Getting ready for a local hamfest here next Saturday and here are 2 more radios 
that I thought I would offer on the list before I trot them out to the hamfest. 
These both are missing parts, etc and are only candidates for restoration 
(maybe) or for parts themselves.

These are both bears to ship so I really, really would like to find a buyer who 
will pick them up. I will ship but you will have to pay the shipping charge plus 
some extra for getting them packaged correctly.

No manuals and both are obviously 'as is, where is' - Will have pictures in a 
day or so. Contact me directly via email if interested. Prices are only as 
suggested - make offer up or down if you want - I can only say 'yes or no'!

Hammarlund HQ-150
Listed this one before but here goes again. No cabinet, Q-Multiplier missing, 
100 kHz cal crystal and tube missing.  Also a few knobs. Otherwise seems to be 
complete although the tuning knob slips. Thinking $50 but offers welcomed. Good 
parts receiver but it would be a shame.

Johnson Viking II
No cabinet. Minus a few small tubes and one control and knob ('Fine Coupling' 
whatever that is). Panel is flaking. This is a wonderful brute of a transmitter 
that is very well built. Smooth controls and very heavy duty. Sigh. I would love 
to see someone purchase this to restore it. Very heavy.

Basically I'm culling the herd and these are definitely surplus to my needs.
Pictures will be available via email if you want. They will be at the Grandview
hamfest (Kansas City, Missouri area) this Saturday along with a few other rigs.
