[Boatanchors] FS: AN/PRM-10 GDO

More cleaning up the ham shack. Found this rather nice AN/PRM-10 Test Oscillator Set and it is truly surplus to my needs.  The PRM-10 is basically a grid dip oscillator which covers 2.5 MHz to 400 MHz with a set of 7 plug in coil assemblies. Pictures are at:

Sometime ago, I put in up on the bench.  The PS seems to be working fine - I have the proper voltages, tubes light up, etc.  However I did not get any flicker on the meter, no indication of a dip when sweeping an LC circuit, etc.  I ran out of time (and interest) and put it aside.  It is quite nicely built but a heavy beast over all.  Frankly I wondered if it might be a very nice base for a homebrew GDO - keep the nice tuning head and meter and the very nice coil set and simply convert the guts to solid state.  

Overall condition seems to be quite nice - paint is chipped and one corner seam of the box is broken.

Anyways if you are interested, please drop me a line off list.  Send me your mailing address so I can run a shipping cost estimate. 

I am thinking of $25 plus cost of shipping - my guesstimate is that shipping will run maybe $25 or less (I think shipping weight will run 20 lbs or so).  Thanks for listening!
