    My big Johnson

    After almost 25 years of service, my Johnson 500 transmitter is down for maintenance ,repairs, and a good cleaning. It's a two piece transmitter. The rf deck is about the size of a Valiant and weighs 58 lbs. The modulator/Power Supply weighs 125 lbs. The transmitter runs a 4-400 in the final, modulated by a pair of 811's It puts about 360 watts of carrier.

    Just looking at your old Johnson makes me wet....
    Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else

    If you don't have a purpose, create one.

    All over everywhere. It's what happens when someone throws their big ole Johnson on the table for everyone to admire. Kinda makes your grid dip, don't it?.
