It Works, Depending on What the Meaning of ‘Work’ Is…

For Sale is the Yaesu FT-101E Transceiver.  This radio is very good cosmetically.  It has very little wear, scuffs or dings.  I purchased the radio and decided to replace the finals.  Output was a solid 150 watts that I used on 40 meters for a few weeks.  I bagged the radio and placed it in my storage room for the last 6 months.  Bringing it out I get very little transmit power out of it.  

101e

I know that it needs a good cleaning on contacts and that may make it work.  The receiver seems to work fine when I move the mode selector back and forth.  Signal strength is good, so this leads me to believe that contact cleaner is needed.  It includes the power cord, manual and the YD-148 desk mike wired for the radio.  This will not be a DOA radio, but I will not guarantee it to do more than this post.   You are buying with no warranty or returns, please bid accordingly and I think you will find that you have bought a good radio.  Selling United States Only!

“For your consideration is Swans’s last HF transceiver the Cubic Astro 103.

The rigs sells with no associated equipment.  Shipping in the lower 48 states.  Do your research and happy bidding .”

Vintage Yaesu 620

620

According to the auction: “I have the Yaesu model FT-620 Six Meter All Mode Transceiver. Included in the auction is the AC line cord as well as the Yaesu hand microphone. I have never seen a 620 before so I am assuming it is somewhat rare. I have had the 620B but it looks quite a bit different. I did a test today and was able to both receive and transmit. I did not get any real signals as the band was not active but was able to put out at least 10 watts into a dummy load as shown in the video below. Radio is being sold as is. You will need an external speaker as the radio does not have one.”
