Updates on Ann KE5TEZ

Bryce (KE5KFD)
 

Sorry for being slow on updates about my wife Ann. As Lee stated.. She is home and recovering... The surgery lasted from about 0953 to 1630 hours. . So Aug 1st wss a long day... Tissue removed is believed to be tumorous like, but have not had confirmation from pathology yet.

We are not out of the woods as they could not get it all due to how deep it was in the brain structure.  We go back on 8/14 to have sutures removed and meet with her Nuerooncologist to determine the next course of action.

Thanks for the concerns and prayers.

73's
Bryce, KE5KFD

Her surgery went well. She's back home recovering now. The stitches on the right side of her head, look like stitches on a baseball.

If you are on Facebook, that's where all her updates have been getting posted.

WLW's 500,000 Watt Transmitter

Neat history of this station. Nice video tour of the station transmitter
site.

*Published on Jul 19, 2013 *
While In Dayton Oh at Hamvention 2013 I attended a tour of the WLW AM
broadcast transmitter facility located in Mason Ohio. WLW has kept a major
piece of broadcasting history alive by keeping much of the old high power
transmitter intact.

Back in 1932 WLW increased their power from 50,000 watts to 500,000 watts.
They were the only AM broadcasting station in America ever to operate at
500,000 watts. Much of the old transmitter still exists. It is really a
high power amplifier with a high level modulator (360,000 watts). The
amplifier was driven from their existing 50,000 watt Western Electric
transmitter. The system used 20 100,000 watts tubes ($1,600 each in 1932)
that required water cooling that used a cooling pond located outside the
station. Tons, and tons, of hardware was required to achieve the 10 dB gain.

Before the 500 KW went on the air, WLW installed a Blaw Knox vertical
radiator, or as we say today a vertical antenna. Back in those days a
horizontal wire flat top antenna supported by two towers was common. Photos
in the video show the impressive antenna farm at WLW.

The engineering was state of the art pushing the 1930s technology to
achieve 500,000 watts. Operating the transmitter required a team of many
engineers to bring it to life and control it while it was on the air. A
simple ON-OFF switch did not exist!

Enjoy the tour of the facility and the history of this high power station.
Thanks to Jay, Geoff, and Ted of WLW for hosting the tour.

I will soon post another video the covers the collection of 50,000 watt
transmitters that are also in the same building.

WWV and WWVB visit

Tom O'Brien
 

I was fortunate to visit the NIST time and frequency stations WWV and WWVB last Friday in Fort Collins, Colorado.
I took several pictures, some of which are good, and a bit of video.
At some future club meeting, I'll give a talk about the experience.
(This apparently is the first time in 30 years that public tours have been given).

Sincerely,

Thanks. No inquiries yet. RF deck looks better without the oddball parts
for sure. Looks like the modifier added a XTAL/VFO switch to the front like
the later GK-500s.

Importance: High

I picked up the following transmitter locally from a Craigslist ad thinking
it was a GK cabinet, since I needed a rear door. (Note to self, measure
twice, buy once.)

Here's what I know:

Original owner/user was W5NAV. I have an old picture of him and the
transmitter.

RF Deck - Modified Globe King 500, no suffix

Two variable capacitors removed and replaced with vacuum
variables

Bandswitch removed

Tank circuit coils removed

B&W bandswitch and coil added (plastic coil spacing strips
gone)

Has original square meters and RF shield

I removed the B&W bandswitch and coil and associated
hardware

I removed the vacuum variables and associated hardware and
installed the original variables

I plugged three holes in the panel and numerous ones in
chassis and vertical chassis

4-400 in final plus other tubes

Possible other changes

Modulator Deck

Home brew and very heavy duty

RCA modulation transformer (p/n 901769-501)

500w

Primary (5,500 ohm at 1.14KVA)

Secondary (5,500 ohm at 0.198 amps)

Two GE filament transformers (p/n unknown)

Input (115v)

Output (5.7v at 21.8 amp or 5.5v at 21.0 amp
or 5.3v at 20.2 amp)

Two 304TL tubes

Round panel meter

Other circuits

Power Supply Deck

Home brew and extra heavy duty

Electro Engineering Works plate transformer (p/n E-5707)

Input (115 or 230v)

Output (7,200 VCT, DC 430 MA/CCS 650
MA/ICAS)

Two large oil filled capacitors

Large choke

Two 872A rectifier tubes

Round panel meter

Other circuits

Cabinet with rear door (not an original GK cabinet)

It has been stored inside for some time and is dirty and dusty. All is
untested. HEAVY! $300 picked up in San Antonio. Pictures are available.
