in what I would call collector condition, easily the best condx Hallicrafters gear I have! (My HT-33 Mark-I is a close second though!)

    Thanks again Pheel! thumb.gif
