Here are a few items for sale.  Prices do not include.  I will ship 

Heathkit SB-200 80-10 Meter Linear Amplifier...$425 plus shipping
This is a 1 KW 8-10 meter linear amplifier that runs off of 110 VAC or 
220 VAC. This amp is unmodified with the exception of a BNC jack 
replacing the RCA connector (good mod!)and is in very nice shape with no 
extra holes and all of the correct knobs. It has a few paint chips and a 
previous owner put some kind of ID number on the back of the unit. 
Nothing has been arced or burned and the ham who built this did a really 
excellent job on the soldering/wiring. Puts out around 500 - 600 watts 
with 100 watts drive on 110 volts. I have used this with my Yaesu 
FT-1000MP transceiver. Includes a photocopy of the manual.

Swan 500C SS-16B Special Transceiver & 117XC Power Supply....$300 plus 
This unit works quite well. I measured around 200 watts CW output on my 
Bird meter with a dummy load. The receiver sounds good. Cosmetically the 
unit looks good however it does have some scuffs and scratches to the 
outer case. I have been using this radio for the past 18 months and have 
made hundreds of contacts with it on 75, 40 and 20 meter phone. Most 
recent was on field day last month where it made over 100 QSO's 
operating field day from my shack.

Heathkit SA-2060 Legal Limit Antenna Tuner & Manual...$350 plus shipping
With Original Manual. This is a legal limit tuner that cover all 
frequencies between 160 and 10 meters. It will match balanced and 
unbalanced lines , single wire and ladder lines. It has a dual watt 
meter that has a 200 watt and a 2000 watt scale so you can read forward 
and reflected average power. This tuner is in excellent condition with a 
few light scratches to the outer case. The inside is clean with no 
evidence of abuse or arcing. This is a great tuner rated at 5/5 with 31 
reviews in the equipment reviews section on the e-ham web site.

Collins Radio SM-2 Dynamic Microphone....$275 plus shipping
This is a clean working unit with a few very minor scratches. It is 
wired for a Collins KWM-2 or a 32S transmitter. I used this with my 
KWM-2A and also with a Swan 500C with an adaptor for the plug. Worked 
well and received great audio reports.

Westclox WT8AMP Canadian Military Telegraph Key..$50 plus shipping
(I have several of these) The key appears to be new old stock and in 
excellent condition. I believe these were used by the Canadian Military 
in W.W.II.

USN AN/URM-25F RF Signal Generator - Original Manual......$25 shipped
Original manual in excellent condition.

Hallicrafters SX-43 Receiver with Manual....$130 plus shipping
The receiver works but would benefit from a restoration. I listened to 
signals on the AM broadcast band, WWV at 5, 10 and 15 MHz as well as 
signals on several short wave bands. I did not hear signals on the 
higher bands or on the FM band so I would assume it needs help. The 
s-meter works, the BFO and crystal filter work. Cosmetically, it has 
lots of scuffs and scratches as can be seen in the photos. It has all of 
the correct knobs. It does not have any dings, dents or extra holes. 
This is a a heavy receiver. Includes a photocopy of the manual.

Hewlett Packard HP 711A High Voltage Bench Supply...$125 plus shipping
This is a regulated high voltage power supply with an output of 0-500 
volts dc with a maximum current of 100 mA. Unregulated ac output is 6.3 
volts at 6 amps maximum and 12.6 volts center tap at 3 amps maximum. The 
supply has two meters. The current meter measures 0-100 mA and the volt 
meter measures 0-500 volts or 0-50 volts with the push button. This 
includes a photocopy of the HP 711A manual.

Advance Electric Dow-Key Clone Coaxial Relay....$25 plus shipping
Antenna changeover relay made by Advance Electric which looks identical 
if not more ruggedly built than a Dow-Key relay. Possibly this company 
built the relays for Dow-Key. This is a 24 VDC unit with SO-239 
connectors. Tested and is in very good condition.

TenTec Electro-Voice 729 Microphone.....$25 plus shipping
EV Electrovoice 729 High Impedance Microphone with stand. This mike has 
a TenTec logo so it probably sold by TenTec for use with their ham radio 
equipment. Cosmetically the mike looks good but is missing some paint in 
places. I hooked the mike up to my Bogen amp and it is working. Sounded 
very good with nice strong audio when listening to it. It is currently 
wired with a 2 pin microphone connector most likely wired for use with a 
Johnson Ranger or a Johnson Valiant transmitter.

73 and thanks for looking.
