$75 Used / not working 40w GaN transmitter
« on: September 26, 2019, 1834 UTC »
I've got a venerable Stretchyman 40w GaN transmitter for sale.  It worked great on the upper 80m ham band to make contacts where I never used it for pirate purposes. 

Its broken, it doesn't transmit.  It made popping noises when I plugged in my AC to DC 24v power supply while the unit was on. I  should have plugged it in with the the power supply and the transmitter off,
then turned on the power supply,
and then turned on the transmitter. 
Stretchy offered for me to send it back for repairs but if somebody will buy it as is, its more convenient for me.

Comes with the frequency programmer and some files for a few frequencies.

PM me if you want to do paypal.  Cost around $300 new. 
Sell for $75 with shipping in the continental US.

So it's tuned for 3.9 MHz or so?
Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...
