Antenna Tuner, and other HF Antenna related
items For Sale:

MFJ 949 C HF Antenna Tuner / Wattmeter / Dummy Load:

This HF antenna tuner is rated by MFJ to handle 300 Watts,
although I really feel the standard 100 Watt rig is pretty
much the limit. It has an SWR bridge built in, along with
a cross needle wattmeter that reads 300 W and 30 W full
scale. This means it will read forward power, reverse
power, and SWR simultaneously.

It also will handle two coax antennas, which can be used
direct, or thru the tuner. A balun is included, as is a
separate antenna switch position for use with open wire
line. It has an internal dummy load that MFJ rates at
300 Watts, but again, 100 W is the practical limit.
This one measure 51 ohms, so it could not be much more

This particular unit works fine, and looks good. I can
only find a very small scratch on the bottom that is not
normally visible. With paper work for $90.

HF and VHF SWR Bridges:

All cover from 3 thru 150 MHz and have SO-239
connectors in and out.

Royce 2-100 SWR Bridge / Field Strength Meter
This one works fine, and looks extremely nice. No scratches,
but it does have a previous owner's name on it.
In its original box with original instructions. $20

Heath AM-2 SWR Bridge
Matches the DX-40, although it can be used with any HF
or VHF transmitter. About 8 inches wide and 4.5 inches
high, with the meter in the middle, and a gray colored
knob at each side near the bottom.
This particular unit works fine and is in very good shape.
Paper work is included for $22.

"Window Line" 450 ohm transmission line:

This is similar to "open wire" transmission line,
but has some plastic insulation on it instead of
being open, so it is protected more. The openings
look like windows, hence the name.

I have two lengths available. Both are new, never used.
One is 50 feet long, and is $20.
The other is 100 feet long and is $35.

Balun / Antenna Center Insulators:

All baluns are 1:1 ratio, and handle full legal power.

Unadilla W2AU "Big Signal" Balun
Use this as a center insulator for a dipole, or on a beam.
Built in lightning arrestor.
This one is new, still in its original box, with paper work. $20

HyGain BN-86 Balun
The case of the BN-86 is constructed so that one can use
it to hang a dipole or inverted V, or a U-bolt can be added
to attach it to the boom of an HF beam antenna.
This particular balun works fine, but does show slight physical
use. It includes the paper work for $40.

VanGorden "HiQ" Balun
The Van Gorden HI-Q balun is designed to handle full legal
power with a low standing wave radio (SWR). It includes a
hanger for a dipole. Some rust on screw eyes. $10

W2AU ANsulator
The Unadilla W2AU ANsulator™ Antenna Center Insulator is handy
for many types of antennas. It features a top eye-bolt for
support (if needed). There are strong eye bolts and spade
lugs on either side for the antenna wire.
It looks to be new. $12

VanGorden "Hi Q" Antenna Center Insulator
No balun included in this one, but it is designed to act as the
center insulator for a dipole or inverted V antenna, similar to
the W2AU Ansulator above.  This one appears to be unused. $12

B & W 591 Coax Switch:
This switch is designed to switch an auxiliary piece of
equipment in and out (For example, bypass a linear
amplifier, transverter, preamp, etc.).  It is round and
has four SO-239 connectors coming out the back of it.
With paper work for $35.

Hustler HF Mobile Antennas:

All work 100% and are in good condition.

Hustler 54 inch mobile masts:
MO-1 (folds about 14 inches above ball) $22
MO-2 (folds about 27 inches above ball)
..... NEW, still sealed in the package, $30

"Super" Hustler resonators (high power version):
40 meter RM-40 S, $25

Coax connectors and adapters:

Prices are per connector. Several of each are available.
Most are unused.

SPECIAL: Buy 5 and take 10% off. Buy 10 or more and take 20% off.

Amphenol UG-176 reducing adapters for PL-259 connectors to
use with RG-8 X or RG-59.
Still sealed in the package. $1
No longer sealed in package.  50 cents

UHF double female "Barrel connector" $3

UHF "Bulkhead Connector" - Double female, as above, but for
mounting thru a window, siding, etc. about 2 inches long $6

UHF "T" connector with two female (SO-239) and one male
(PL-259) connection $5

BNC male to UHF female $5

UHF Male to BNC female $5

BNC male for coax cables
standard type $2
crimp on type $3

Chassis mount BNC female $3

BNC "T", two female and one male $3

I also have many other accessories available such as many
different types of microphones, HTs, HF, VHF and UHF rigs, HF
and VHF/UHF antennas, etc.
Just too many to list here. Please e-mail your requests.

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
