Lucky 7…

Why? The dopes who sold it to me shipped it in a medium-sized priority mail box with about 1″ of foam peanuts as padding. Also left the mic plugged in… It’s just out of the box and, cosmetically, it seems to have survived.


And now I have an FT-747sx, FT-747gx, FT-757gx, FT-757gx ii, and an FT-767gx. Hot dog!

The damn frackin’ POS doesn’t work!!!! What is it with people? I really wanted this piece of crap!

They’re Officially Gone

They’re gone! (3X) FLdx/FRdx-401 twins, an FT-101EX, FR-101s, TS-520, and a Swan 500cx have officially departed my garage in the trunk of a Maxima –which scrapped my driveway on the way out hihi.


Thank you Bill for taking the long drive here to retrieve them and it was a pleasure to meet both you and your copilot/associate lugger Mike. Good guys both!

FLdx-400/FRdx 400 GIVEAWAY!


I have a problem. I can’t lift or carry much any more. So about a year or two ago I stacked these three FLdx/FRdx-400 radios on a bench in my garage. I just stacked them there as I got them. They will be there until someone else carries them out.

How would you like to be that person?

If you live near Cresskill, NJ (8 miles north of the George Washington Bridge), one or all of them can be yours if you stop by and haul it/them away. That’s right, THEY’RE FREE!!!! And no shipping charges.

They are what they are and I can tell you it’s highly doubtful anything works. Cosmetically, they’re probably a “6” on average.

Soon to Be My Swan HF-700S

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!

Teach This Swan HF-700s The Words

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.
