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!
