I’m starting to get excited. Most people seem to lose it over unboxing pictures. I just got this pic (among many others) of the initial fitment of the FL-1000 in a box and, for a 63-yo, I’M STOKED!
No, not the one a few posts down. Got a note from KN3C:
You really interested in a Swan 700S? I have one. I bought it from the original owner because he needed money. It had not been turned on in ages when I bought it. I started to restore it, ran out of time, and then interest. The power supply was rebuilt with new caps and a number of electrolytic caps were changed in the radio. I had it fired up and it was receiving but it needs a good alignment. The radio did not have finals installed when I got it so I never tried the transmitter. If you want it, it’s yours – no charge except to ship it. (We live on opposite ends of NJ.)
I immediately ran to my shrine and lit some candles to the gods of ham (Bayonne, Black Forest, Brine Cured, Canned, Corned, City, Country, and Green). Then I sent him a reply profusely packed with “Thank you’s.” A complete tube set is also on it’s way from a third party. Pictures when it arrives.
Thank you once again, KN3C!
Up for bid we have a old swan electronics single side band transceiver model number HF-700s and Swan PSU-3A power supply.
Let me start by saying I know nothing about these radios. It was in a lot we purchased from a local estate.
What I do know is the cord is cut. That being said I still wired it in to try to see if it powered up and it does!!
Power supply light comes on and there is a noticeable hum from that. The transceiver also lights up! The gauge works and all the tunes in back seem to light up. I am sure if you are use to working on these you could get it going in no time. Comes with just the two pieces pictured.
“The twins were aligned and tested 15 years ago. All worked to spec at that time.”
I worked a heck of a lot better 15 years ago then I do now. $895 and $105 shipping sounds a mite high to me.
Please look at the pictures.,,, BUYER NEED CLEAN IT UP.

The listing has been updated to reflect what’s in the picture.
I’ve never seen it in person, but this 420 VFO was mine at one point. I had it sent with a 400 and a 117c power supply directly to my tech genius in Florida. (He repairs ALL of my equipment.) As it turned out, the 400 itself was not feasible to repair ($$$$$) by a 3rd party and the only replacement I could find had a 410 VFO and another power supply with it.
He aligned both the 410 and 400 together (after aligning the 420 with the original 400), added some tubes to the 400, charged me a passel of money and returned it to me in great working order. Part of the deal was that I got to sell the original non-repairable 400 and he got to keep the 420 and the second power supply to defray some of the cost of the double repair. I was a happy camper
Told Steve he could do what he wanted with the parts so he’s decided to sell the 420 on –dun-dun-dun– eBay. Here it is. Take a look.
Next time your browsing eBay looking for a bargain price on a Yaesu FT-101 (hahahahahahaha!) keep this in mind:
The FT-101 – early model 1971 (ser # <25000) was an 80-10m band transceiver brought out in the United States which was known for its strong receiver overload, TX spurs and audio problems. This includes the unofficial subtypes Mk 0 (-06000), Mk 0A (06001-07991), Mk I (08000-23999) and Mk II (24000-24999). The FT-101 – late model 1972 including the unofficial Mk IIA (ser # >25000) was the same transceiver with major modifications to receiver, regulator, IF and audio boards.
An FT-101A type was never produced.
The FT-101B – early model 1973 (ser # <6000) 160-10m band transceiver with improved IF (PB1183B), Audio (PB1315) and Noiseblanker (PB1292) boards. The FT-101B – late model 1974 160-10m band transceiver (ser # >6001) with upgraded regulator (PB1314A), IF (PB1180B) and audio (PB1315A) boards.
The FT-101BS (1973 only for the Japanese market) with a single 6JS6C tube and only 50 watt output.
An FT-101 C or D type was never produced.
***THIS IS A WORKING T-4XC, WITH GOOD FINALS, NICE SSB AUDIO & A CLEAN CW NOTE BUT (1) POWER OUTPUT ON 80 METERS IS VERY LOW (2) THE EXACT REASON FOR THE EXTERNAL PTO/VFO MOD IS UNKNOWN, BUT FREQUENCY STABILITY SEEMED GOOD DURING THE TEST PROCESS (3) this T-4XC WAS NOT TESTED***
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.)
