I just aquired a Federal Telephone & Radio Corporation FT-102 transmitter, which was used, as the HF CW transmitter, in LSTs during WWII. The other designation is Mackay 167-BY. This unit was written up in the Nov 1994, Issue #67, Electric Radio magazine, by Dale Gagnon, KW1I. I have the original instruction book, has the serial number of the unit.

Unfortunately someone removed the nameplate from the front of the unit. I would very much appreciate a scanned, or digital photo, of the nameplate, so I can reproduce it.

I know there are a few of these units in operation, and would like to hear from those that have them. I plan to plate modulate this CW only transmitter, so would like to learn of any potential problems that others may have experienced doing the same.
