FOR SALE:

  • Ten-Tec Eagle 599 AT Transceiver radio, serial number 3055591160, purchased from Ten-Tec USA in July 2014.  This radio has been in storage since arrival in November 2014 and it has never been used in transmit mode, not even into a dummy load.  Last year I had the opportunity to compare the receiver of this Eagle at a local fellow amateur’s station against an Icom 756 Pro 3.  This has been the only occasion that this radio was powered up. In the side-by-side comparison the Eagle’s receiver fared equally well to the Icom.  The radio was then placed in storage in its original shipping box and has never been hooked-up since.  The original version has not been updated.  Firmware updates are free and available from  Tentec.
  • The Eagle c/w Operator’s Manual in a binder, 3 roofing filters: 15kHz, 2.4 kHz and 1.8 kHz, AC power cord, and the stock 702 hand mike.  It has the optional Autotuner and Noise Blanker, as well as the optional Mobile Mounting Bracket Model TT-321.  It also comes with an additional aftermarket heavy weight, color matched bronze tuning knob w. ballbearing finger dimple.  This knob was imported from Europe.My cost on all the above items is about CAD $ 2100.00  (currently US $ 1600).  Looking only at serious offers close to those figures to offset my costs.  Email: pgtraveller at hotmail dot com
  • Heathkit SB-230 HF Amplifier, rated at 600 watts or more and is set up for 220V service.  The tube is a conduction cooled ceramic 8873.  Since it doesn’t need a fan or blower it is a totally silent amp.  It works on the classic 80-40-20-15-10 meter bands.  The amp is all original, no mods have been done.  It was built from a kit around 1975 by VE7BCF, Ary Spaans (SK), an industrial electronics tech who was a true gentleman and my mentor.  Ary was not a believer in using more than 100 watts unless absolutely necessary.  Since he had a KLM Yagi on a 70 ft tower, he rarely needed the amp.  The ceramic tube has therefore very low hours usage and should give good service for many years to come.  I have personally never used this amp but I will guarantee that it is in excellent condition.  I have periodically plugged it into a 120V outlet and kept it on for several days in order to keep the tube in good working shape.  It comes with the original Heathkit assembly manual and handwritten notes by the builder.  $500.00.

  • Ameritron AL-80B HF Amplifier, rated at 1 KW and is set up for 220V service.  It has taps on the transformer and can be changed to 110V.  The tube is the original 3-500, like new and in great condition.  It works from 160m to 10m on all current 9 ham bands.  I purchased this amp last year from a local ham after watching it in action on his big Yagi, but I have never used it myself.  It was originally purchased from NTF Communications in Calgary.  $900.00 firm.
