Vintage Rare Collins 30L-1 1 KW Ham Radio Linear
I slowly powered the linear up using my variac. Using my Icom IC-718 as the exciter, a 3 wire 40 meter beam for an antenna, I tuned the linear up on 7.200 mhz with 50 watts in CW mode. Output was just under 500 watts. A reasonable output for 50 watts in. She needs to be checked out thoroughly before being placed in service.RCA jacks need replacing (I have some listed) very slight bend in the case near the rear connectors, hard to see in the pictures. Power line retraining grommet missing. Some TLC cleaning needed but she looks good. There could be other issues with the unit that are yet to be discovered. This unit will require maintenance sooner or later.
