  • AKG D-40 studio mic.
    • I was using this with my Icom-7300, IC-9100 with fantastic results.
    • The D40 professional microphone with its solid all-metal body. Its patented Varimotion diaphragm uses a unique laminated material to damp high resonance peaks, leading to a quantum leap in audio performance. The transducer is protected by a sturdy wire-mesh cap and can take extremely high sound pressure levels with ease.
    • An integratedstand adapter in combination with the included H440 mounting bracket makes the D40 a highly versatile tool.
    • I have the box also, AS NEW condition. $125.00 plus shipping or trade for / towards a 1500 watt dry dummyload, or an Icom 2100H, 2200H, 2300H, Yaesu mobile radio. What you got?

  • Tube Tester & Tubes.
    • I am a rookie tube guy (in Victoria) looking to get some stuff to start learning. Having started reading about tubes in old audio equipment on the internet & audio forums, I became a little overwhelmed & started looking for ways to learn. A tube tester & some tubes seemed a logical place to start. Someone suggested reaching out to a local radio association might be a good place to look.
