1918 Connecticut Scr-65 Wireless Radio Transmitter * 1st Aircraft Transmitter For Sale

1918 Connecticut Scr-65 Wireless Radio Transmitter * 1st Aircraft Transmitter

If you collect antique radios or early cylinder phonographs, make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I've got some great items listed this week.. Here's a scarce, compact and beautifully built SCR-65 wireless radio spark transmitter manufactured ca. 1918 for the US Signal Corps by the Connecticut Telephone and Electric Co., best known for its Sodion line of radio products (introduced several years after this transmitter was made). SCR-65s are very hard to come by in any condition, but to find one this pristine is quite unusual, since almost all of them served time in battle during WWI. Small and light and powered by batteries, SCR-65s were used aboard aircraft for artillery spotting, relaying information to US ground troops who were picking up the transmissions with their BC-14a and SCR-54a receivers. And while the term "Marconi Era" is bandied about on recklessly these days, it should go without saying that this is a true Marconi Era wireless device, built and used during the teens, years before the advent of commercial broadcasting, when Marconi and his colleagues were still actively developing pioneering radio technologies. Condition of the apparatus is excellent throughout, with hardly any signs of wear evident despite its age and use. Everything is original, including the cabinet finish, cabinet tag, helix, binding post nuts and connecting wires. The instruction sheet inside the cabinet is also original, and its condition is excellent. The wires are still flexible, and they hook snugly onto the helix. The knurled hard-rubber tensioners are in excellent condition and working properly. The case latches are original and undamaged, as are the hinges. The condition of every component mounted on the interior chassis is almost like new (see photos). This is a super nice transmitter in all respects, one whose historic importance cannot be overstated.The transmitter measures approximately 7" x 8" x 5". Shipping weight will be approximately 12 lb. That's about it. Iwill package it carefully and properly, and Ican assure you thatit willshow upat your doorstepin the samefine condition in which it leaves mine. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my response, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly. Overseas customers may remit payment with Paypal only. sale participants with no response history should contact me before placing a offer. Thanks.
