The Drake TC-2 transmit converter provides full coverage of the 2 Meter band from 143.9 - 148 MHz in eight ranges. When used with any Drake exciter, no additional power supply is needed. (However the TC-2 may be powered by an AC-3 or AC-4 power supply when used with any other exciter). Oscillator injection may be obtained from the Drake SC-2 receiving converter. Metering is provided for both final amplifier plate current and relative power output. RF power is 180 watts input. Modes of operation are SSB, CW, AM, RTTY (as determined by the exciter). The rear panel features various I/O jacks including an N-type for the receiver and an SO-239 for the antenna.
The TC-2 can be used with the Drake TR-3, Drake TR-4C, Drake T-4X, Drake T-4XB, Drake R-4B, and the Drake TR-6.
