Angelo's ATR-4


On Monday I was talking to Angelo, W8ERN, on 17 meters.   He told me about an SSB transceiver that he had designed for ELMAC, the ATR-4.   Take a look at that beauty.   The amazing thing is the year in which Angelo created this rig:  1959!  Wow, talk about being ahead of its time!  Sadly, ELMAC decided not to produce it, and only a few prototypes exist.  It is 80-10 meters, SSB and CW featuring a crystal filter. It is a transistor-tube hybrid with a pair of 6146's in the final.  Nice job Angelo.

  1. That rig looks just so right ! Can't believe its 1959 vintage. They should reconsider their decission not to produce it.
