CYV-23510 FSK Coupling Adapter for TBK & TBM transmitters This is a small unit installed into a TBK (or TBM) transmitter to allow easy hookup of an external frequency shift keyer. Has two tuned RF transformers, one to couple the TBK osc to the 75 ohm FSK input, and the other to couple the 75 ohm FSK output to the TBK IPA. Controls are a common tuning knob for both transformers plus a switch to bypass the FSK. NAVSHIPS 900,206
