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

WRL Globe Sidebander DSB-100 Transmitter.........$175 plus shipping
This is a 9 tube, 80-10 meter, AM, DSB and CW unit. Input power is 100 
watts PEP DSB, 50 watts CW and 40 watts AM. These were available in 1958 
and 1958. Pretty good shape cosmetically. It has the correct knobs, 
meter and a clean front panel. The back side has a small cut out the 
metal above the antenna jack and a few small holes in the back of the 
cabinet. The cabinet has a few small blemishes on the top.  Power 
transformer is OK, otherwise untested

Trio Kenwood TS-510D Transceiver & PS-510D Power Supply....$275 plus 
Rare early Japanese boatanchor transceiver that looks good but needs 
work. This is an 80-10 meter transceiver that will operate SSB and CW. 
Input power is 160 watts using a pair of 6146's. The radio has 14 tubes, 
2 FET's, 13 transistors and 29 diodes. The receiver does work but after 
about 10 minutes the signals cut out with the audio remaining. I did 
listen to signals on 80, 40 and 20 meters on both upper and lower 
sideband. The transmitter does not work. The main tuning is very smooth 
with no backlash. The radio looks pretty good. It does have some 
scratches and scuffs. The panel is very clean and has all of the correct 
knobs. Their are no extra holes and I am not aware of any mods. Insides 
need a good cleaning. Includes a photocopy of the manual and the 
connecting cable that goes between the power supply and the transceiver.

Heathkit SB-610 Monitor Scope..........$130 plus shipping
Clean working unit with a photocopy of the manual.

Rare” National Radio NC-45.............$175 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. It has all of 
the correct knobs and I do not find any extra holes.  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.

Huge 100 uH Roller Inductor (Roller Coil).....$90 plus shipping
This measures 100 uH max. This also has a rotary switch with large 
contacts to switch in extra capacitance or inductance. Dimensions are 14 
inches long x 7.5 inches wide and 8.5 inches high.

Sylvania Electric Type 134 Polymeter VTVM...$20 plus shipping
The unit is working but needs calibration on the resistance scales. It 
has the capability of measuring RF voltage. It does not include test 
leads or a manual. Manuals are available from a number of sources on the 

Jackson Model 640 Signal Generator....$40 plus shipping
I have two of these units. This is a well built, internally shielded 
signal generator that covers 100 kHz to 38 MHz in six bands. This unit 
will put out an internally modulated signal as well as a CW signal. It 
also has switchable output levels and adjustable output. Both units work 
well. I opened the units up, de-oxed all of the switches and tested all

Realistic DX-440 AM FM Short Wave Portable Receiver...$90 plus shipping
A real nice DX-440 All Band Portable Receiver with the original box and

ATS-803A. The receiver has been well cared for an is in excellent 
condition. This model has a BFO which will allow you to listen to single 
sideband and CW stations as well as AM short-wave. The radio works well. 
Includes a set of batteries.
