What the heck is this. Make offer, its yours.

Ya... I want it. Cheesy

will send email/PM...

fits nicely into a scheme to divert nasty HV from the ant to ground...

Looking for an original or a
copy with readable pictures.

The only copy I found so far
has black blobs for pix.

I need something readable to
decipher the turret board parts.

Thanks, Dick, w1KSZ

Thanksgiving wishes to all.  This is one of my favorite holidays since it tends to be relaxing.   

Was on 40 earlier and called a few CQ's, but no takers.

Now off to my daughters place for our Thanksgiving dinner.

I did manage to find a spare resistor at the local museum. It was the only one they had and of the 13 values that Ohmite made it happened to be the one my unit uses.

I'll have to get the unit cleaned up and hopefully all the resistors in it are good.

Yeah, the new one has some nice improvements. Not sure if I want to get one of those or the Airspy with its good dynamic range, but it does not have the frequency coverage range of the RSP, maybe have to get one of each!

Some new features include improved RF front-end, 14 bit ADC/resolution at sample rates below 6 Mbps, more preselector filters and a TCXO. And the sprayed the inside of the plastic case with conductive paint, just like SQQ did!!

Good review here.

Hopefully, discovery of this thread will save other Valiant owners from a heap of hassles. "We've done all the suffering for you" or somesuch grandiose claim.

Pilfering from your daughter, eh? I hope her guitar amp doesn't use 6146 tubes and she learns of the treasure trove of those in your Valiant!

The idea of running that kind of voltage in a microphone lead is unsettling as is holding a metal cased D-104 while connecting it to the transmitter.

Since we like talking to you more than talking about you, it might be wise to follow through on your idea of disconnecting the transmit lead and using the PTT switch on the chassis. Some ops added a low voltage relay and ran the relay voltage to the mic lead instead.

Seems like a good time to say Happy Thanksgiving!

It looks like either a heavy duty RF plate choke or a static discharge choke for AM broadcast antenna tuning units. The characteristic is that it has a high impedance across the b'cast band and can be placed between the tower feed and ground. It also works for amateur bands.

Similar inductor shown on top (properly right side) of pic below:
