Here are some items for sale.  Prices do not include shipping unless 
noted. The $10 shipping is a flat rate box with a delivery confirmation 
  I will ship overseas.

Stancor 203-A Mobile AM Transmitter with Manual....$75 plus shipping
These were available from Stancor from 1948 to 1954. This is a 5 tube AM 
transmitter covering 27 to 32 MHz with a power input of 27 watts. It 
uses a 6J5 driving a 6V6 driving a 2E26 with a pair of 6V6's for the 
modulator. This is untested. Cosmetically the transmitter is not bad 
however it has an incorrect knob (the top knob) and the two RCA jacks 
have been replaced with BNC connectors. It appears that it would not be 
difficult to put back the original RCA jacks. It's rather rare to find a 
50's mobile transmitter or receiver that doesn't have any extra holes 
drilled in the enclosure. The bottom cover does not look to be original. 
According to the Moore Transmitter book, conversion kits for 75, 40 and 
20 meters were available for this transmitter. Includes a photocopy of 
the manual.

Electro-Voice Model 729S Ceramic Cardioid Desk Microphone with EV 417 
base...$45 plus shipping
This mike was seen in a lot of 1960's ham radio ads. This mike is in 
very nice condition. I tested it with my Swan 500C and it is a good 
working microphone.

Heathkit AK-7 Mobile Speaker....$25 plus  plus $10 shipping (USA)
This is from the early 1960's. This has been tested and sounds good!

Heathkit HD-11 Q-Multiplier.......$30 plus  plus $10 shipping (USA)
Unlike the QF-1, this has a built-in AC power supply. The front panel 
looks good but the unit has some missing paint on the top and bottom. 
This untested as I don't have a radio that is setup for a Q-multiplier. 
This is painted in the turquoise color to match the 1960's Heathkit 
equipment. Schematic is on BAMA.

Heathkit C-3 Capacitor Checker with Manual..$39 plus shipping
This unit is in good condition and works great. The eye tube is bright. 
Includes a photocopy of the manual.

5 Amp Variac (Variable Autotransformer)...$20 plus $10 shipping (USA)
This is a commercial variac that has been mounted in a metal enclosure. 
This is 110 volts in and 0-100 volts ac put with two outlets for the 
output. This has been tested and is a working unit.

McMurdo Silver 904 Capacitance Resistance Bridge....$35 plus shipping
This is from the late 1940's. The tubes are good and the eye tube opens 
and closes however, I can't vouch for accuracy as it still has all of 
the original capacitors inside. This is a neat unit if you collect 
McMurdo Silver gear.

Triad HV High Current Power Transformer and Triad Choke....$75 plus $10 
shipping (USA)
These came out of the same power supply. This transformer has the 
following windings: 115 v primary, 560 volts CT at 300 mA, 6.3 volts at 
6 amps, 6.3 volts at 6 amps, 5 volts at 6 amps. 6.3 volts at 1.2 amps
The choke is rated at 13 henries, 200 milliamps, 150 ohms dc resistance

UTC D4049 High Current Choke.............$75 plus $10 shipping (USA)
The specs are 10 henries at 325 mA. DC resistance is 100 ohms.

Bliley 100 KC Crystal - NOS, NIB.......$15 plus shipping
Bliley KV-3 100 kHz Crystal. This is NOS and new in the box.

Large Transmitter Coil on Ceramic Form.....$25 plus $10 shipping (USA)
The dimensions are 8 inches long by 3.5 inches in diameter. Their are 
two coils within the inside of this coil that rotate and are adjusted by 
a shaft protruding through the coil. I have no idea what transmitter 
this might have come out of.

URM-26B Signal Generator Accessories - 3.....$20 plus $10 shipping (USA)
3 URM-26B Accessories which go in the lid of the signal URM-26B signal 
generator. They are: 20 dB Attenuator, 6 dB Attenuator, Impedance 
Matching Network

Swan Model FP-1 Phone Patch.........$15 plus shipping
Although a phone patch isn't of much use today, this does make a neat 
accessory to go with your Swan equipment if you happen to be a Swan 

Swan 700S Front Panel and Dial.........$15 plus shipping

73 and thanks for looking.
