Astatic 10 DA, High Impedance Microphone For Sale:

This is an Astatic 10 DA high impedance microphone
head. It is the head only, and does not include a
stand. It has a 3 pin connector built in that would
plug into a stand (similar to what is used by a D-104).

This mic works well, and has a nice pattern on the scope.
It is chrome plated, and really shines! There are a few
pits in the chrome, but over all, it really shines.

One just like this sold on that auction place for $89.
Buy this one for $50.


B & K 606 Dynatech Tube Tester For Sale:

Yes, some of us still use tubes. But the corner
drug store no longer has a a tube tester available.

The B & K 606 "DynaTech"tube tester is considered
to be one of the better units available.

This one works fine. I have tested many tubes on it,
and all seems great.
It includes the tube "look up" charts paper work.

A non working unit recently sold at that auction place
for $188. Buy this working unit for $120.


Pair of Analog AC Meters For Sale:

These are two matching meters. Both are Shurite analog
2 1/2 inch AC meters. One is 5 amps AC and the other is
300 Volts AC, although 120 V is right in the middle, so it
can be used for 120 V AC as well as 240 V AC. They are
Shurite 8503 Z, and 8407 Z, respectively.

These meters are NEW, still sealed in their original packing.
They would make an ideal pair for monitoring AC line voltage
and current.

Buy both of these for $48.


SSB Audio Filter For Sale:

Many moons ago, MFJ had a variety of audio filters
available. These were built on a PC board about 2
x 3 inches in size, and made to be added to various
rigs. Typically they were used in homebrew rigs, or
in many cases to enhance the filtering in QRP rigs.
They are audio filters using op amps, and really work
quite well.

This unit is the SBF-2, which is a SSB filter. According
to the paper work which is with it, it has bandwidths of
2500 Hz, 2000 Hz, and 1500 Hz, plus a "High Pass" mode.
Although specs say it is powered by 6 to 30 volts, most
used either 9 or 12 V DC.

Only $15.
