Re: {Collins} 25kc cal

 Look up the German BN-58 receiver. This has an external calibrator unit
that used a comb generator.  That kind of circuit was a battery operated
device that plugged into the antenna and ground sockets. This is an old
design circa 1958 but would seem to be suitable. No drilling, messing with
switches, wiring or other undesirable mods required.

Here is the listing and he did what I was talking about and it is all done
for you.   Not your average piece of “tube gear” with all the charm that
entails but will get the job done.  Obviously it is also not a “mod” to the
75S-3B calibrator but a whole different deal that would need to be cobbled
in by disabling the 75S-3B calibrator, cutting into the switching wiring,
deriving some power and then mounting it inside somewhere where it will not
cause birdies. Note that this guy has done it by dividing down from 1 MHz,
and not 100 KHz.

Me, I do not think it is worth it.  It will take some significant switching
changes and really mess with the 3B.

But, if you are into this:
