USS INDIANAPOLIS - CA-35  (memorial)

Several Shipboard Transmitters are displayed in the USS Indianapolis Radio room Exhibit.
One area contains three (3) , TBS; ART13 & associated Receiver & TDQ.
Some units received power from Dynamotor sets, others relied on the ships main power sources.
Exhibit volunteers are currently constructing AC power supplies that will enable us to return
the old Transmitters to full service using the similar design antennas..
