Wanted to share images of our Gates Transmitter in Storage. Its a winter project. I think it's a Gates BC-250-C1 , 1947

Probably been there since the 1 KW daytime class-C power increase in the 1960s. At least the mice haven't eaten all the insulation off the wires.

Those are fairly easy to work on, but some parts will be unobtanium. Good luck!

Probably the station's first transmitter, given it's 250 watts. His RCA with the glowing 4-400s was likely their Class-C upgrade.
