    I got this from my WWII Vet Dad that worked at Collins radio. It seems he modified it but I dont know if its complete. Anything you can tell me about it would be appreciated.

    Appears to have originally been a BC-306 antenna tuning unit used with the BC-375 transmitter. Looks like the only original components remaining are the switch and the terminals.

    Ah, the joy of Home Brewed equipment with no schematic! :)

    If you want to know how it works, you need to get pencil and paper, draw in all the components and then trace all the wiring.

    If you still need help, post the diagram! Good luck! b.

    Appears to have one variable inductor and one variable capacitor to match a long wire, or random wire antenna. You have most of the parts for a nice T-Match for an unbalanced output, but you would need two variable caps.
