UNIQUE TELEPLEX A 137 CONTINUOUS CODE SENDING MACHINE
BRASS DISK USED TO SEND MESSAGES -- UNLIKE TAPES
LOOKS LIKE INSTRUCTOGRAPH, BUT DIFFERENT
AN UNUSUAL FIND. THIS IS THE A 137 TELEPLEX CODE SENDING MACHINE. THE OPERATOR "LOADS" THE DOTS/DASHES/SPACES ON THE BRASS ROTATING WHEEL. AS IT PASSES OVER THE MECHANICAL SENSOR, THE DOT/DASH/SPACE IS SENT. IT IS MEANT FOR A CONTINUOUS OPERATION SITUATION.
NOT QUITE SURE WHERE THIS CAME FROM, BUT I DO RECALL AIRPORTS CONTINUOUSLY SEND THEIR THREE LETTER IDENTIFIER SO PILOTS CAN HONE IN ON THE SIGNAL/AIRPORT. THIS MAY HAVE BEEN USED YEARS AGO IN A SITUATION OF THIS NATURE. I SIMPLY DO NOT KNOW. IF ANYONE HAS AN IDEA, LET ME KNOW AND I'LL POST IT.
IT WORKS FINE. USES 110 VOLTS. I LOADED SOME OF THE "SLUGS" INTO THE BRASS DISK AND GOT IT TO SENT "TEST" AND A FEW OTHER CHARACTERS. INCLUDED ARE THREE "TUBES" OF METAL DOTS/DASHES/SPACES FOR INSERTION INTO THE BRASS DISK. YOU CAN SET UP WHATEVER TEXT YOU DESIRE. ALL INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN THE TOP OF THE LID.
THE CABINET IS SOUND. LOOKS GOOD. DOES HAVE A DRIP OF WHITE PAINT ON IT IN ONE SPOT. OTHER THAN THAT, IT'S CLEAN AND SOUND.
WILL SHIP USPS DOMESTIC AND GLOBAL SHIPPING CENTER FOR INTERNATIONAL.
