Hi Gang:

I'm listing these for an old-timer buddy of mine who doesn'r want to know
about computers.....

The Ranger is in very nice condition cosmetically.  There are a couple of
small places on the front panel  and cabinet where the paint was worn and
needs to be touched up properly buit overall the paint is excellent.  Touch
up paint can be purchased that will match the color nicely and with a small
amount of effort this radio can be made to look pretty much like new.

Electrically it appears to be unmodified.  I am told that the screen
resistor needs to be replaced.

The Matchbox is the 275 Watt version with the built-in SWR meter.  This
piece has been modified to offer an unbalanced RF output (coaxial cable)
where the original Matchbox only tuned balanced line (open-wire line) and
random-length wires.  The meter on the front panel is not original; it is a
Heathlit meter.  The case appears to be in excellent condition.

Both pieces come with documentation - which are copies of the factory
manuals and notes.

Asking price for both pieces is $350.00 plus packing and shipping costs.  I
would prefer local pickup in the Burlingto VT area but could discuss
delivery within a reasonable radius of Burlington.

If interested please reply by e-mail.  mc at sover.net
