This auction is for a GN-58-A Hand Crank Generator, and Legs. The following components are included in this auction: (1) GN-58-A Hand Generator for AN/GRC-9 U.S. Army Radio (2) Hand Cranks (1) LG-2A Leg (2) LG-3 Legs We tested this item as follows: Cranks turn very smoothly (but not without resistance!) we were unable to further test this item due to the lack of proper equipment and/or knowledge of this item. Stand is sturdy and in great condition! If my own mother was bidding on this item, I would want her to know that: This auction is for a used military hand generator in good condition, it has some light rusting and one of the screws to the power socket on the bottom of the unit is pretty stubborn but will likely only need some firm pressure. The legs are like in like new condition, with hardly a scratch on them. It was originally used for the AN/GRC-9 Military Radio Set. Additional Information: Generator GN-58-A, one (1) each US made. These generators were manufactured by Tele King Corporation for the U.S. Army Signal Corps on Order Number 41617-Phila-52-11. The GN-58 is a DC hand cranked generator producing outputs of 1.4, 6.3, 105 and 425 VDC when operated by turning a pair of GC-7 cranks which are inserted into the 3/8" square drive sockets on each side of the generator. Flip up covers for the drive sockets are visible in two of the photos. In use, it is normally mounted on three legs (two LG-3-B and an LG-2-B which includes a seat for the operator, or the shortened jump version which has no seat). The generator is connected to the RT-77 or RT-77A/GRC-9 radio by Cord CD-1086 attached to the socket on the bottom, and will operate both the receiver and the transmitter, although in normal operation the receiver will be powered by a Battery BA-48. It was originally produced as GN-58 near the end of WW-II (circa 1944) as a replacement for the GN-57-A used with the SCR-694-C. When the AN/GRC-9 replaced the SCR-694-C shortly after the war, most of the accessories, including the GN-58-A (a slightly modified GN-58), were carried over to the new radio set. It was superceded circa 1956 by the G-43/G, which is essentially a GN-58-A with a new nameplate and a redesigned tripod leg assembly. The GN-58-A was also used with the RS-6 and will operate the AN/GRC-109 when connected to either the PP-2684/GRC-109 Power Supply or the CN-690/GRC-109 Regulator, although the generator specified for that set is the G-43/G. This item will be carefully packaged for safe shipment. The photos are of the actual item and all the components for sale. Unless stated otherwise, power cords and/or adapters are not included.
The Shipping weight of this item is 45 pounds.
