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

For Sale or Swap: Icom HF Rig and two Kenwood TM-742s

I have quite a few radios that I’d like to sell or swap for something else. I have been inactive for a few years. Some of the gears that I have are just collecting dust.

I have:

  • ICOM HF rig. It was working when I used it last soooo many years ago.
  • A huge power supply that is still working.
  • I have two Kenwood TM-742s. One has 2M & 440, and the other has 2M, 440 and 1.2.
Kenwood TM-742
TM-742 has connection problem. I just don’t have the time to fix it. It has nothing to do with the transceiver. It is a minor components that connect the power to the unit (internal). I would love to trade one of these radio for the service to fix them to work. I’m pretty sure it’s not that hard if you have the knowledge and equipment. I do have schematic.
I would love to trade any of those three items for a mobile VHF/ UHF with 2M, 440 & 1.2 GHz which has a remote head.

I’m sorry that I don’t have the model for the ICOM HF rig model. I did use it quite a bit when I was active. I can make a deal on this HF rig since I don’t use it any more.

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
