Bob,

    The KW-1 sold for $3850 in 1952, so to me a cherried out and converted
20V3 for $3000 in 2006 does not seem unreasonable. See the link below:

I have to say though that it bothers me a lot when I see sarcasm, and angry
responses being exchanged on this reflector. Do we really have to go there?

Regards,
Jim Candela

Oh, I remember you.  You're the guy that wanted the instruction book on how
to convert a 20V-3 and nobody would give it to you.

>>I am selling my 20V-3 Collins broadcast transmitter. It has been modified
