He Said… (Yaesu FT-767)

The guy who sold me the FT-767 is angry at me because it doesn’t work as described:

Keying Up a Receiver?

drakea

Hey, you can’t make these things up…

UPDATE: They changed the picture.

I’m not sure it’s an improvement. However, the description is almost incoherent:

“DRAKE  R-4B Receiver. This is and estate sale fine It powers on all the lights come on. But I have no way of testing it pass that and it will be sold as such LIMTED TESTING. This unit will come as seen in photos and she sold in its current condition.”

Closer to a Set

After buying an FT-747SX, FT-747GX, and an FT-757GX, this seemed natural…

ft767Yeah, it’s an FT-767GX. After all, I’m at 84% on my practice exam. :-)

“BEING RELISTED DUE TO A NON PAYER. DONT MAKE A OFFER UNLESS YOUR REALLY LOOKING TO BUY. THIS IS MY YAESU FT-767GX THAT IVE HAS A LONG TIME AND JUST DONT USE ANYMORE, WORKS FINE AND ITS IN GREAT SHAPE FACE LOOKS REAL NICE, VFO SPINS FREELY, HAS A FEW SMALL NICKS ON THE TOP FROM THINGS PUT ON IT OVER THE YEARS BUT VERY SLIGHT, iT HAS THE POWER CORD AND STOCK MIC AND OWNERS MANUAL, I DONT HAVE THE BOX ITS LONG GONE. THE METAL GROUND NUT CAME OFF THE BACK NOT A BIG DEAL I NEVER USED IT ANYWAY BUT I HAVE IT AND WILL INCLUDE IT NO MODULES ARE INCLUDED, ,NO SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE 48 STATES, THIS IS BIG AND HEAVY AND WILL BE PACKED NICELY,

“The frequency displays nicely but i had a hard time getting a picture of the display but it works and looks great. Cosmetically the radio is in very good condition, just minor wear. The Yaesu FT-767GX is an HF transceiver covering 160 to 10 meters amateur bands plus it includes a triple conversion general coverage receiver that tunes from 100 kHz to 30000 kHz. The FT-767GX is designed to accept additional, optional band modules (not included) for coverage of the key amateur bands above 30 MHz including 6 meters, 2 meters and 70 cm. The FT-767GX even includes a built in HF antenna tuner. Other advanced features include: IF shift, Notch, Electronic Keyer, Squelch, Noise Blanker, Attenuator, Passband Tuning and memories. Includes radio, original mic and ac power cord.”

All that’s left (I think) is a 757 Mk II …and an FT-707s maybe.

Filling in the Gaps – SM-220

Time to start rounding of the radios.

sm220

The Kenwood SM-220 Station Monitor is a multi-function monitor scope which functions as a band-scope (with BS-8 pan display option, which this one is lacking), monitor and tone generator. It is the ideal product for supporting, monitoring and calibrating equipment in radio stations. It can be used to observe SSB distortion, CW key clicks, and test linearity of linear amplifiers. It has four sweep ranges It also can serve as a RTTY tuning scope. Frequency range:  1.8-150 MHz. Maximum Power:  2000W 1.8-54 MHz and 100W 150 MHz (see manual for other power restrictions).
