For Sale

Military WWII Gray RBB receiver with Gray power supply. No cables. Both
have a few scratches but are very nice indeed. Might be missing some
tubes. $500

> Drake R4C/T4XC Station with MN-4 and AC-4. Works but needs a going
through to be brought up to snuff. $400
GP-7/ARB pair. Both units are reworked and mostly ready to put on the
air. Both units are accessorized out the wazoo with mounts, tuning
units, control boxes and all. The ARB works well (on the original
dynamotor) but the wiring to the control boxes has not been done. The
ARB has some rare accessories including the shock mount, the goofy ZB-3
homing adapter, and an empty spares chest. The ZB-3 is brand new with
the original spares box, etc. The GP-7 has been ham modified to run on
an external power supply that is only partially built. You could finish
the supply or the GP-7 will run from any regular TX supply. The GP-7
includes the mounting rails, all the useful tuning units with steel
storage boxes, etc.. I'd like $1000 for this gorgeous WWII rig. All
manuals included. Ask for pictures. Will separate.

National NC-101X with matching speaker. Really, really nice looking. But
speaker has wrong grille cloth. Hasn't been powered up in years. Needs
restoration but is surely worth it. PW dial and tuning eye--best of all
possible worlds. $350

Homebrew push-pull 809 amplifier driven by an 809 with plug-in coils. No
power supply but has filament TF. Poor construction practices. Coils
have no mechanical support. Built on an inverted metal filing shelf.
With 809s. From the estate of 8AIG. $50

Homebrew transmitter with 6L6 oscillator driving T-55 final. Just a
chassis with the parts on it and Atwater-Kent knobs. This probably never
ran because it has poor construction practices. Still, it looks cool and
could easily be brought to life. With a spare T-55. $50

> Military Coast Guard RC-120 HF receiver. This is an odd NC-100A
variant built by National with a tuning eye (more specifically, this was
the ONLY National NC-100A design (sliding coils with pointer-dial) that
had a tuning eye). Missing tags and was missing tuning eye parts. I
replaced the tuning eye bezel and mount with non-original units. Very
rare-may be the only one left alive. Unrestored but in nice original
shape. Missing bottom cover. Coast-guard gray. $150
> Homebrew Lew McCoy Ultimate Transmatch with 3 plug-in coils, original
construction article. Nice. No cabinet. Built just like the article. $35
> B&W 210 Audio Oscillator. Works and looks great. This is a
1962-vintage test bench audio oscillator covering 10cps-100kcps with
good distortion characteristics, variable output to 150mw, 600 ohm bal
or unbal output, etc. This is a cosmetic match for B&W 410 distortion
analyzer below. Just really beautiful cosmetic condition. Working as
designed. With original manual. Tubes line-up is 1-6AU6, 1-6CG7. $50
> B&W 410 Distortion Analyzer. Looks Great--almost near mint. This is a
workbench audio distortion analyzer and AC voltmeter. Matches B&W 210
audio oscillator above. Seems to be working as designed but I did not
really test it thoroughly. With original manual. tube line-up is -12AX7,
1-12AU7, 1-0A2, 1-6X4, 2-6U8. $50
Thanks for looking.
