[Texas Towers 10 KW UHF power amplifier]

The Texas Towers 10 KW UHF power amplifier. The name on the Texas Tower transmitter is National-Ewen Knight. Ewen Knight built the first high power transmitters for Lincoln Lab. Transmitters began to compete for time with my interest in receivers, so I sold out my interest in transmitters to the National Radio Company in Waltham, MA. Credit: Photo courtesy of Doc Ewen.
