Götting TRX.

I have 2 Götting transceivers the HG70D and the HG70c they are 2M AM,FM,SSB transceivers.
This is a German brand old top class TRX's from 1972 for the D version.
The C version is from before 1972.

The D version was from my dad, he was the first owner, he bought this TRX smewhere 1972.
This version was fully transistorized with an BLY94 in the final
Also they used in some models an CTC-B12-28 as driver and an CTC-B40-28 as final.

In the C version they used 2 tubes in the final. QQe03/12 as driver and a QQE06/40 as final.
The power output is 40W for both models
both versions looks identically.

See below this page to see pictures from both transceivers

The price in those days where for the C version 2775 DM.
The D version 3075 DM.

Yaesu FT101ZD

My Yaesu FT101ZD is from 1982.

The transceiver is the MK3 version with the WARC bands.
The previous owner was my father who is also radio amateur.
He bought this transceiver new in 1982.
The transceiver has few transmit ours and is in mind condition.
I cleaned all potentiometers en the deck switch.
I replaced the "killer condensor" in the final.
it's the condensor between the anode of the driver 12BY7 tube and the first final tube 6146B (2 pieces).
The condensor is originaly an 1000pF 1KV
I replaced it with an 1000pF 3KV.
This part will fail in time and puts then 300V on the grid of the 6146B’s, who in turn pull all the current they can get,destroying the tubes and the power transformer.
if you are
not nearby, rendering the transceiver useless.
