I have a Meissner 150-B transmitter for sale.  I will be bringing it to NEAR-Fest in Deerfield, NH on October 11-12, 2019.  It is mostly complete, but is missing the cabinet (& hardware), modulation transformer, 813 tube, and cables.  It has a mod installed to allow for a modern microphone, but I don't know if it's complete.  I am including pictures, and a link to a video that I made of the transmitter.

The Meissner 150-B is rated at 150 watts out on AM or CW from 160 thru 30 Meters.  It requires an external exciter (VFO).  It is a WW II era radio made by Signal Corps.  With the cabinet, it would weigh 300 lbs.  I have it separated into 4 units, plus the box of tubes, and knobs.

The three missing cables are the CA-703 Exciter Unit Power Cable, CA-704 Main Power Cable, and CA-702 72 OHM R.F. Line Cable.  These can be home brewed.

I purchased it from a ham here in Vermont who was moving to a smaller house.  I had already picked up some AM equipment at NEAR-Fest, but somehow this guy talked me into buying even more, after I contacted him on Craigslist.  He was a builder, and I am more of an appliance user, but learning.  I called the seller the other day, and discovered that he had passed away in April.

I'm hoping to sell it ahead of time here, and meet the buyer at NEAR-Fest.
Here is a video that I made of the transmitter: https://youtu.be/SZLI2vRCpMI

Sold the Meissner 150-B to Todd KA1KAQ for $50 less the two 572B tubes.
He needs it for parts, and I am happy that it found a good home.
We are meeting up at NEAR-Fest XXVI (26) on October 11-12, 2019.
