For sale:

The last of my Heathkit transceivers.  Heath SB-104 (I think it is an A
model) Transceiver,  5 band solid-state SSB/CW plus 15 mhz.  Includes not
only the stock SSB filter but also the desirable crystal CW filter and
the rare SB-104-1 noise blanker.  Has only one change: an SO-239 in place
of the RCA audio jack for the output.  Nicely done.  Unit was ordered
from Heath in March of 1975.  Has silent keys drivers licence on chasis
for theft prevention.

9.5 out of 10,  very little use.  Transceiver is beautiful and collector
quality.  Lettering bright white.  Knobs are perfect.  Unit is a little
dusty.  Cabinet is very pretty.   Front panel is superb.

Performance is very nice.   If you've been on an expensive modern
transceiver, you'll only appreciate the quality of Heath engineering with
this rig.  Excellent output on all bands, especially with low SWR
conditions or by using an antenna tuner matching into 50 ohm load.  Has
been run along side the TR7A and the TS-830S and it receives as well or
better than either.  Noise blanker works as well; a little better on
wood=pecker type.  Frequency accuracy is right on;  you won't find a
nicer SB-104.

$350 plus shipping because of condition.  Missed Dayton?  Here's your
chance to pick up a beautiful classic Heathkit rig which will only go up
in value if you take care of it.   For sale to licensed amateur only.

Power supply, speaker,  and manuals are separate.
