  WRT-2 500 Watt US Navy Ship Transmitter #1640

WRT-2 500 Watt US Navy Ship Transmitter 

Here is a transmitter for a serious radio ham or collector / restorer who likes a challenge and wants a piece of US naval history. Perhaps you are restoring a radio room in a ship and need some units or the complete transmitter.

These transmitters were made by Cosmos Industries and some of them are from the famous USS Gurke D-783 which was a DD type destroyer before it was finally sunk in 1977 in naval exercises. See

Only a few hundred WRT-2's were ever manufactured by a few manufacturers for the US Navy and very few remain in existence in private collections and ship museums today, most were sunk in naval exercises or destroyed.

The AN/WRT-2 Transmitter was commonly used on board US Navy Ships in the 1960-70's in conjunction with R-390(*)/URR or R-1051 receivers. The AN/WRT-2 covers 2-30 MHz HF band. The output power is 500 watts in AM mode and almost 1000 Watts on side bands and CW. The WRT-2 was unique at that time as it had a unique frequency locking scheme. Modes of operation are AM/USB/LSB/ISB/FSK/RTTY. Works from 115/220/440 Volt 60 Hz AC 3 phase.

The transmitter cabinet is six feet tall and is made out of five pull-out units that tilt, swivel and luck into position for easy access and servicing.

The units in the transmitter are as follows, from Top:

AM-2121/WRT-2, Amplifier Radio Frequency.
O-581/WRT-2, Oscillator Radio Frequency.
C-2767/WRT-2, Control Electrical Frequency.
AM-2122/WRT-2, Amplifier Power Supply.
PP-2222/WRT, Power Supply.
