How to differentiate CE 100V and 200V

I had one of these!  They can be very nice when they are working,
and a pain when they get troublesome!  It was too heavy for me to
handle anymore, so I sold it!

You have a "later" 100V.  The 200V has the 6EJ7/6EH7's.  They did
use solid
state diodes in the later versions.  Less heat, less voltage

Also they dropped some of the "modes" on the 200V as I recall.
Either rig is a nice
transmitter if you can keep it going and wrestle the weight!
They produce some VERY
nice sounding AM 'phone too!  Beware the "newbies" might tell you
that you are "wide".  The phasing system audio quality is much
better than just about any
filter rig going when adjusted properly.
