6528, CX-345, 6011, WE 421A & 422A, 2AP1 with burn trace, several NOS
Ediswan Mazda #'s.  most common #'s are worth too little to bother hunting
for -- I don't have them cataloged

3.  NARDA Microline RF heads -- 0.2 - 0.5 GHz Model 18500-5;   8.9 - 9.5
GHz Model 18500-121   VG condx, $10 each

9.  F-15/U RF output lo-pass filter.  abt 6x6x8 black crinkle aluminum box

11.  Heath IM-13 VTVM. unchecked, 2 knobs wrong, with probe  $10.
12.  automotive test sets from 1953 -- T&H coil/condenser checker;   VOM.
brownish pebble-grain fabric covers, attached leads, dusty but seem OK.
need minor repair (one has loose meter)   $10 each, $15 the pair
13.  B&K model 440 CRT tester/rejuvenator.  w/manual, untested, looks

tubes.  would look good in your shack--blue steel case with color-laden
front! $20
18.  ME-9A/U miltimeter.  well used til I had to go mobile.  looks just OK.
no cover nor original leads  $10
19.  TS-251U/P  abt 1 cubic foot steel case that opens to dials and knobs.
uses octals, wide-range input power supply.  telephone line test set?  VG
20.  asst. small power and fil. xfrmrs.  query
21.  multi-IC RTTY controller.  one of several built locally some years
ago.  may well work - untested.  $5
22.  Everette E-2 and Trimm-K headsets.  $5 each
23.  asst. military headsets and handsets -- H-81A/U, H-189, M-80, etc.

within design limits.  minor p/s hum.  AC/DC chassis "hot".  covers .54 to
31 Mc in 4 bands, has standby sw, truly lousy "CWO" BFO action.  receives
SW and WWV well & looks good, tho.  $50

off usual 9v batt., spkr "scratches" when volume turned but no stations.
gilt on front fading at top, minor dings and scratches.  $5

watt in for 10+ watts out
11.  any 2-meter conversion info for T-416: FM 150Mc Tx.   is 2-channel
xtal, 40-wattt job using 829B.  another version uses three 2E26's (T-278)
12.  copy of, or original Surplus Conversion Handbook #3.   have #'s 1 and
2 for copying at  $10 each.

Which gets to the manuals:

I offer copies of these just in case you can't get them anywhere else.
It's actually cheaper to buy them from the regular sources, as I don't have
lo-price access to a copier, and I can't bind them.  Check with:  Pete
Markavage 1-908-238-8964 in Sayreville, NJ.,   Gary Gompf at:
w7fg at      or: query line 1-918-333-3754;    order line
1-800-807-6146 (neat number, huh?)   also:  Mike Horvat    mmhorvat at
     David Crowell  KA1EDP in N. Scituate RI
        For military manuals and many large gov'ment-type test instruments,
contact Fair Radio  1-419-227-6573     they have a web-site as well --
search on Fair Radio using Webcrawler or suchlike.

        (stuff in parenthesis is o=original, c=copy, cc= condensed copy, etc.,
followed by approximate number of pages involved.  cost is usually 15 cents
per page, less for larger quantities, plus postage, but no less than $1ppd.
 A one-page job is just a schematic and little else.)  Note:  I don't
usually sell originals -- only copies.  I AM responsible for typographical
errors -- sorry.
