I guess it depends how far back you want to go. As for WCRB, I believe its
first FM transmitter was a Western Electric 506B-1, circa 1948. It bought
the transmitter when the first WHAV-FM went dark in the early 1950s.

Does anyone know what make transmitter WBCN used when it was in the old John
Hancock building?  One report says it was made by General Electronic
Laboratories in Cambridge, MA, one of 39 made.

WGBH-FM and WCRB also had GELs.
