KCBS Transmitter at General Electric Plant KCBS BT25A 50KW Transmitter


Some items from General Electric. First up is the manual for the KCBS AM 50KW BT-25-A Transmitter. The first photo above shows the KCBS transmitter at the GE plant being tested. The one on the right shows it on the air in Novato, California sometime in the 1950's. Schematics for the BT-25-A will be included soon.Sorry, but the schematics for the BF-2-A and BT-1-A transmitters are too faded and torn to be of use so they are not included.
