Woody's
WUI HAM RADIO 
Aeroflex IFR FM/AM-1100s
Service Monitor


During the early 1980s Woody worked for the 
Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company.

As part of the Bell Telephone System, he specifically worked for the regional Mountain Bell division
In the years before the Phone Company ("Ma Bell") was broken up by dictate from the Federal Government (what a terrible mistake that was) Woody worked in the Mountain Bell Two-Way Radio Shop. In this environment he serviced various (predominately) Motorola two-way mobile, base station and repeater equipment. 
Additionally during that era Bell also installed and managed the "Pre-Cellular" MTS and IMTS (Mobile Telephone Service and Improved Mobile Telephone Service) car telephones and base stations.

This photo of the 1125 Osage (Denver) building dates to about 1925 On the main floor the north end of the building housed the Teletype Shop. The second floor housed the TV Shop (Bell-managed television facilities) The south end of the building housed the Radio Shop where Woody worked
This was one of the benches in the screen room sporting an older Cushman CE-5 service monitor A bench in the screen room had another Cushman CE-5 service monitor Woody with the Chevy Suburban used to access remote repeater and base-station huts around Colorado's front range and mountainous areas.

Besides his Amateur Extra Class ham radio license, Woody also has 
(originally FCC Second Class) a General Class Commercial Radiotelephone license.

In our "Screen Room"
(the RF-tight repair and test area seen above) 
there were multiple "service monitors" in use: 
Two Cushman and, later,
An IFR FM/AM-1100s

Years later Woody found an IFR on eBay and bought it for use managing ham radio equipment.
This is the eBay service monitor presently in use at
WUI.

CURIOUS:
Does anyone know:
- The part number of the Oscilloscope Cathode-Ray-Tube (CRT) ?
- A source of replacement CRTs ?

Does anyone have any documentation as to:
- What were the years it was produced ?
- What was the original sales price of the IFR FM/AM-1100s ?
