  • Antenna building / re-building materials …
  • I have a VERY LARGE 40+ year collection of ‘manly’ antenna materials:
    *  aluminium tubing for yagi elements & pipe for booms/masts [up to ~3″ Dia.]
    *  ‘unobtainium’ element-to-boom, boom-to-mast & other antenna fittings
    *  UHF/VHF/HF yagi, vertical, delta, quad & parabolic antennas ready for re-building
  • ALL open to offers — @ VERY low prices [some even FREE] — surplus to my needs….
  • But don’t delay, because after ‘triage’ 1/3 is going to the recyclers!
  • Include your phone no. for quicker reply.

  • Two metre mobile 5/8 wavelength antenna with mag mount. Very good condition. $40.00.
  • A few dozen air spaced variable capacitors to dispose of at a fair at reasonable price. Receiving as well as transmitting types, single gang, double gang, triple gang. Let me know if you need something or you can come by the QTH & have a look, or I could bring them to a WARA breakfast. In a couple of weeks time I’ll offer them on Hamshack.ca and what doesn’t sell will go to landfill.


  • I use a non-resonant antenna system fed with balanced line. I need relays to switch the line to several different L networks. Relays to have ceramic insulation & wide contact spacing for high RF voltage. Single pole single throw, single pole double throw, double pole double throw; that sort of thing. Operating voltage to be DC only up to 28V. Let me know what you have.

  • JRC (Japan Radio Co., Ltd – NRD 535, serial #BR 39172). My Dad is looking to sell his JRC. This model was introduced in 1986 & I believe purchased new not too long after. It includes the NVA-88 speaker.
  • It is in excellent condition & must be seen to fully appreciate. I am reaching out to see if there is interest.
  • I do not have an antenna to trial it but would be willing to bring it to someone if they are in the Victoria area. I can provide pictures via email.
  • Everything is meticulously preserved in its original packaging & has been stored in a clean dry smoke free home since 1996.
