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

Heathkit SA-2060 Legal Limit Antenna Tuner with Manual...$375 plus shipping
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.

Westclox WT8AMP Canadian Military Telegraph Key..........$65 plus shipping
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.

Skillman Telegraph Key..............$38 plus shipping
This a Japanese key from the 1960's that was sold by many of the radio 
stores of that time. If you started in ham radio in the 1960's, you may 
well have had one of these keys as your first! This key is in excellent 
condition and looks like new!

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.....$30 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.

Acoustic Research Turntable - 1960's and AR Brochure...$100 plus shipping
This is a one speed (33 1/3) turntable mounted on an oiled walnut base. 
This one has a Shure cartridge installed. The specs are shown in the 
photo below. I hooked this up to my Fisher 800B and Cerwin Vega HED 
speakers and listened to a few records. The turntable is in good 
operating condition. The dust cover is included but it is cracked. I 
will also include an original 1960's AR catalog which does have this 
turntable in it.

73 and thanks for looking.
