BC939s when they turn up in flea markets are usually priced in the
$300 to $400 range.

One of the articles in ER on the BC610 that appeared over the years
said that the 610 on 160, has a poorly suppressed second harmonic if
you run the rig directly into a feedline to an antenna.  According to
the article (sorry I usually only remember what something said; not
author and issue dates) it's important to run the rig into some kind
of low pass network before the feedline on 160.   There's another
article in ER on how to make the BC939 a regular ham antenna tuner but
for what they cost, they're more like a collector's item.
