Description

The record contains 55 TX-0 plug in bottle transistor modules. The modules are made up of 2 parts. There is a seven pin socket with 2 transistors. 2 resistors, and 1 capacitor soldered to the circuit side of the socket. There is also a clear plastic bottle that screws onto the socket and encapsulates the soldered components. The top of the bottle is painted white. The bottles have a paper labeled with a "C-#" number. The numbers present on the labels are 9, 12, 14, 22, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 37, 40, 57, 58, 64, 67, 68, 71, 73, 80, 81, 83, 84, 86, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 107, 45, 106, 23, 21, 8, 20, 2, 7, 28, 33, 44, 48, 53, 54, 60, 63, 75, 99, 101, 103, 104, 124, 126, 127, and 128. Bottles “C-9” and “C-64” also have "V = Low Up JAM" written on the paper label. The label that reads "C 126" also has "SLOW SI FALL" handwritten on it.
