Hi folks,
    I have the following available for relocation to a new home.  They're
weighing down one corner of my shop, and I don't think I'm going to ever
get to playing with them, so somebody else ought to have the chance:
   1 basically complete AN/URT-23B(V) transmitting unit, consisting of an
USB/LSB/RTTY/CW xmtr/exciter, T-827G/URT;   a BIG 1kw conservative for
continual operation amplifier, AM-3924B(P)/URT;   and pwr supply
PP-3916B/UR (req.s 440/208v 3-ph).
   I think, from the little I can find on them, the exciter/xmtr puts out
very low pwr, <1 watt, 2.0 - 30.0mc in 0.1 kc steps, synthesized.  Looks
very much like an R-1051 receiver.
   The amp has (probably) a pr of 4CX-1500's, driven by a pr of 8122's.  I
have only briefly opened the amp, couldn't read the final's nr's, and
couldn't easily get the drivers out.  I've found limited info on the whole
unit on the web, very little specifics on the xmtr/driver exc. maybe it's
only 100mw (does have a cupla tubes).
   These have been stored out of the weather for quite a few yrs, but look
to be in good condtion.  Truly untested, I have only opened the amplifier
and transmitter briefly for a visual inspection.
        I have put some more info on a webpage:

Total weight of the 3 items in 1 unit is abt 350 lbs.
        I will be at the Shelby hamfest Thurs. PM thru Sat. noon this
week.  If anyone is genuinely interested, I'll pull them out and take some
digi-pix, and could beg/borrow/steal/rent a small trailer and bring them
to Shelby.  Otherwise it would be a pickup only deal.
    I would like to sell or trade these as a lot.  I haven't seen any
listings for them, and would suggest that a value in the neighborhood of
$1000 would be reasonable.  I'm interested in trades of vintage amateur
equipment, preferably lighter in weight.  SP-600 receivers are of
particular interest to me, as is much other Hammarlund equipment.  Most
other brands are appreciated as well, any offers will be considered.
