Editorial Reviews

Collectors of antique radios have a variety of reference books and price guides available to them. Communication receivers have also been documented, although to a lesser degree. But the vast number of amateur radio transmitters and transceivers have not been well documented. Now Eugene Rippen's Tube Type Transmitter Guide provides a wealth of useful information on the subject of transmitters and transceivers as well as some ancillary equipment. The equipment descriptions are arranged in alphabetical order by the manufacturer's name. Most, but not all, of the equipment is illustrated. The descriptive material and illustrations are supplemented by four indices. These include a "MAKE then MODEL INDEX" that lists the make, model, year first produced, tube type used in the final stage and page number; a "MODEL then MAKE INDEX" that lists model, make, year and page; a "MODEL YEAR INDEX" that lists the year, make, model, finals and page; and a "TUBE TYPE INDEX" that lists the finals, make, model, year and page. These cross-references make locating a particular model and its associated information very easy. The book provides new collectors with a good introduction into the mysteries of older equipment. New collectors may be amazed at the variety of transmitting tubes that were used over the years. Some of the older high-power transmitters are monstrous. In addition to transmitters and transceivers, the book includes ancillary items such as linear amplifiers, converters, antenna matching units, modulators and VFOs. The book even describes a crystal oven. The Tube Type Transmitter Guide is a good reference book that collectors have been longing for, but it is also fun to leaf through -- either to reminisce or discover treasures from the past. This 8 1/2" x 11" softbound book contains approximately 150 pages and includes over 500 illustrations.
