HF Transceivers (or HF plus 6 m and 2 m and 440 MHz)
and related items

Yaesu FT-890 HF Transceivers:

The Yaesu FT-890 transmits 160 to 10 meters, while the
general coverage receiver tunes from 100 kHz to 30 MHz.
Power output is 100 watts in CW, SSB, FM and 25 watts AM.
It features IF Shift, IF Notch and 16-bit main CPU, and
needs 13.8 VDC at 20 Amps. It is relatively small.
About 9" x 4" x 10".

160-10 meters
IF Notch
IF Shift
Dual VFOs
Noise Blanker
Speech Compressor

I have two units available. Both transmit and receive
great and look good, with a few minor scratches.
Both have narrow CW and AM filters, and include
hand mic, manual, and power cord.

The first unit does not have the optional antenna tuner.
It has a minor problem in that the power switch is
always on. Use the switch on your power supply, and
all is fine. $375

The second does have the optional automatic antenna
tuner. All works fine. $500

Icom IC-706 Mk II G, 160 m to 440 MHz transceiver:

The 706 Series is one of the most popular transceivers in
amateur radio history. The IC-706 Mark II G adds many new
features and capabilities not found in the previous versions.
The "G" is an all-mode transceiver providing 100 watts on
HF/6 m, 50 watts on 2 m, and 20 watts on 440 MHz. It receives
from 30 KHz to 199 MHz and 400 to 470 MHz. It has a removable
front panel that allows control of all features. The UT-106 DSP
module is standard. One or two optional filters may be added.

.03-199, 400-470 MHz Receive
Alpha memories
IF Shift
S/RF Meter
100 Watts HF+6M, 50 Watts 2M, 20 Watts 440
100 Memories
All band Multimode
Removable head
Mini Spectrum Scope
Electronic Keyer

This particular unit includes hand microphone,
power cord, and manual in its original box.
All looks and works great.

Only $625.

Mounting Brackets:

This is an odd mounting bracket that is not often found
in ham circles.  It can attach to a dash and swivel to
most any direction.  It has a screw to take "head mounts"
such as the MB-63 for the IC-706.  Basically it is an
additional way to mount a remote head.  It is chrome
plated, and really looks great.  $40

Standard mobile mounting bracket for the IC-706, AT-180,
IC-7000, IC-7100, and others.
Still in its original box, complete with all hardware. $25

Bracket to mount the control head of the IC-706 and
maybe others.
Still in its original box, complete with all hardware. $25
As above, but not in original box.  $20

MFJ 949 E, HF Antenna Tuner:

The MFJ-949 E gives you an antenna tuner that covers
everything from 1.8 - 30 MHz, plus you get an antenna
switch and a 4:1 balun! Even a dummy load is built in.
It is rated at 300 Watts, but I would hold it to about
100 W.

It has a cross needle meter that displays forward power,
reflected power, and SWR simultaneously, with 30 or 300
watts full scale. The 8 position antenna switch lets you
select 2 coax lines, random wire /balanced line or dummy
load.  It also has a switch for peak or average power

It has a 12 position air wound inductor, 4:1 balun, and
1000 Volt capacitors.

This particular unit works fine. Cosmetically it has no
dents or dings, and looks good. The meter lamp works
fine. The front panel is the new multicolored vinyl
(Lexan??) that has no defects.

These sell new in the $160 to $190 range.  This one is
very close to new, with paper work for only $100.

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.

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.

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
