3A5 2 tube Tranceiver

This is a little 80 meter tube Transceiver. I used two 3A5 tubes .It has a power out of 300 milliwatts .I use a 1.5 volt "D" battery for the heater and 5 nine volt batteries in series for the Receiver plate , and additional five 9 volt batteries added for the transmitter plate giving a total of 90 volts. The Receiver and Tranmmiter can both be operated from the 45 volt supply with reduced transmitter output . The transmitter KEY goes in series with the transmitter B+ line .
