  • Yaesu FT-991 Ham radio 100W “ham pack” +Astron SSM-30 power supply +more.
    • Included is :
      • The Radio: Yaesu FT-991 , works perfectly, no scratches.
      • The power supply: Astron SSM-30.
      • Fused Wiring harness that allows for DC in , AC in (through the power supply) and DC out .
      • All connectors are Anderson PowerPole and included are adapters to connect to different power sources.
      • Included is also some other cheap stuff like a telescopic antenna ~1.2 m long for 2m and 70 cm bands, a voltage tester for cigarette lighter.
      • I’ll haply throw in a home brew, well tuned, 20m dipole if you don’t have an HF antenna to get on the air with
  • I bought the radio & power supply used, about a year ago & made a handful of contacts with it, maybe 4 hours of overall operation. I have the original packaging.
  • If you would like to buy only the radio or only the power supply you are welcome to contact me.
  • I have the bad habit of wanting to build “complete kits” for everything, so I really enjoyed building this shack in a box, every component is very firmly mounted to aluminum plates stacked inside a large ammo box intended for mortar shells, its not a pretty project, I only cared about practicality. It can be operated inside the box by just opening the lid of the ammo box & connecting to the BNC connectors on the front plate, or you can pull out the frame and connect directly to the back of the radio. There is a heavy rubber gasket on the lid, I didn’t drill any holes in the box so it should be waterproof but I will not be the one to test that. Selling because I fly to most places and this is big & heavy so I am thinking about downgrading to a Xiegu G-90.

  • ICOM IC-207H Complete Mobile Station. Despite its cosmetic appearance, this transceiver is in excellent working condition. The radio covers in the 144MHz/440MHz bands. It has a detachable head (which is why I bought it) so you can mount the transceiver out of sight. The radio comes with everything required for mobile installation, including detachable head connection cable, power cable, coaxial cable, mobile antenna mount, and mobile antenna. I installed this radio in my car, and it was reliable, powerful, and easy to operate. If you are looking to install a mobile VHF radio in your vehicle, but do not want to search around for all the required components yourself, look no further. The IC-207H is an excellent radio. Asking $200.00.
