A stunning dual tonearm 16" transcription disk turntable
Ted Bryan was a broadcast radio engineer retiring as WBT’s chief
engineer just a few years ago and still working part time up until his sudden
death at age 80.
As he approached retirement, he planed and built a workshop where he could increase his activities in vintage radio and audio electronics. He assembled a collection of very fine test equipment from the 1940’s up to the 1980’s – His machinist tool chests were a wonder to behold with all tools laid out in the drawers like surgical tools.
Ted had just completed the highest quality installation of a 1940’s vintage RCA 1 KW AM broadcast transmitter as the centerpiece of his shop but alas it never was put on the air in the ham bands; just working into a dummy load…
Another interesting project was completely stripping down a Philco 38-116 High Fidelity broadcast receiver to bare chassis and rewiring to look as new and working on the bench at the time of his death.
Volunteers spent over 150 hours sorting through literally one or two tons of parts that would be prime sources for anyone wanting to build vintage TX, RX or audio equipment.
Look carefully at the spread sheet for items to be available in the auction and then go on-line to see what these items have brought in recent times… You are likely to see items that will sell at our auction for considerably less.
While the transmitter mentioned above was definitely too big an item to go to auction, there are still many interesting items on offer for those that make it a point to be at the auction to be held on Thursday evening at the conference…
