Six meter items For Sale:
FM Transceiver, mobile antenna, Communications Speakers,
Low Pass TVI Filter, etc.

Midland 6 meter FM Transceiver:

The Midland 70-056 C is a 100 watt mobile 6 meter FM transceiver.
It is a heavy duty commercial unit that has been converted for ham
usage. It has 80 channels which have been loaded with just about
every simplex and repeater that one can think of.

This unit consists of a very heavy duty unit with mounts in the
truck, under the seat, etc.  There is a remote "head" where the
mic plugs in, and which selects volume, squelch, scan, channel,
etc., plus an external speaker.  The power cord is very heavy
duty, since it requires up to 25 amps at 13 V DC.

Also included is the service manual, which is really an
operating/service manual combined, and which looks like it is
new. The unit works fine, with great audio, and looks fine also.

Only $90.

Six meter "Hamstick" mobile antenna

This is a Lakeview Model 9106, true Hamstick mobile antenna.

It has a standard 3/8 inch 24 thread for mounting, and is about
4 feet long, so it could be used with a 3/8 -24 mag mount, if
It is rated to handle 600 watts PEP.

This one works fine, looks close to new, and includes paper work
(cutting instructions) for $20.

Radio Shack 21-541 Powered Communications Speaker:

This speaker is a bit unique. It is a communications speaker,
but it is also powered, much like computer speakers.

Specs say the frequency response is 300 to 3000 Hz, which is
ideal for communications. It is rated to have 8 watts output,
which means you could hear it in over most any noisy environment,
such as high noise mobile installations. It needs 13 V DC at up
to 1.5 amps, although current is very low if the volume is low.

This unit has a nice gimble mounting bracket, making it great for
mobile use.

This unit works fine and looks close to new. It even includes a
single page of paper work, as if that is needed.
Only $22.

Other Communications Speakers:

Realistic 21-549 A
This speaker is about 4 inches square and about 2 inches deep. It

It is black in color, looks great, and sounds great. $12
