Thank you everyone for your good input and advice. I can see that not many if any used transmitters are good out there. Harlan Reinders is helping us out. Our PTek is probably not even worth donating with its history but we will use it for a backup, which we don't have right now. 

Thank you all for keeping the Gospel in the Air. We never know where it travels and into which hearts it heals.

A blessed 2018 to all of us!

Not everyone has the good fortune of getting a used transmitter from a station that a known reputable engineer (like, I don't know, maybe Kevin Kidd) has taking care of since it was new out of the box... and having put it in service some distance away (say, in Texas) and had it run flawlessly for the past 18 months...  oh, like, I don't know - maybe... ME. 

Thank you Kevin for your kind care of a certain 106.7 transmitter that now lives on 92.9.  Much appreciated every day.  Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Jack,

That is absolutely correct and in some very rare occasions when a station upgrades a license and doesn't have room for the too small but otherwise nice transmitter.  OR in some cases where you have personal knowledge of a TX to know that it is clean.   I installed quite a number of used tube transmitters with some problems but had pretty decent service.  Used solid state transmitters scare me to death.  It seems like almost every _used_ solid state TX that I have installed melted down in short order.  AND then found that regular unexplained failures were the reason it was surplussed in the first place.
