  • Multicouplers. Sinclair Rez-Lok C-2034 Series. Some currently tuned just above and others just below the 2m Band. If you need/want multicouplers, you know Sinclair’s superior construction, performance & value…. Only asking 1/4 price new.

  • Harris RF-104 Power Amplifier in a ~6′ rack cabinet. Similar/successor to the RF-103. No tube or chimney [but a 4-1000 — which are cheap like borscht — will work]. Otherwise ~all there. Offers.
  • Auto-Transformers [aka ~Variacs]. Ranging from small [under 10 Amps for significantly less than $100.00]; through a medium-sized near-new motorized Powerstat rated at 10 Amps [for $200.00] to a 3-Gang near-new motorized General Radio W20 expertly RFE [20 Amps x 3 for only $500.00]. The latter is very similar to [and do note the price].


  • Dead HAM-type ‘Bell’ rotators & controllers of any vintage — for free, a cup of coffee+doughnut, or cheap — for parts…. Save them from the landfill/ scrapyard — & make the XYL happy by getting rid of the rusting eyesore in the basement or garage, especially before Xmas.
