T368 for sale
For sale - T368E/URT, made by B & W, Serial Number 151170PP62, SR655
The T3 is in excellent shape. I purchase the T3 many years ago from a
local ham who got the rig from Fair Radio. It was used for a few years
then I went overseas for 4 years. I have recently returned and not active
anymore so cleaning out the cellar.

The only change to the T3 I can remember was to the speech section. I
forget what I did but it got good reports. What I did should be marked up
on the schematics. Typically whenever I made a change or replace any part
on any transmitter or receiver I marked up the schematic for that rig. The
change was minor and can be easily traced and backed.
The manual was purchased new from the government. The manual for T3's
is the same for all models as the variations between models is slight. I
was surprised that the manual had A, B and C but that's what you get for

The picture of the manual shows 5 folders which have extra manual
schematic copies and supplements. I made up extras of the schematics as I
like to go over them with a felt pen and markup circuits for easy
understanding. Although the transmitter is big and powerful it's basically
a beefed up Ranger. Even though I have the extra documentation if you just
use the main manual you'll probably never notice the changes described in
Essentially I got the rig many years ago. After a few months I put in
the speech amp mods which were minor. When I first got the T3 there was an
arcing problem as I mentioned on the phone. That was finally found to be a
carbon trace which was wiped away and solved the problem. I think the
carbon trace was caused by improper tuning or a non-matching antenna by the
After those initial things I never had to touch the rig so used it like
that for years and that's the condition it's in now. Years ago I put in new
4-400's so given ham service they should last through your lifetime.
