Transmitter Type T1154M, a restoration. /cont

A close-up of the internals of the PA compartment.

It goes without saying that the T1154 made use of some weird connectors. I was very fortunate to get my hands on these three (right). I had purchased something on Ebay and just happened to mention to the seller that I was restoring a T1154 and was looking for the matching antenna connectors. As it was, he had three left. So I made him an offer which was accepted. I’m not sure what I would do if I got myself a J-Switch ... I would need another five! ... And they are not necessarily all the same size either ... Not to mention the ones which fit the external aerial ammeter.

I love the wave-wound inductors in the T1154. In the 50s and 60s when you could get your hands on one for a ‘tenner’, they were more often than not simply stripped down for the high quality inductors and variable capacitors.
