I found these items as I was sorting through my collection of parts to try to acquire more space. I don't recall where or when I got them, but since they were Collins, maybe someone would know what they are for.

The cards appear to be from some sort of TTY equipment, most likely military. The FSK receiver card is 35E6-SW, and the FSK transmitter card is 34C2-SW.

The Collins filter-reactor appears to be unused. The picture is somewhat hard to read, so here is what is listed.
Serial 128 Part number 678-1192-00
Classification audio
Henrys .0665

If anyone knows what they are for or has a use for them, I would like to see them go to a new home rather than scrap.

John

The cards are almost certainly from a military transmitter or receiver. Collins built a lot of military comm equipment for a lot of years. The place to ask about these would be the Collins Collectors Association.

7.5 million radios by 1982! We had an informational video tape made by Collins to introduce the ARN-118 TACAN system, used by tactical aircraft and the Space Shuttle - the intro to the video had some stats about radios made, countries served, sub/surface/air/space platform info, and a bunch of not-so-forgettable early 80's synthesizer music.....

I worked on so much Collins stuff - their manufacturers number is one of two I remember - 13499. I still recognize the Collins part number formats and used to be able to recite the "preferred" Collins transistor list - 2N697, 2N1893, 2N2219, 2N2222, 2N2905, 2N2907, 2N3440, and the list goes on further, but I forgot most of the rest.

Collins stuff is also very collectible. From the boatanchors to the aviation stuff, all collectible. :)

The Collins filter-reactor, or inductor would have many applications in power supplies, etc., so that is certainly useful.
