Kenwood MC-60 A, Deluxe Desk Microphone:

The Kenwood MC-60A is a communication type dynamic unidirectional
mic. It features UP-DOWN tuning. 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 on. The heavy zinc die-cast base provides extra stability.
The mic terminates to a standard round 8 pin mic plug. It can be
used on virtually any of the Kenwood rigs that use a round 8 pin
connector. Please note that the earlier MC-60 (non-"A") version
has a 4 pin mic plug and no UP-DOWN tuning.

This particular mic appears to be new, unused. It came from a SK,
so I can not verify for sure, but it certainly looks new, and of
course works like new.

This is a current model and sells for about $160. Buy this one
for only $100.

Kenwood MC-85 Deluxe Desk Microphone Parts:

The Kenwood MC-85 will take up to three mic cords,
i.e. it is capable of being used on three rigs.

Kenwood TS-700 A, 2 meter Multimode transceiver:

The Kenwood TS-700A multimode transceiver provides 2 meter
operation in FM, LSB, USB, AM and CW modes. Power output is
rated at 10 watts. It covers the entire 2 meter band.
Enhancements include RF gain, RIT, squelch, noise blanker and
44 fixed channels (11 per MHz band). Operation is from
120/220 VAC, or 13.8 VDC at 4 amps.

Noise Blanker
On-Air Indicator
AC/DC Operation

This unit looks good. It transmits in all modes, but I am
90% sure someone took a "golden screwdriver" to it.  The
power output is in the 18 to 20 watt range instead of 11
to 12 as it should be.  This indicates some one has "tweaked"
it.  The frequency that it transmits and receives on is
not the same as indicated. Basically, I think it needs a
complete, accurate alignment, and then it would be great.

With paper work and 110 V AC power cord for $150.
The DC power cord is not included.

Linear Amp Switching Cables for Kenwood Rigs:

This cable goes from a Kenwood transceiver to a linear
amplifier to switch the amp from transmit to receive.

One end has a DIN connector, as is used with most Kenwood
rigs. The other end has an RCA phono plug, as used by most
linear amplifiers.

Before using this cable, please check the switching
capabilities of your transceiver, and the requirements
of your amplifier.

Cable for switching the T/R relay. Only $15.

Cable as above, but with ALC line in addition to T/R switching.

Kenwood "Extension Feet":
This is a set of two feet that are often used on
various Kenwood rigs to raise the front by about
1/2 inch to give a rig, speaker, remote VFO, etc.
the tilt that makes it easier to read.
This is a complete set of two front feet, with the
needed hardware. $15

Other Kenwood Items, such as manuals and original boxes,
are also available.

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