  • Complete “go box“, includes the following:
    • FT-991 (not A)
    • External Analog HF SWR/Power Meter
    • External Analog VHF/UFH SWR/Power Meter
    • MFJ 1709B-SDR TX switch
    • SDR Play RSP1A

    • AC Power Distribution strip

    • DMTF Mic MH-36
    • RT-Systems Programming Software
    • Original FT-991 box and manual
    • 100’ of LM400 Coax

This “go box” is heavy, weighing 25kg, you can see from the video that the light covers on the AC power distribution box are broken. If you were to build this all out now, would be well over $3000 to do so.

Reason for selling: Divorcing. I live in Whitecourt, AB, but am willing to drive a few hours to meet up with someone. Please see YouTube videos showing it all working.

  • W6LVP Receive Loop.
    • Great receive loop. Excellent at nulling out noise from point sources. Here is a video that shows the 27dB null.
    • Also is a great diversity antenna. See demo compared to 43′ vertical on 80m. Great for more pleasant SSB reception on the low bands.
    • Full antenna info.
    • Comes with power supply for pre-amp. Selling because I got DXCC on 80m & don’t need extra antennas on the roof in my suburban location. Was on roof for one year.

Price: $190.00 CDN + shipping. Can quote shipping from Coquitlam, BC.

  • 10m rig, HTX-10, HTX-100. Casually seeking a 10m radio for a VHF project. Something like an HTX-10, HTX-100 or of that ilk please. Must have SSB. FM would be nice, esp. if it has offset capability, however that’s secondary. Would appreciate it coming from a non-smoking home. Desirous that it be yours or that you know its history, and that it not be (yet) modified or have had an encounter with a “Magic Screwdriver.” Willing to spend ~ $70. Please feel free to talk about that, however I’m not paying for good times someone has had using it, nor what it “once cost” — solely for a working radio in very good to good condition. Thanks.

  • 5 element heavy duty Yagi Antenna for 2 meters. Boom length from reflector to last director is 70 inches. Has about an 8 extension at the reflector end for end mount. The boom is 1 3/10 inches in diameter & all elements are 3/4 inches. The attachments of the elements to the boom are castings with stainless u bolts. This is a relatively new antenna. The antenna would be great for snow & ice locations. Asking $70.00. I looked in DX Engineering & similar antennas were going for $149 to $199 BUT they are now heavy duty. P/U in Eugene, Oregon or willing to drive up 50 miles for delivery. If shipping is required will need to talk to you about it.
