  • Kenwood TS-820s with VFO-820 but no interconnect cable, I can show you how to make one. D-104 standard black base & head chrome grip. Manual. Works FB. $300.00.
  • Mosley TA-53M antenna. The antenna has three active elements on 10,12,15,17, 20 & a rotatable dipole on 40 meters. This antenna was rebuilt by me last year & meets Mosley’s commercial military standards specifications. It has a schedule 40, 14′ boom with heavy duty elements.
    • My primary focus being 20 & 40 meters, I would be willing to swap/trade for a 3 element 20 meter yagi & a 2 element 40 meter yagi. This is a heavy antenna weighing in at about 70lbs.
    • New from Mosley the antenna is almost $3k.
  • $1000.00 with 100 feet of RG-213


  • Broken Mosley TA-33JR. Just need some of the traps or one full element & several traps from a TA-33JR.

  • Power Supply Astron RS-50M, very good, has new meters $275.00. The original Astron V & A meters were defective so they were replaced with after market ones. They work perfectly.
  • Antenna Tuner MFJ 989C, good condition $150.00, legal power manual tuner. Not the greatest tuner, but works very well if your antennas are near resonant. Worked very well for me.
  • Hand Held Mic Heil Gold Elite, excellent $120.00, great microphone. Includes a cable for Yeasu radios. Cable got abraded somehow and needs a little simple repair.
  • Microphone Apex435, excellent $50.00. This is a very nice entry level condenser mic & must be used with pro audio equipment & phantom power.
  • Impedance matching box W2IHY Ibox, excellent $50.00, like new, please look up W2IHY website to know what this is for.
  • Prefer local pick up. Prices are in CAD funds and I can send photos if you are truly interested.
