Disposal and later repurposing of the WCVB-TV ch-5 Larcan
analog transmitter including dozens of 1000 Watt 6-meter
PA's were donated to
The Minuteman Repeater Association for later use as a
fundraiser by selling the repurposed PA's to other hams.
The MMRA provided a proper Certificate Of Insurance to
WCVB-TV for the on-site work as well as signing off on a
company-required affidavit of proper disposal.
Almost all of the
volunteers were "RF people" in their day jobs and due to the
needed expertise, the event was by invitation only.
Please contact the
MMRA directly if you wish to indicate your interest in
obtaining one of these high-quality PA's which will be
available for for amateur radio use only.
