Does anyone have one of these hiding away in their collection of stuff??
It is a transmitter and converter (clever name, eh?) designed to work
with a car radio.  It was built in a small case about 4x5x8 and was (of
course) all tubes.  I think it had a 5763 PA and maybe a 6AQ5 mod.  It
was manufactured by Creative Electronics in Stamford, CT. in the 50's
and I worked for them one summer when I was in high school.    I came
across a schematic in my files the other day and thought that it would
be great fun to have one again!

I had a six meter version (paid for it out of my paycheck!) in my car
complete with the requisite "Halo" antenna on the rear bumper!  The
company also made a version of the Twin Noise Squelcher (TNS)to add on
to your car radio.  The most ambitious project was a KW amplifier with
4-400s in it. The company folded after a fairly short life.

If nothing else it would be interesting to find out if anyone else had
any experience with this curious little box.
