Looks like it had a complete meltdown.

That can't be good for sales...

My copy arrived today - thanks, Andy! Looks like a really good read for a rainy weekend.

For Sale / Wanted / 2 radios For Sale - prices reduced
« on: November 18, 2018, 2021 UTC »
Gotta make some room in the shack, so I have available the following:


First: Icom 756Pro HF+6m xcvr with the color bandscope.   Asking: $700 shipped (OBO).

Full Disclosure: The internal ATU never worked (bought it that way) so an external tuner is suggested. No mic (takes any Icom eight-pin round connector) or box, but does come with full-length DC power cord and both Op and Svc manuals in binders.

LDG Z-100Plus autotuner that works great with the Pro with instruction sheets and box: $100 shipped. Or buy the pair for $750.

Cash, check, or Postal MO; sorry, no PayPal.

Second: Icom 718 10-160m xcvr with DSP and CR-338 high-stability TXCO.   Asking $375 shipped (OBO)

Very good entry-level rig. Add a narrow SSB filter and you're good to go for digital modes. No internal ATU, no FM, no 6m. Was professionally opened for 60m activity. Comes with non-original HM-12 hand mic, full length DC power cord, and both Op and Svc manuals in binders. No box.

LDG IT-100 autotuner works well the the 718 with instruction sheets and box: $100 shipped.   Or buy both for $450.

Cash, check, or Postal MO; sorry, no PayPal.

Thanks for reading and 73, John

I've got a PT-2 in decent condition (considering age) in the front room closet. It works but my Pro3 has a much lower noise floor. Make offer if you can use it.

I took a look in my parts bin hoping I had some MV2113 or MV2114s. What I do have is a pair of MV2109s and a pair of MV2115s. If either of those will work for you, let me know and I'll be happy to send 'em to ya.

OTOH, I highly doubt that these are your problem.

General Radio Discussion / Re: Sad news regarding Captain Eddy

This is terrible news; JC has been involved in the Free Radio scene for a long time. He founded what was then the FRN BBS, and later migrated it to the internet.

I met John several times (including at the Fest) and always enjoyed talking to him. He certainly deserves a better fate than this.

You are in my thoughts, John. jta
