Some neat stuff here, for instance, 1 kW transmitter that looks like a BC1J.

Very nice. I wish I could have seen some of that stuff in its day. Of course I would be 100 years old now. Some of the small transmitters used what looked like BC-610 plug in coils. I didn't know they were used anywhere outside of the family of 610's.

Do you or anyone else have any PDF's to bring forth?

Very nice, John.  I remember when I was in high school the local AM/FM station [WRAY] was running an old Gates on AM.  1 KW, daytime only.  My cousin DJ'd there, so got to see the stuff up close.  This was in the early 60's; graduated in 62.  Wish I could remember which model they had, but the database in the brain needs defragged really bad.  Those were the days you actually had to record meter readings every so many hours.  Take care.

Since 1958. There still is nothing like tubes to keep your coffee warm in the shack.
