For Sale: HQ-100, Test Gear, Manuals

Hammarlund HQ-100AC with clock. Nice small HF
receiver. This one is all original. The front panel
looks excellent. It has some scratches, scrapes and
scuffs around the front panel trim ring edges and on
the cabinet, but basically looks very good. I believe
this has the optional XC-455 BFO Kit Installed. With
original manual. Untested. $129

Littelfuse clear plastic, wall-mount display rack with
cardboard back. Holds 60 tiny tins of 3AG fuses in a
space about 14 inches tall by 8 inches wide. The slots
are sloped slightly downward to keep the tins from
falling out. 49 of the slots are filled with a nice
selection of fuses from 1/4 amp up to 20A, mostly
concentrated in the 1/4A to 5A range. About half the
fuse tins are Littelfuse--the rest are other brands.
Ready to mount on your wall and save a long search the
next time you need a fuse. $15 plus $8.60 priority
flat rate box mailing with tracking.

Ohmite “Little Devils” resistor cabinets--four of
them. You’ve probably seen these. They have black
plastic bodies and red plastic drawers with long
compartments in each drawer. Each compartment is
labeled and sized to hold a few resistors of one
specific  value. The cabinets stack neatly and look
pretty classy on the workbench. These four cabinets
are in nice shape with an occasional small chip here
and there. Some drawers have resistors in them, some
have capacitors and a range of miscellaneous whatever.
A few drawers are empty. About half of the drawer
labels are intact but the other half has been torn off
or taped over. But it would be simple to create new
labels on the PC in any word processor. Time to get
organized? $22

Western Electric F-1 handset. The cap over the ear
piece has a big chip out of it. Otherwise good. $6

   pages. $9
John Lenk, Understanding Electronic Schematics,
Prentice-Hall hardback with dust 
   jacket, 1981, 275 pages. This relates schematic
symbols to the physical part, the theory 
   of their operation and typical circuits they would
be found in. It’s the most thorough 
   treatment of this subject that I’ve ever seen. $9

Hardback with dust jacket,

and how to use them, including 
   storage scopes. It also has 2 good sections on

   amplifiers. But a lot of the book is related to
video testing. $8

RCA WR-50B RF Signal Generator. This is slightly
larger than an old VTVM. It covers 85-1700khz in 3
bands and 1.5 to 45Mhz in 3 more bands. It has fixed
frequency outputs at 455khz and 10.7Mhz plus a crystal
socket, presumably for the fixed frequency of your
choice. It has provisions for sweeping 455khz and
10.7Mhz, but I don’t see how the sweep width is
set--maybe it is fixed. It has internal or external
modulation, switch-selected. Output attenuation is
uncalibrated and output is not metered. But otherwise,
this is a down-and-dirty practical workbench signal
gen. Working as designed. I did not test any of the
fixed frequency output. $45
