Well Pat, money speaks.
Wonder what my 430S with the 10 Hz., AM filter 500 Hz CW filter, FM board, 
AT 250 tuner, power supply, 150 KHz receiver mod and most of the updates 
done would bring?  Mine isn't as pretty, it has been used mobile and I have 
the palm mic, MC 50 desk mic, mobile bracket and power cord plus the data 
cable between the AT 250 and radio, original owners manual, copy of the 
service manual, and brochure.  It all works too.

I can't believe it will bring much, but we will see.
