If you've ever been curious about the set up of a Bauer 707 transmitter, here's a chance to peek inside with a series of still images, accompanied by a stirring sound track. 

Video creator and ham radio operator Philip Neidlinger writes, “I commenced the ultimate mad science project to end all projects approximately mid-February 2017. The Bauer 707 is now on the air and sounding great. The current transmitter output is 250 W carrier into an inverted vee at 50' (apex).”

Also, be sure to keep an eye out for an unexpected cameo from one of cinema's most famous movie villains. 

UPDATE: Reader Duane Williams points out that "The opening frame of the video is not part of a Bauer 707. It is a custom part manufactured by Phil." It is not stock; he explains, " It has been modified for HAM use and thus has additional parts in the photos not found in a stock 707."
