I'm assuming you are talking about a BC-AA-191 which is a different critter than the later BC-191/BC-375. See here: https://aafradio.org/garajmahal/BC-AA-191.htm

The cost of shipping now is so high I would contact your local Ham club to find a Ham with tech skills.

I don't think he is looking for someone to repair his TX, rather anyone else 'working' (operating) one.

MOPA! There is a lot of controversy of how bad that family of radios is. Also very rear to find one with the 211 tubes being they are worth way more then the transmitter. Have been told that with careful tuning and light loading they donít chirp but not been my experience. They are a great example of pre war technology but cant stand up close to the ART-13 that replaced them. Although tens of thousands of BC-191 were produced you donít see them being used by Hams much after the war with almost everyone wanting the newer transmitters that replaced them. But if you want that Pearl Harbor fall of Batten experience then you want the 191, GO/TBW or RU receivers. The only pre war or early WW2 radio I like is my 1939 HRO, those old low stability high spurious boxes are hard to love.

Hi!

I do not have a BC-AA-191, however I have two BC-375-E transmitters, both operational and being used frequently.
Seeing four VT-4-C and one VT-25 glowing in the dark is "nice".
Unfortunately, tubes are VERY expensive.

Usually I work 80 m CW and AM, 40 and 30 m CW.
30 m, well... it drifts and chirps.

AJ1G checked into the Old Military Radio Net CW edition this week with a BC191. It was stable, strong and had its characteristic tone.  If an operator is looking for digital stability and a perfectly shaped note, rigs from Japan are available at reasonable prices.
If an operator is looking for that pre-war operating experience, a BC191 is an interesting route to take.  Itís always special to hear those rigs on the air.
