>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.
