Screenshot 01-1Restoration of a HUGE AM/CW transmitter from the 50’s – “This article describes my restoration effort of a Globe King 500. I estimate that I expended about 100 hours on this project. It took a lot of tenacity, it was at times tedious and frustrating, but overall it was a very rewarding as well as an educational endeavor. I have included many pictures of the project at different stages. I hope you find it interesting but more importantly, I hope you can learn from my mistakes and newly gained experience.” Link.
