FOR SALE: The Holidaze Ten Buck List (mostly..). All untested and AS-IS unless stated otherwise.

E. F. Johnson TN750 neutralizing capacitors (pair).  These are huge, 750 watt neutralizing caps. They stand 10 inches tall and are about 5 inches wide at their biggest point. These are the kind that have a small aluminum cylinder going down on a long threaded bolt into a larger aluminum cylinder. They are in excellent original condition with some light surface corrosion on the steel mounting parts. They may be unused but I can't tell for sure. $80 for the pair.

Simpson 269-B 100,000 ohms per volt VOM. Small chip out of case. No handle. No probes. Has beat up original leather case. Movement seems to be good. Looks good. As-is. $10

Homebrew command set receiver power supply with good filtering. Nicely built but no cabinet. As-is. $10

Homebrew power supply for the LM frequency meter. One small chassis. No cabinet. $10

Precision Series 85 20K ohms per volt VOM with original leather case in beautiful, almost like new  cosmetic condition. But meter movement has literally fallen apart. No probes. $10

Military, 1954-vintage GRA-14 control box set. The GRA-14 as a typical post-ware BC-610/R-388 radio truck setup for Teletype and phone. These control boxes connect between the phones, key, teletype machines and BC-614 speech amp. This et of 3 includes 2 C-1306 control boxes and one C-1307. They are all original and probably unused. Dirty with paint scratches. Heavy steel. $10/all 3

Military Multimeter ME-70B/PSM-6A. Very marked-up steel case, with lid, handle and probes. Looks good inside. Untested but probably working if it had batteries. $10

Waterman OCA-11A "Industrial Scope". Very small, almost hand-held 2 inch scope with probes. Case has probably been repainted. Untested. As-is. $10

Knife switches. 4 small, plastic-base DPDT type. 3 black that match and 1 brown that doesn't. $5/all 4

Ameco VHF Balun Model VB-1 matches 50-75 ohm coax to 300 ohm twin lead. Probably low power handling because it is small. $5

Pace 5403A PWR/SWR meter. Looks like up to 100 watts. One slide switch is broken and needs replaced. $10

Prime M131 big green Japanese bullet crystal microphone. $15

Knight P-2 SWR/PWR meter with remote coupler. Very dirty. $10

Tektronix 465 oscilloscope accessory bag. This is the heavy vinyl bag with a metal back that mounts on the top of the scope to hold the accessories. This one has a Tek 465 operator's manual, ground glass screen, spare fuses and  collapsible viewing hood. Nice shape. No probes. $10

Hoyt 0-15 DC Amperes bakelite-cased meter with binding posts for connections, in steel carry case with leads. Mirrored scale. Seems to be in nice shape. $8

Military SCR-274N command set transmitter BC-458A made by Western Electric. Covers 5.3-7mc. Bare aluminum is dirty but should clean up well. Has top tube cover and bottom cover. Has all tubes and the crystal except one 1625 is missing. Front panel is drilled full of holes above the roller inductor window. The cover is missing from the roller inductor window but the inductor and follower are still there. The rear connector is present but it has been soldered to.  I don't see this set as a good restoration project but probably a good parts donor. $13

Homebrew power supply for one command set transmitter. This looks small to me. It has one 5Y3 rectifier and one 0D3 regulator. The HV transformer is made by Haldorson. On a small steel chassis with no panel or controls. $6

Multi-Elmac power supplies. I have two of these and I can't tell which Elmac rig they are supposed to be used with, maybe the AF-54. They have 2 vibrators in sockets and everything else is in a cage on the chassis. One of these has several unoriginal holes and the vibrators and fuses are missing. The other one looks to be complete with vibrators and fuses and all original. No tag or other useful info. Are these 6V? 12V? 125VAC? I have no idea. $20/both

Multi-Elmac AF-67 transmitter. This one has the older style knobs and shows its age. The top cover is drilled into swiss cheese. But the front panel is original and will probably clean up well. I did not look inside and I know nothing about the internal condition of this set. $35

Simpson 383A Capohmmeter. Direct-reading capacitance meter preferred by many over the Sprague TO-line. This one needs a claean up and probably some restoration. With manual copy but no test leads (banana plug style required). $15

Eico 435 3-inch oscilloscope. Small, bench servicing scope with probably no more than 100Khz bandwidth. Exceptionally clean front panel and very clean case. With all 3 probes: Direct, low capacity and demodulator. But 2 of the probes are missing their banana plugs. The scope gets a trace but has no horizontal sweep. Well worth restoring. $15

2 Eldico HF low-pass filters. Big and ugly. SO-239 in and out. $15/both

Turner 99 dynamic microphone. With yoke. Has been painted gloss black and paint is falling off. $10

3-Count em!-3 code practice oscillators. Bud CPO-155T (transistorized). Runs on 2 AA cells. Really old ICA "Signa-Tone" in a gray wrinkle painted steel, slant-front meter-style case. Runs on 115VAC and uses one octal tube which is missing). Finally, there is one 1966-vintage Eico EC-1000 code oscillator kit built into a slant-front meter case with a speaker (no headphone jack). This one is solid state and uses a 9V battery. It comes with the original manual.  $15/all 3

End of list.
Thanks for looking.
