Item Description:
        Now is your chance to own this prize piece of highly collectable Collins amateur radio equipment.  Developed in 1963 to meet the needs of an emerging market in VHF/UHF single sideband, the 62S-1 sold poorly.  Almost 40 years later, however, because of their scarcity, they are one of the most sought-after pieces of S-line gear.

The 62S-1 is a transverter which is connected to any S-line transmitter and receiver tuned to the 14 mc. band for operation on 2 or 6 meters.  Output is CW or sideband but can be used with an external AM exciter.  Nominal output of the rig is 65 watts, PEP, into a 50-ohm load.

This specimen is in very good condition. The inside chassis is absolutely dirt- and grime-free with no obvious modifications.  All tubes are in place.  The rig is in its proper cabinet, and the cabinet condition is very good.  The trim ring has a small divot on the top lefthand corner, but can be easily touched up.  The front panel is good with only a few minor blemishes.  All lettering is clear, readable and not worn.  The tuning knob aluminum insert could be replaced.

Unit comes with original manual (blue cover, 3rd edition), AC power cord and high voltage adapter cable.

Successful bidder agrees to pay packing, shipping and insurance charges.
