How about a Galaxy Mk 2…?
No, I haven’t bought it yet The seller actually withdrew the auction and then re-listed it, changing the “Free Shipping” option for price + shipping. It makes a difference for a self-described “non-working” radio that’s basically going to be a shelf queen. But I’m still thinking about it. Thinking.
UPDATE: I bought it.
(It’s Thursday; it’s really raining; what do you want from life?)
It’s a receiver for gosh sakes!
“Antique Vintage 1930s Ham Radio Morse Code Radio Station Base W8EWM Bluefield WV”
“This does have some weight to it, but two people can move it alone.”
If it’s as advertised, it’s a bargain…
The Yaesu FT-757GX HF transceiver covering 160 to 10 meters and has ten memories. The general coverage receiver tunes from 500 kHz to 30 MHz. Power is 100 watts in CW, SSB, FM and 25 watts AM. The FT-757GX features IF Shift, Electronic Keyer, Squelch and Noise Blanker.
The top panel has CW adjustments. The rear panel has numerous input and output jacks.
Nice radio, unfortunately I don’t know a lot about this radio only what I have read. My dad was a ham operator and used it quite often. The radio come with the radio its self, power supply and a Yaesu Dynamic Microphone (MD-1) if the radio had a stock mic of some sort I don’t have it.
Note the, “I don’t know a lot about… but my Dad….” dodge.
Starting bid on the 660-T and 600-R twins is $300, which is reasonable –until you get into the descriptions. The receiver is just about okay but the transmitter has a list of woes. Shipping is a PIA at $98 out of Texas,
Sometimes you just have to break away from the now and go back to the then. My assembly roots are in RC cars, trucks, and boats. Besides, doesn’t everyone like an old VW bus?

If you have 6M activity in your area, the 620B (no FM) is an interesting radio.
This Yaesu FT-620B 6-meter multi-mode transceiver is in good physical condition.There are a few very minor smudges and small scratches as you can see in the pictures but very good for a radio of this age. The radio comes with the original Yaesu high impedance microphone, the original power cord and the original Yaesu manual.
Operates SSB, CW and AM. Maximum power output is 10 watts. The AC power supply is built-in. This is a very compact and capable 6-meter station. As described but sold as-is with no return or refund. Item is from an estate sale.
(If it’s so good, why don’t I buy it? Already own one.)
