[Facebook comment by Dennis Woytek]  If I remember correctly the transmitter in the rack was the standby transmitter,

the original one used before the 1K arrived.

[Facebook comment by Paul Dean Baldridge]  I used to dry my wet socks on the back of the transmitter in late 1969!


[Facebook comment by Tim Abney]  That Bauer was good for 50 Watts. That was our main transmitter at KLIK on 1330 KHz.

"Some of the biggest fans of 'Combat' lived here, on the DMZ."
