Here are some items for sale.  Prices do not include shipping.  I will 
ship overseas.

Swan 600R Custom Receiver with SS-16B Filter....$350 plus shipping
This radio covers 80-10 meters and matches the Swan 600T transmitter. 
The custom model comes with the Noise Blanker, Variable Notch Filter, 
and 16 pole SS-16B SSB filters.The radio is in excellent condition and 
receives well. The insides of the unit are also very clean. The power 
transformer has been replaced and the new one can be seen in the last 
photo. The only other issue is that one of the disks is missing from one 
of the knobs.

Rare” National Radio NC-45.............$125 plus shipping
This is an 8 tube receiver made from 1941-1945 covering 550 kHz to 30 
MHz. Most models made were made the NC-45 which is an ac/dc receiver. 
The NC-45A has a transformer operated power supply. This radio does work 
and receives signals on all bands but it really need to be recapped and 
aligned. Cosmetically OK but also needs to be cleaned up.  The insides 
look OK but also need to be cleaned up. One interesting thing that I 
noticed is that the main tuning and bandspread knobs are both weighted, 
rather heavy and appear to have come from the factory that way. I do not 
have a manual but they are available from several sources on the web. I 
will include a schematic.

Kenwood TS-520 Transceiver...............$120 plus shipping
The unit is in very nice shape cosmetically and is compete. The receiver 
works very well but the transmitter is not working. The insides are 
complete and in good condition.

This is a 5 tube radio from 1942. New electrolytics and most of the 
paper capacitors have been replaced. The set plays well. Cosmetically it 
is in in nice shape although their is a small chip out of the top near 
the edge which can be seen in the photo and the plaskon grill has been 
carefully glued where it had cracked.

of watts. The radio works and is in pretty nice shape with a few small 

Harman Kardon A-10 Allegro Vintage Hi-Fi Amplifier....$60 plus shipping
This is a mono unit with a pair of two 12AX7's driving a pair of 6BQ5's. 
The rectifier tube is a 6V4. I powered up the unit and it has bad hum so 
it needs new electrolytic caps. The unit is in nice shape and includes 
the original box but no manual.
