That's what I go for. No interest in DX-100s, NC300s, Viking Valiants,
GK-500s, "ham radio quality" modulation transformers or "vintage SSB" junk.
Just oddball unobtanium items I have been on lookout for years, that
occasionally shows up, like EF Johnson coil clips, Bud metal name plates,
plug-in coil hardware and other little esoteric stiff. This last time, I
did pick up a 75A4. It was very clean and only $300, but didn't work and
the guy said he couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I got it
running but it still needs work. If I can get it up to par I might use it
for my main receiver. I might take home a quality piece of pre-WWII gear in
reasonable condx, or a bargain priced broadcast modulation transformer or
reactor, but most of the "goodies" I see now I already have, and need the
room more than I need additional copies.
