This is a complete Drake station based on the TR-7 transceiver. It includes a well optionized TR-7 transceiver, matching PS-7 AC power supply, matching RV-7 remote VFO and a Drake Microphone. The individual items are listed below, but the station is being offered as a set.
Update: 4/24/2013: The station has been recently checked out on the air on our radio club net with good audio reports and good power output.
Drake TR7 Amateur Transceiver (Model 1337) manufactured mid-1979 - SN 3665. The TR7 is rated at 250 watts PEP or CW input. It includes the standard 2.3 KHz filter as well as optional filters listed below. Includes operation manual. Unit appears in good shape and was reported to be working when taken out of service about ten years ago.
TR7 accessories installed:
Also included is the optional TR7 Service/Schematic Manual (Model 385-0004) that covers TR7, DR7 and NB7, the original owners manuals for the TR-7, RV-7 and PS-7, a miscellaneous folder of notes and brochures for the Drake TR-7 line.
Drake AC Power Supply for TR7 (Model 1502) SN 3651. Operates from 90 to 132 VAC or 180 to 264 VAC 50/60 Hz power (120/240 VAC nominal). Output is 13.6 VDC with < 3 mV ripple@ 25 amperes. Unit is rated for 25 amps continuous @ 25°C without optional fan.
A Boxer fan (Model PW52107FL) is installed. This fan has the same mounting holes as the FA-7 and plugs in just like the FA-7 fan. No modification was made that I can see to the PS-7 to use this fan.
This appears to be a Drake 7077 microphone. It has the Drake name on it and is made by Astatic. Connector appears to need resoldering. Some finish rubbed off. No Drake part number is visible.
UPDATE: The microphone connector has been repaired and the push-to-talk contacts cleaned. The microphone was then tested on the air with good audio reports.
Atlas 210X Solid State HF Transceiver (160 M thru 15 M - Pre WARC) runs 100 W and includes the manual. This unit has been sitting on the shelf for the past 10 to 15 years. It was working at that time. May have had some modifications done on it - at least it came with a folder of mods out of various ham magazines.
