What do you see from these two simple photo's
Well on the Left is an example of engineering the AR88D that saved lots of lives due to it's good design.
And under the bench I see a solid state sync pulse generator using about 72 "e" line semiconductors.
But also under the bench is a 70MHz solid state 100m/W Transceiver is use.
And on the Right a Ball and Biscuit Microphone on a stand plus a Valve UHF Tuner !....WOW...
But these things was the past tools and did the JOB...!
The GOOD OLD DAYS of 405
