Kenwood TM G-707 A Dual Band Transceiver:

The TM-G 707 has an extra-large control panel with the welcoming
glow of its amber-colored LCD. The TM-G 707 is extraordinarily
user-friendly, which is an important consideration for a mobile
rig. This mobile transceiver provides 50 (50/10/5W) watts on 2
meters and 35 (35/10/5W) watts on 440 MHz. The TM-G707A offers
features such as  memory name function (7 character), S-meter
squelch, time-out timer, tone encode/decode, dimmer, and auto
power-off. Non-simultaneous cross-band repeater access is
supported. A 6 pin mini DIN connector for 1200/9600 bps packet
and other digital modes is provided.

Receive coverage is 118-174 and 410-524 MHz F3E (FM).
Transmit range is 144-148 and 430-450 MHz F3E (FM).
Size is 5.5 x 1.7 x 7.4 inches. It requires 13.8 VDC at 11 amps.

Features include:
     180 Alpha Memories
     Big Display
     DTMF Hand Mic.
     Auto Repeater Offset
     Guide Function
     Time Out Timer
     Visual Scan
     Priority Scan
     Auto Simplex Checker
     DTSS Selective Call
     PL Decode/Encode
     Packet 1200/9600 DIN plug
     Hi/Med/Lo RF Out

This particular unit is still in its original box.  It functions
100%, and looks the same.  As best I can tell, all of the little
packages of screws, fuses, etc. are included.  $250

Kenwood TS-711, multimode 2 meter transceiver:

This unit is an FM, SSB, and CW transceiver for 2 meters. It
has 40 memory channels, and up to 25 Watts of output power,
which is continuously variable (no Hi or Low switch, but a
front panel control to continuously vary power). Of course
it will scan, and do the things one expects in a 2 meter rig.
It has a GASFET in the front end for one of the best receivers
I have ever used. The 120 V AC power supply as well as 13 V DC,
is built in. The case looks very similar to a TS-440 or TS-450
HF rig.

This particular unit is very nice. I do not find any scratches,
but it does show slight use. It has the optional TU-5 subaudible
tone PL encoder in it, so it can be used with modern repeaters.
Power cord and mic are included, with paper work, for $425.

Kenwood TH-78 A Dual Band HT:

The Kenwood TH-78A is a sophisticated dual-band HT. It has
built in tone and paging functions, alphanumeric memory and
message paging. Additionally it has dual-frequency receive
capability (including VHF+VHF and UHF+UHF). There are 50
memory channels. The operator can choose from 8 different
scan types. DTSS allows DTMF access to the transceiver.

The receive range is 118-173.995 and 438-449.995 MHz.
It has three RF output levels of about 5.0/0.5/0.02 watts.

Features include:
    Two Line LCD Display
    50 Memories
    Alphanumeric Memory
    Message Paging
    Cross Band Operation
    Backlit Keypad
    Multi Scan Function

This one works fine, and looks fine. It includes the HT,
rubber duck antenna, wall charger, and paper work.
A PB-13 standard battery is included, that holds its charge
fine. Also included are two PB-17 heavy duty packs that are
in bad condition. $135

Kenwood MC-60 A Deluxe Desk Microphone:

The Kenwood MC-60A has been a popular desk mic among
Kenwood owners for many years. It has a communication
type dynamic unidirectional moving coil type mic element
and features UP-DOWN tuning (on compatible Kenwood
transceivers) plus a built-in pre-amp. There is a
switch for PTT (push to talk) and also a lock feature.
The mic impedance may be set for 50K ohms or 500 ohms.
The frequency response is 150 Hz to 10 kHz (-6dB) with
the Preamp off and 200 Hz to 7 kHz (-6 dB) with the Preamp

The heavy zinc die-cast base provides extra stability. The
mic terminates to a standard 8 pin mic plug. The preamp
requires two AA cells which are mounted through the bottom
of the base. Please note that the earlier MC-60 (non-"A")
version featured a 4 pin mic plug and did not have UP-DOWN

This one works 100% and looks very close to new.

With paper work for $100.

Hand Microphone with round 8 pin plug for Kenwood, Alinco, etc.

This hand mic works great on most Kenwood rigs with the
round 8 pin connector, such as the TS-430, TS-440, TM-241,
TM-2530, TW-4000, and others, including Alinco and ADI.
It says "Electret Condenser Mic" on the back, and
"Kenwood" on the front, with no model number.

Basically, this mic functions like an MC-43, with a couple
more features. It has the mic and PTT switch; it also has
up/down switches on the top. There are four "extra" buttons
labeled Call, VFO, MR, and PF. What these four buttons do
depends on the rig. There is also a "Lock" switch on the back.

Regardless if you use the four extra buttons or not, you
still have a mic that works like an MC-43.

This mic works fine, and looks like new. I am guessing it
came with a rig, and was immediately put in the drawer,
and never used. $30
