I have received numerous requests for a CD covering the R-4A and T-4X. Here is the "other" one, for the 13 tube (early) version of the R-4A! Hopefully people have not given up, or the requests were not all from the same person, but ...
This CD is for the 13 tube version of the R-4A (s/n 2000 - 4053). The T-4X was also in a state of flux, as I have found three distinct versions of the schematic, none dated or otherwise identified. Of course both R-4A schematics are included, plus all three (now four) T-4X schematics. There are 61 pages, 35 of which are in high resolution color, in the Service Manual. The CD for the 11 tube version of the R-4A (s/n 4054 - 6999) is also available. Of course both (now three) R-4A schematics are included, plus all three (now four) T-4X schematics. There are 58 pages, 32 of which are in high resolution color, in the Service Manual. Along with the Manual directory with quality scans of the C-4, L-4B, FS-4, MN-2000, W-4 and other original manuals, there are the usual batch of miscellaneous files with field changes, modifications, troubleshooting tips, etc. The CD for either version (13 or 11 tube) of the R-4A is $25 delivered. Each will also include the T-4X, and the Manual and Miscellaneous directories. A combined version, including BOTH R-4A versions plus all T-4X data, will be $45 delivered. All the previous CDs for the 2-B, 2-C/2-NT, B-Line, C-Line, TR-4 and TR-4C are still available too! -- 73, Garey - K4OAH Glen Allen, VA
