60 watts on AM, and 180 watts on CW. The Modell 011B
includesautomaticgain control (AGC),automatic levelcontrol (ALC), and grid block keying.
The internal AC power supply permits fIXed station or portable operation wherever 117 volts, 50-60 Hertz is available.
Export models for 208-220-240volts are availableon special order.
For 12-14volts DC operation in mobile,marine or portable
applications,a DC converterunit, model14A is available. It
attachesto the back of the 1011B in placeof the AC power
cord connector. Its dimensionsare only I ~ x 3 x 4 in.
The Model 1011 B generates a single sideband signal by
means of a crystal lattice filter, and the transceive operation
automatically tunes the transmitter to the received frequency. Provisions are included in the transceiver for oper.ation on either upper or lower sideband.

GENERAL
The installation of the Siltronix 1011 B is not at all difficult,
and it involves only the placement of the transceiver in its
operational area (fixed or mobile); connection of power
(either 117 volts AC, or 12 volts DC); and the connection
of an antenna. The following paragraphs are therefore
devoted to the installation requirements involving micro.
phones, fIXed and mobile operation, and recommended
antenna types. Before actual installation, be sure to check
for possible shipment damage. Remove the cabinet (three
screws on each side), and check to make sure that all tubes
are fIrmly in place. Remove packing from around the P.A.
tube.
-_.
MOBILE INSTALLATION
DC CONVERTER, MODEL 14A
For 12-14volt DC operation in mobile installations,it will
be.necessaryto use the 14A converter,which plugs directly
into the back of the IO11B in place of the AC powercord.
MOBILE ANTENNAS
FIXED INSTALLATION
Wcate the 1011B in an area which is well ventilated and
which providescomplete operational freedomof the front
panelcontrois. Connectthe AC power cord to the 12 pin
Jones connector on the rear panel. If the 1011B is a 117
volt model, plug the power cord into a standard 117 volt
50-60 Hz outlet havinga capacityof at least 10 amps. If
the 101I B is an Export model, it should be first setto the
propervoltage tap: 208, 220, or 240 volts, 50-60Hz. Remove the cabinet,and locate the terminal strip nearthe top
of the power transformer. Thereare 3 terminal lugsand a
decal which indicatesthe voltage tap for each. Connection
has beenmade to the 220 volt tap at the factory. If your
supply voltage is 208 or 240 volts, unsolderthe red wire
and moveit accordingly.
FIXED ANTENNA
A standard PL-239 coax connector plug will fit the antenna
connector on the rear panel of the 1011B. For feed line
runs up to 50 feet, RG58 or RG59 is recommended. For
longer runs, RG8 or RG11 produces less line loss, particularly on 10 meters.
The standard type mobile antennas designed for 10 meters
or CB band will perform well with the 101 lB. Generally
speaking, a full length 8 or 9 foot whip will be more efficient than the shorter inductively loaded types.
MICROPHONE
The microphone input is designed for high impedance
microphonesonly. The choice of microphoneis important
for good speechquality, and should be givenseriousconsideration. The crystal lattice filter in the transceiverprovides all the restriction necessaryon audio response,and
further restriction in the microphone is not required. It is
more important to have a microphone with a smooth, flat,
responsethroughout the speechrange. The..microphone
plug must be a standard% in. diameterthree contact type.
The tip connection is for push-to-talk relay control, the
ring connectoris the microphone terminals,and the sleeve
is the common chassisground. The microphone manufacturer's instructions should be followed in connecting
the microphonecableto the plug. Either hand-heldor desk
type microphone with push-to-talk control will provide a
suitableinstallation. For VOX operation,this feature may
be disabled,if desired,by openingthe microphonecaseand
permanently connecting the contacts which control the
microphone.
CONTROL FUNCTIONS, FRONT PANEL
Any of the common antenna systems designed for use on
the 10 meter amateur band will work well with the 1011 B.
However, the amateur should consider an antenna system
which best fits his operational requirements. For example,
a rotatable beam antenna is usually best suited for DX operation.
Methods for constructing antennas and antenna
tuners are described in detail in the ARRL Antenna Handbook and similar publications.
It is recommended that
these publications be consulted during the design of any
antenna system.

RECEIVER TUNING (88B)
Precisetuning of a singlesidebandsignalis very important.
Do not be satisfied to merely tune until the voice can be
understood,but take the extra careof setting the dial to the
exact spot wherethe voice soundsnatural. Above all, avoid
the habit of tuning so that the voice is pitched higher than
normal. This is an unfortunate habit practiced by quite a
numberof operators.
The following points help to explain the effects of mistuning:
1. If you tune so the receivedvoice is higherthan normal
pitch, you will then transmit off frequency,and your voice
will soundlower than normal pitch to the other station. He
will probably retune his dial to make you soun'dright. If
you keep this up, you will gradually waltz one another
acrossthe band. If both of you are mistuning to an unnatural higherpitch, you will waltz acrossthe band twice as
fast. (And someonewill no doubt be accusedof frequency
drift.)
2. Mistuning results in serioushannonic distortion on
the voice,and should be quite noticeableto the averageear.
Somewill claim that if they don't know how the otherperson'svoice actually sounds,they can't tune him in properly,
but this is not true. With a little practice, it will be fairly
easyto tell. Somevoicesare relatively rich in harmonics,
and are easierto tune in than a personwith a "flat" voice.
Also, a transmitter, which is being operatedproperly with
low distortion will be easierto tune in than one which is
being over-drivenand is generatingexcessivedistortion.
Thereis no mistaking when you havea station tuned right
on the nose. It will sound just like "AM" so to speak.
Mainly, avoid the habit of tuning so everyonesoundshigher
than normal pitch, or like "Donald Duck". This is incorrect, unnecessary,
and soundsterrible.

exactly the same frequency as the one to which you are

While receiving, the carrier oscillator frequency is
located 300 cycles outside the passband of the crystal
lattice filter, thus providing a single heterodyne note,
or "single signal" for CW reception. When transmit.
ting in CW mode, the carrier frequency- is moved
approximately 800 cycles higher, placing it well inside the passband. This frequency shift is termed
"Off-set CW transmit frequency", and avoids the
problems encountered when the receive and transmit
frequency are exactly the same. This is desirable for
voice communication, of course, but when using the

GENERAL DISCUSSION
The Siltronix 1011B transceiverprovidessingle sideband,
suppressedcarrier transceiveoperation, and generatesthe
singlesidebandsignalby meansof a crystallattice filter. To
permit a logical discussionof this mode of operation, certain definitions are necessary
.
h1 a normal AM signal (double sidebandwith carrier), a
radio frequencysignalis modulatedwith anaudio frequency
signal. This is consideredby many to be merely a caseof
varying the amplitude of the carrier at an audio rate. hi
fact, however,there are actually sideoandfrequenciesgenerated, which are the resultsof mixing the RF and the A.F.
signals. Thesesidebandsare the sumof, and the difference
between,the two heterodynedsignals. In the detection()f this conventional AM signal, the two sidebandsare mixed
with the carrier to recoverand reproducethe audio intelligence. Thisis an inefficient meansof transmission,because
only 25 percentof the transmitted power is usedto transmit intelligence. Thereare other attendantdrawbacksalso.
The bandwidth of AM voice transmissionis approximately
6 KHz, while the actual demodulatedaudio is only approximately 3 KHz. The result is inefficient use of the frequency band,and overhaIf of the allotted bandis unusable
due to heterodynes,interference,and congestion..
h1 the single sideband,suppressedcarrier mode of transmission, only one of the sidebandsignalsis transmitted.
The other sidebandand the carrier are suppressedto negligible level. h1 addition to increasingthe transmissioneffi-.
ciency by a factor of four, single sideband effectively
doublesthe number of stations or channelswhich can be
usedin a givenband of frequencies.
It should be rememberedthat in the single sideband,suppressedcarrier mode of transmitting, the unwanted sideband and carrier are only suppressed,not entirely eliminated. Thus, with a transmitted signal from a transmitter
with 50 db sidebandsuppression,the other or unwanted
sidebandwill be present,and will be transmitted, but its
level will be 50 db below the wanted sideband. Whenthis
signalis receivedat a level of 20 db over 59, the unwanted
sideband will be present at a level of approximately55.
The sameis true of carrier suppression.With carriersuppressionof 60 db, and a signallevel of 20 db over 59, carrier will be present at a level of approximatelyS3 to S4.
For the following discussionrefer to the schematicdia.
gram,and to Figures3, 4, and 5.
SIGNAL GENERATION
When the push-to-talk switch on the microphone is pressed,
the transmitter portion of the transceiver is activated, and it
generates a single sideband, suppressedcarrier signal in the
following manner. Carrieris generatedby Q3 CarrierOscillator, which is a Pierce oscillator with the crystal operating
in parallelresonance.This stageoperatesin both the transmit and receivemodes. Whentransmitting, the RF output
of the oscillator is injected into the control grid of the
BalancedModulator, VI3. This b'alancedmodulator is a
beam deflection tube, and operatessimilar to a cathode ray
tube in that the electronbeamfrom the cathodeis deflected
to one output plate or the other by the chargeappearingon
the deflectionplates. The carrier signalfed to the control
grid of the balancedmodulator appearson both plates of
the output. The two plates are connectedto Transformer
T130I. The deflection plate DC voltagesare adjusted by
meansof the carrierbalancecontrol, RI30S, so that the RF
beingfed to the output plates will cancelout, and the output from Tl.301 will be zero. Audio signalsfrom the Microphone Amplifier, VI4, are applied as a modulating voltage
to one deflection plate, and the two sidebandsresulting
from the sum and difference frequenciesof the audio and
carrier signalsappearin the output of transformerTI30I.
Carrier suppressionis approximately 60 db down. The
Carrier Insertion control limits the amount of carrier that
~ be insertedin AM and thus protectsthe final amplifier
from beingover driven.
The double sideband,suppressedcarrier signal is then coupled from the secondarywinding of Tl30l to the crystal
filter, which suppressesthe lower sideband,and permits
only the upper sidebandto be fed to the First IF Amplifier
V7. The carrier frequency is generatedat approximately
5500.0 KHz, nonnal sideband. With the oppositesideband
crystal, the carrier crystal frequency will be 5504.6 KHz,
and this positionsthe double sidebandsignal on the other
side of the filter responsecurve,attenuatingthe tIpper sideband by at least50 db.
Q1, the VFO 2N706 Oscillator, operatesin the common
baseconfigurationasa Colpitts oscillator. Q2, the buffer, is
used for isolation. The extremelygood regulationachieved
through using the Zenerdiode regulatorD1712 acrossthe
bias supply voltage,alsocontributesto the stability.
The VFO in the ModellOllB exmbits extremelygoodstability after the initial wann-up period. Drift from a cold
start will be less than 2 KHz during the flIst hour. After
the initial wann-upperiod, drift will be negligible.
The single sideband,suppressed
carriersignalfrom the First
I.F. Amplifier is fed to the Transmit Mixer, V2, where it is
heterodyned with the VFO signal. The resultantsignal at
the desired transmit frequency is amplified by the Driver,
V3; and the PowerAmplifier, V4. The signalfrom the VFO
Amplifier is initiated in the transistorizedVFO/Buffer circuit QI and Q2. The signalfrom the VFO is routed to the
VFO Amplifier, and is mixed with the singlesidebandfrom
the IF amplifier, resulting in output in the 10 meterband.

of the First IF Amplifier is controlled through the Automatic uvel Control (ALC) network (using the AGC Amplifier VIO) to control the gain of the stage in response to the
average input power to the Power Amplifier. This ALC
system \vill compensate for any extremely strong input signals, but does not completely eliminate the necessity of
proper adjustment of the Mic. Gain Control. This feature
will help prevent the transmitter from flat topping and spurious emissions, but considerable distortion may occur if the
Mic. Gain Control is not properly adjusted. Refer to Operating Instructions.
TUNE AND CWOPERATION
Normally, the frequencyof the carrier oscillator is approximately 300 Hertz outside the 6 db passbandof the crystal
lattice filter. In TUNE position, the frequency of the carrier oscillatoris movedapproximately800 Hertz to placeit
well within the passbandof the crystal lattice filter. A
similar procedureis followed for CW to allow full carrier
'ootput during-cw operation.
f
CAUTION 1
CARE MUST BE EXERCISED WHEN TUNING
FOR THE 100 KHz HARMONICS OF THE
CALIBRATOR.
SEVERAL SIGNALS MAY
BE HEARD, ALTHOUGH THEY WILL BE
DEFINITELY WEAKER THAN THE COR.
RECT HARMONICS.
TRANSMIT AND RECEIVE SWITCHING
Transmit and receiveswitching is performed by relay KI.
In TRANSMIT, only those tubes that operate in the transmit mode ar~ operative,all others being biased to cutoff
through the relay contacts. In RECENE, with the relays
de-energized,the tubes that are used only in transmit are
cut off-in the samemanner. Relay Kl when de-energized,
feeds signals from the output Pj-netwcrk-+~.the receive~.
Note that relay KI will not operate when the BAND
SWITCHcontrol is in "CB" position.
RECEIVE
In RECENE position, or at allY time whenthe transmitter
is not in TRANSMIT, all circuits usedin transmitting are
disabled through the relay controlled circuits, KI. The
relay is energizedfor transmitting and de-energizedfor receiving. One contact, when de-energized,allows signals
from the transmitting tank circuit and antennato be fed to
the ReceiverR.F. Amplifier, V5; where they are amplified
and then fed to the control grid of the ReceiverMixer,V6.
The local oscillator signal from the VFO Amplifier is now
used to heterodynethe receivedsignalto the IF frequency.
All I.F. amplification is accomplishedat this frequency,
nominally 5500.0 KHz, through IF amplifiers V7 and VB.
In the Product Detector, V9A, the IF signalis heterodyned
With the carrier frequencygeneratedby Carrier Oscillator,
Q3. The resultantaudio is then amplified by V9B, which
then couplesto the AGC amplifier, VIO, and the audio output stage,VII.
POWERRATING
The Siltronix 1011B is capableof 180 watts, P.E.P.input
under steady state two-tone test conditions. The peak
envelope power, when voice modulated, is considerably
greater,typically 260 watts, or more.
Frequency calibration of the Model 10 II B is in 5 KHz in.
crements. Dial accuracy and tracking are quite good, but
caution must always be observed when operating near band
edges. Measuring the frequency with the 100 KHz cali.
brator when working near band edgesis recommended.
The built-in power supply producesa no-loadplate voltage
of approximately 880 volts. Under TUNE conditions, or
CW operation,this voltage will drop to approximately680
volts. Under steadystatetwo-tone modulation, the voltage
will drop to approximately710 volts. If the power amplifier idling current is 40 ma.,'and the two-tone current, just
before flat-topping, is 200 ma., the peaktwo-ton. current
will be 300 ma. Under theseconditions, the P.E.P. input
will be 710 volts times 300 ma..= 213 watts. Undervoice
modulation, becauseaveragepower is considerablyless,the
power amplifier plate and screenvoltageswill be maintained
higher, evenduring voice peaks,by the power supply filter
capacitors. Peakplate current will thereforealso be higher
thanwith two-tone test conditions. Under typical operating
conditions, peak plate current before flat-topping will be
350 ma. at 800 volts, to result in an input of 280 watts
P.E.P. Readingsof cathode current will not reflect this
power input, however,becauseof the dampingin the cathode current meter. Cathodecurrent readingsunder normal
voice input should not averagemore than 100 to 120 ma.
DIAL SET
POWER AMPLIFIER PLATE DISSIPATION
A DIAL SETcontrol has beenprovided so that dial adjustment can be made at any 100KHz point on the dial. With
calibrator on, set the dial to any loa KHz point closestto
the frequency you wish to work. Now adjust DIAL SET
control to zero-beatthe VFO with the 100KHz Calibrator.
This providesgreateraccuracyof dial readout.
There is often a misunderstandingabout the plate dissipation of tubesoperatedas ABI amplifiers undervoice modulation. In the Siltronix 1011B, while in the transmit mode,
and with no modulation, the plate voltage will be approximately 830 volts, the plate current 40 ma., and the power
input 33 watts.

Authorities agreethat the averagevoice power is 20 to 20db

the power amplifier can be tolerated,and a peak-to-average

tune the dial to the 27,100 KHz increment. Using the
~100 KHz crystal calibrator as a signalsource,tune the
signalfor zero beatand note the cor!espon~~'!g-dial
read.
ing. If the signaldoes not zero beat on the desireddial
increment,locate the VFO coverand carefully adjustthe
correct trimmer until it does.
Use an insulated alignment tool for adjustment. Accuracy in other parts of the bands will be quite good,but
rememberthat the 1011B is not to be considereda frequencystandard;Be cautious when operatingnearband
edges.
6. Troubleshooting.
The information contained in Figures6 and 7, together
with the voltageand resistancemeasurements
