Heath and Boatanchor folks,

I received the following messages from Denise Gillen and her permission to
post them on the Heath and Boatanchor lists.   The GR-681 is available for
$50 or for donation to a bona-fide non-profit (501 c3 tax deductible) group
such as a museum or CHRS, California Historical Radio Society.  Collectors
only, no dealers please.
Please respond to the following  e-mail address, not to mine

<kgillen at> (Keith Gillen)

Do you know of anyone who collects Heathkit Televisions? - or any
televisions? - I am try to find a home for a very nice GR-681 built by
my brother in the 60's.  Yes it works and is in a teak or walnut
cabinet.  It is in the San Francisco Bay Area so may be more convenient
for someone in California to transport.

Thank you Denise Gillen

>>Hi Richard,

Rich,  Thanks again for your reply - What dollar value?- I have no idea -
$50 or nothing - we are happy to donate it to a fund raiser - I just want
to recycle this lovely object, which will be even more valuable in another
20 years to someone who is serious about taking care of it.  Thanks, Denise
