No info here, Bill, but it does look like a real deal.  I found it on Craigslist 
and if close by and you really, really need more 'stuff' (God knows I 
don't!!!!), I would go take a look at it with an cleared out station wagon and 
$75 in your pocket. Should be easily $75 worth of parts in there - the rack 
alone is worth that.  You can tell a lot about it when you look at the meters 
(i.e. plate voltage, current, etc).

Subject: [Boatanchors] Details for Motorola base station, Model # B91RCB-3405B?

Hello All,

Season's Greetings from the Upper Midwest.

I came across a Motorola base station, B91RCB-3405B, for sale for what I think 
is a rather fair price.  (Either the price is incredibly low or it's a typo.)  
The ad states it is FM with 350 watts of power.  

My question for the group is whether or not anyone has information regarding the 
setup.  Are any documentation sets and/or schematics available online 
somewhere?  Does anyone have any experience with such a rig?

Full disclosure:  I am mainly interested in the power supply and related 
components.  I have no intention whatsoever in using it for transmission as I 
have no FM broadcast license and the WAF will be somewhere near 0.  Thankfully 
there is room in the garage for me to at least poke around inside.

If this is a classic piece of broadcast history or if I will be breaking any 
codes (written or unwritten) by pulling some parts, please let me know.  Don't 
want to create a stir, but I also do not want it dumped into a landfill.

Thank you in advance for your comments.

Best Regards,
