This is my Drake SSR-1 Communications receiver which I currently own, NOT AND ESTATE sale, not selling it for my brother, not selling it for friend….I OWN ALL THESES RIGS that are pictured. I have this unit for about 10 years with no problems. When unit was purchased, the amateur radio operator I purchased from, did a complete tune-up and alignment. The unit has some improvements that I installed. When I received the unit, I notice it was highly sensitive, too sensitive and in great working condition.
Sometimes it’s okay to only show what you’re selling to prevent possible confusion. Although well meaning, this is like the “Find the Pope in the Pizza” contest. (Unless you look for the unit that’s lit.)
This is a COPY of a manual. It’s available online for free from several sources. If you buy this manual, you’re paying for a printed copy, with two sheets of plastic, and a comb binding.
You’re paying, in this case, $14.72 for those things. If you’re that wealthy, just send me $10 and I’ll send you the URL for where you can find the file for free. Don’t be stupid.
I know you’re all waiting to see my Swan 400 up and running, but there’s been a delay. Got an HELLACIOUS respiratory something or other and I’m just getting out of it. Only observation I have so far from the 400 and VFO that I did get upstairs is that this is more peanuts than I’ve known The Radiosmith to have used in almost forever.
Maybe his styrofoam elephant died?
What do you do with an FT-7 and FT-7b when you don’t use them very much? (Whoever just said, “sell them,” please leave the room.) Of course, you get them comforters so they feel good. These are felt.
I get them from RadioDustCovers.com. I pay full price, no quid pro cover. They’re just well done and relatively inexpensive –depending on what material you want, etc.
Amateur Radio growth in the US continues to soar. At the end of 2014, the total number of radio amateurs in the FCC’s Universal Licensing System (ULS) database reached an all-time high of 726,275. The trend has continued in the first 2 months of 2015, which saw the ham population rise to slightly more than 727,000.
The figures exclude expired licenses that are within the 2-year grace period, and club station licenses. Outside of a little dithering last fall, growth in the Amateur Radio Service in 2014 was steady, according to figures compiled by Joe Speroni, AH0A, on his FCC Amateur Radio Statistics web pages. Over the past decade the number of Amateur Radio licenses in the ULS database grew by some 8.1 percent. But 2014 also was a banner year for the ARRL Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC). MORE
Thanks to KN3C… and as soon as I can determine which one of my meds has been screwing around with my concentration you will.
You are bidding on a non-working Yaesu FT-757GX. I got the radio in this shape off eBay as a project . I was told by the seller that the owner of the radio had connected it to 110v, as result you can see in the pics. I did power it up directly connected inside and it came on.
The initial lottery bid is $150…
It consisted of the 400, a 410 VFO, and a 117c power supply…
Here’s how it was described:
Vintage SWAN 400 ham radio station. A beautiful example of this set. You are bidding on the complete station includes power supply. The radio has full power. I used it to talk to someone in St Petersburg, Russia first time I got on 15 meters. Please note this is a very old set. The swiches will need cleaning and de-oxit for best results there maybe a scratchy control or two. The radio works nicely never the less. I am selling it as-is due to shipping such heavy items and as any old radio of this vintage usually need the switches cleaned and some alignment.
It needed new finals and 2 caps ($52.95), 8.25 hours of labor ($371.25), and, of course, shipping back to me ($98.88). I originally paid $375 for the radio ($100 under the asking price) plus $95 shipping direct to my tech guy in Florida. I think I’m going to be using the 400 a lot.
You never know what might show up at my shack…
HERE IS A SUPER COOL OLD, SELDOM SEEN WRL GALAXY TRANSCEIVER, WITH ITS ITS MATCHING POWER SUPPLY AND CLOCK MODULE. BOTH ARE IN NICE CONDITION, AND HAVE NOT BEEN POWERED UP IN MANY MANY YEARS.

MAKE A FAIR OFFER ON THIS SELDOM SEEN STATION. A PREFECT ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION. THIS COMES FROM THE ESTATE OF A LONG TIME COLLECTOR HAM RADIO GUY.
