For Sale: Vintage Hammarlund HQ-129-X Receiver

I have a ham radio that was my father’s, that he probably acquired in the 1950’s, for sale.

It was owned by my father, who spent many hours in the 1950's and early 1960's talking to people all over the world. The radio does light up when turned on, but without the antenna, I couldn't get any reception. I really don't know what I'm doing, so that's probably the problem. I'd like $50 for the radio and will include a vintage microphone on a stand for $75. I'm located in Sacramento, near the Executive Airport.

For Sale: Palstar R30c Receiver

Original owner, excellent condition, lightly used & all functions work. Comes with 12 Volt power cord & owner's manual. This radio has the optional Collins filter installed. The R-30 is renowned as a MW DX receiver. Only nit is the built in speaker is not great. Much better sound using an outboard speaker or headphones. This is common with these radios.

Asking $375. Tony - N6DXX, Sacramento. 916-427-6749

Victron Inverter & Free Aluminum Tubing and Traps

  1. Various lengths of aluminum pipe from elements on my Hy-Gain EXP-14 tri-band antenna. Also traps that were never used since I added the 30/40 mtr option. The aluminum and traps are all freebies.
  2. A 500 Watt 12V to 120V pure sine wave inverter from Victron. This was never used, it was too small, replaced with a 2000 watt model. I paid $172 this year

Wanted: CB Radios

Looking for older 23 and 40 channel “chicken band” radios that are either broken or not operating correctly. I’m embarking on learning radio trouble shooting and repair and these 11 meter radios are the best platforms to start on. Looking for earlier models, any make. If you have one or more sitting in a box, getting dusty on a shelf or just plain taking up space that you would like to reclaim, I’d be happy to take it off your hands.

Thanks and 73, Andy (916) 742-9810
