Meissner model ex signal switcher.
They were fairly popular postwar for a few years. Does yours have the arm on the side for fine tuning? I always thought that was the craziest way to do it, but I guess it worked. I never operated one myself, but have seen several. That's the only one I have seen with that crazy long metal stick protruding from the right side although I guess you could do the same thing with a Signal Shifter.
I have found that the quality of the note will suffer if the contacts on the coil turret are not clean, and that the contact fingers hang up on the turret if you turn the turret the wrong direction. I also had a couple on which some beginner had taken the gear set apart and failed to pre-load the split gears when he put it back together, resulting in dial backlash and a miserable job of re-doing the assembly.
I used ohm balanced line although the book, as I recall, suggests 75 ohm balanced line, a 's item I didn't have any of. The upshot is, I think it won't work very well into a modern 50 Ohm unbalanced coax line.
This one was a kit version and one lead to the filament of the tube had never been connected, so evidently it had never worked! Posted: Jan Fri 27, am. That may be! My memory is fading fast, but I remember one of them had an arm that swung to zero the station you wanted to work. At least, you wound up with a fresh !

Meissner b - what the heck are all those TRANSFORMERS for??
October 28, , PM Welcome, Guest. Please login or register. Contributing Member Offline Posts: I checked out the Meissner b that's on Ebay see the for sale section for a link just to see what it is.
It looks like it must weigh pounds and puts out - what - maybe to watts with a single ?? Ain't that sumpth'n. Member Offline Posts: Definitely a BA table top rig.. Uncle Ray beats it I guess, at least 4 lbs. If that one on eBay were not so dang far away I might be tempted to get it, but the front name plates are missing and the dummies broke the fil. Fortunately I already have the exciter in nice shape.
All the Meissner gear was built to be put on a chain and used as a wrecking ball. That rig will sit there and do watts forever. There are three chassis inside that come out so it can be moved by pulling them out and moving them individually then the cabinet. Makes the job brutal as opposed to impossible without 3 guys. But, about the iron.
All Stancor but beyond that I don't know. Plate, fil, low voltage, modulation, filter chokes I almost bought the one that Dave W3NP now owns. We were both at Berryville that day and the guy that was selling it had it priced pretty reasonably.
I really wanted it but I was still recovering from a really nasty back injury. The thought and the pain of moving it around just changed my mind.
I saw it before he did. Yeah Frank, not the rig to have with a bad back, if you don't have one now, you will after lifting that beast.. If its like the Hallicrafters HT-9 I have There is a separate PS for the exciter, the modulator and the final add in the chokes interstage and mod iron, and you have a lot of metal in there Carl.
Carl "Okay, gang are you ready to play radio? Are you ready to shuffle off the mortal coil of mediocrity? I am if you are. Funny Tom HCI is mentioned in relation to this beastie.
Yup he does own one and yup he has a bad back Nice sounding rig. Hope someone gives this one a good home. I was running one on the air for years and recently passed it on to another rabid AMer. It is a great rig and the audio is excellent.
They have negative feedback in the audio section. The way I figured it the transformer salesman helped with the design! He recommended one of everything. They laid it out on a barn door and went from there. I have a small electric forklift in the ham shack so no problem with the weight. Quote from: k7yoo on October 14, , AM. Thats the wrong VFO. The B was prewar and used the earlier one with the plug in coils.
I have that VFO and use it often on 30M. Carl, Are you familiar with the Meissner model shown in the attached photo? A red back lit pointer appears when in operation. It is also a military unit I picked up and included all of the coils still sealed in envelopes. I also have the older model with the metal dial and a later model with the turret coil unit. Yes, the appropriate s.
Rodger, yours looks like the Deluxe model; I have one of those also but mine is not in as good shape as yours. I happen to have 4 of the EX models. Roger the one in your photo is the civilian version, maybe it was appropriated by the military. The one purchased under contract along with the B has a tag from the Signal Corps, Meissner Part , and a contract date. In addition the dial scale is factory calibrated, can you imagine a soldier trying to figure out the civilian one?
Okay which one of you guys got the B that was on eBay? I'm just curious that's all. Probably no one here. Someone with a lot of "spare change" lying around. Big money for low power and excessive weight!!! Not me, way too pricey plus Ive no room for it even if it could be crated for truck shipping. Maybe JN got it to go with his Trafficmaster Those sold items are civilian models, maybe purchased by the Army before the contract. But wrong color, no tags, coil drawer was only for the contract VFO, and included coils for down into the BCB and up to 18mc in later versions.
It makes a great little rig to rebroadcast streaming audio to the vintage radios scattered around here. Add a small modulator and pick a frequency in the BCB or elsewhere Carl. What made this one kind of desirable was that all the coils and the three mica caps seemed to be there, although getting substitutes and doing some home brew coil winding would be easy enough.
Carl thanks for clearing up the mystery about the paint color and why some are gray but with Army ID plates. I'll bet this one was repainted at some point since the color does not appear to match the originals I have seen. Administrator Member Offline Posts: You're dealing with a scarce piece of history here, especially when you consider its completeness, condition, and overall scarcity.
I think it went for the right price, kinda cheap for even a year ago. Think about it - where are you gonna get a Meissner B complete with new tubes and coils, for that kinda money? Would love to have one myself. Passed on an opportunity locally last year, been kicking myself since. Need to move more stuff out first. You shoulda snagged it, Rob. It's just what you need! Rob, There are probably several of them sitting in barns and basements here in the Midwest, hopefully some of them will make it to hamfests instead of the dumpster.
The Pierson KP receivers and Halli HT I picked up at Peoria a few years ago surfaced as part of a basement cleanup before everything went to the dump.
Two years ago a bunch of tube type audio gear was buried in a basement when the downtown area near the university was being remade as "uptown Normal". I was in a suit and walking with the university provost so I didn't think that jumping a construction barricade to rescue tube type gear would be seen as appropriate behavior. I hope you find a next hamfest season. Rodger WQ9E.
Hi Rodger, well I have enough to keep me busy so I can be patient. I expect that any around here are either being used or will come up for sale on the net, or on-line. Most of the heavy rigs don't get lugged to hamfests, the exception being Dayton. There have been a few choice rigs for sale way out west but dragging a trailer miles is too much for me.
I hope you find a HT if mine doesn't wind up at ur place. I wonder which is harder to find. Tossup I guess. Both of my HT-9's came out of barns. My son rescued the one in CA and had it truck shipped as part of his belongings to his military home of record and I drove to VT.
Both are in excellent shape with no rust or mouse damage. Those beasts are heavy enough along with the 32V2. I might sell a HT-9 for a HT On AMfone.
