WTB: Skanti R-8003 Receiver
« on: May 29, 2018, 1549 UTC »
I'm looking to purchase a Skanti R-8003.  It needs to be in excellent
cosmetic and electrical condition....willing to pay reasonable price to
obtain one of these receivers.

No scammers please....!

Have you had any luck finding one?  I've been in search of an R8000 control head for years.

I may have seen one of these at the Manassas, VA hamfest, two weeks ago.  It was the first one I have ever seen.  It hadnít sold yet when I left and it didnít seem to be getting much interest.  I bought a 75S3 from the same gentleman; I will look inside the manual to see if he wrote down his call.

I saw the same gentleman at the Berryville VA hamfest, but what he had for sale was a R-8001 receiver.  If that is of interest to you I can pass along his contact information.

You're a good man, NJQA.

You're up near the area my Grandmother's family was from before the Yankee invasion, Culpeper County.  That entire area was nothing but cows, cornfields, and chicken farms when I was a kid. I suspect it's nothing but condos and housing developments these days?

Culpeper is just South of us.  Iím in Fauquier.  Culpeper is just far enough away from DC to miss a lot of the urban blight that flows out from DC.  Fauquier is still holding on to her agricultural roots too.  The other nearby counties have succumbed to the dark side and are well underway in assimilation into the urban mindset.

As you can imagine, the noise floor out here is really low...cows and corn donít emit much RF.

Yes, thanks -- I did get that 8001 but the search continues for the elusive 8003
