As much as I hate to do this, I am offering my RCA BTA1R1 broadcast transmitter for sale. Why? I don't have room for it in my new Arkansas ham shack. Originally the transmitter was the main transmitter at a Breckenridge TX AM station. After some years it was replaced with a solid state transmitter and it became the backup transmitter. Later it was totally retired when a new transmitter was purchased and the older solid state transmitter took over as the backup transmitter.

This transmitter is in good cosmetic condition and I have no reason to believe it doesn't work perfectly. I have had it for more than ten years and I have never attempted to put it on the air. For those of you that don't know, a BTA1R1 is a 1KW output AM transmitter with a pair of 4-400's modulated by another pair. It has a low power position and its power output can be adjusted by a motor driven potentiometer that adjusts the screen voltage to the finals. It comes with a manual although the manual is in Arkansas and the transmitter is in Texas.

I think it weighs about 1500 pounds with the iron installed. When we moved it (a friend of mine and I), the iron was out of it but the iron is back in it now. I think it weighs about 1100 pounds with the iron removed.

Pictures available to serious inquirers. The transmitter is located in Plano TX and can be viewed by appointment. I am asking $800.
