The recent turnover of the large Voice of America broadcasting station in Delano California to the General Services Administration for disposal potentially sealed the fate of the last compete Collins 250,000 watt ( 1 Megawatt PEP) Model 821A-1 HF Autotune transmitters in the world.

The  Collins Radio Heritage Group (CRHG) has saved the largest HF Shortwave Transmitter made by Collins Radio. Now, they need your help to display it for future generations.
