  • Notes
  • The Meissner model 9-1090 is a VFO (variable frequency oscillator) with an RF amplifier that was typically used as an exciter for a larger transmitter.  RF output is "in excess of 6 watts". Output is link coupled.  The coils for the six ranges (amateur bands of 10, 11, 15, 20, 40, and 80 meters) are turret mounted with a six-position selector.  An eye tube serves as a tuning and keying indicator. Crystal control is an option. The tuning control is graduated from 0 to 500 and is designed to overlap the bands by 2% on either side.

    The tube count in the advertisements is 7 which includes two voltage regulators, VR105 and VR75 for oscillator and screen stability, not normally counted in RMorg.

    The unit was available as a 9-1090G (gray) or as 9-1090B  (black).
