From my personal collection

The equipment offered for sale below is from my personal collection. These items are not available in quantity, usually I have only one of that item to offer.   I have primarily Kenwood hybrid related equipment, but I have also collected hundreds of items from Collins, Heathkit, Bird, Shure, Astatic, Atlas, Swan, and many other manufacturers from Ham Radio's"golden era." I will offer new equipment as time permits, as I go over every piece of gear one-by-one and make sure it is better than described. My XYL thanks you in advance for freeing up some space in our house!

I provide a rating system that should help you to gauge the condition of each item.  I try to be very accurate, as I don't want to hear back that a piece of my stuff was not up to your standards!

You can return any item for any reason for 7 days after receipt. You don't even have to give a reason. If you don't like it, simply return it. You will receive a 100% refund, all you pay is shipping.
(There are no handling fees, EVER!).

Let's keep it simple - I have a great reputation, and I'd like to keep it that way. You want great equipment, I want you to have great equipment also! Period.

The Fine Print: (1) If you return something, you have to return exactly what you received - Packed the way it was shipped, with insurance equal to the purchase price. (2) Your warranty excludes damage caused by you, either physical or electrical - I warranty things that I'm responsible for, only! (of course!)
