Trans Europe Radio QSL

Thanks for the QSL Hans - and thanks to Chris for the heads up on the 15 mHz euro-pirate activity.  Check out Trans Europe's home-brew transmitter... a real beauty!

Any idea what that final tube is? I'm not familiar with that one.

Hi Zack, it's a QE 08/200

I've never seen one either, don't know how unique that 5-pin socket is...

Thanks! Looks like it's good for a couple hundred watts but probably hard to find, at least in the USA.

Yeah, I saw that. One for $125 and another for $165 on eBay. Their advantage is they are nice and compact. I could get a couple 572B's for a lot cheaper if I wanted to build something that had more room.
