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

Hallicrafters S-119 Receiver............$45 plus shipping
This was the last of the Sky Buddy receivers made in 1961-1962. This is 
a 3 band, 3 tube receiver covering 540 kHz to 16.4 MHz. It has a BFO and 
an internal speaker. This radio works well and looks good however the 
speaker grill is partially cracked. A small hole can be seen in the 
photo. The fiber board back cover is partially bent.

Lafayette Receiver HA-600..........$65 plus shipping
This is a General coverage communications receiver with bandspread for 
80/75, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. Modes AM/SSB and CW. Coverage 0.15-30 
MHz. Produced 1970-1975. Works well. Cosmetically nice with some 
scratches on the case and two incorrect knobs.

Sprague TO-4 Tel-Ohmike Capacitance Checker& Manual...$110 plus shipping
This is a deluxe tester that will measure capacitance, power factor, 
leakage current, insulation resistance and resistance. It will measure 
capacitance from 1 pf to 100 mmf and resistance up to 20,000 Megohms. 
This unit works well and is in good condition. Includes a photocopy of 
the manual.
Signal R-68 Wireless Practice Telegraph Key ...$50 plus shipping
This is from the early 1930's. Condition is OK but the key has a bit of 
surface rust. I hooked this up to a DC source and the buzzer does work.
Motorola 62X21 AM/SW Table Radio..........$40 plus shipping
This is a six tube 2 band radio from around 1953. I believe this was the 
export model as it included short wave. This radio covers the AM 
broadcast band and one short-wave band of 6-16 MHz. This radio is in 
nice shape cosmetically and plays very well. It is very sensitive on 
short wave. Hooked to an out side antenna, I was able to listen to 
numerous short wave broadcast stations on the 6 MHz and 10 MHz bands and 
WWV on 10 and 15 MHz.

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 
3 Available
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.....$35 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.

Heathkit GD-1776 Programmable Home Heating Control in the Original 
Box....$18 plus shipping
This kit is from 1977. It looks like this was assembled and than put 
away in the original box. This auction includes the original manual and 
box, the controller and the thermostat. It is untested.

73 and thanks for looking.
