For Sale. All Prices Plus Shipping.

Heathkit EK-2 training course with 3 receivers. This
was a Heathkit educational course with a companion
receiver kit--model EK-2. This is really entry-level
stuff. The receiver is a rudimentary AC-powered
superhet using miniature tubes with an octal
rectifier. It covers 3-16MC in 2 bands with a
slide-rule dial. It’s a horrible beige and green
two-tone with beige and green knobs. I don’t think it
came with a cabinet but one of these has what I
suspect was a homebrew cabinet on it. So what is here,
in addition to the course book, is 3 completed
receivers in various conditions. The best one is
excellent but the speaker grille is missing. The
middle one has the speaker grille but one knob is
missing. And the worst one is in a grungy cabinet and
has 3 wrong knobs and an extra hole in the panel. 
There is also an external speaker in a thin aluminum
slant-front cabinet that I think was supposed to go
with this. As-is. $39 for the whole deal. 

Military WWII BC-453-B command set receiver. This is
the famous Q-fiver covering 190-550KC. This one looks
like it has had all the ham mods done to it. But I
didn’t open it up to see what’s inside. It’s missing
some cabinet screws. The dynamotor connector has been
removed, though the dyno mounts are still there. It’s
a bare aluminum set but the tube cover is black
wrinkle. All the tubes are missing. As-is. $12

Thanks for looking.
