I have for sale the best all mode 2m and 70cm rigs available.

Read the reviews on eHam.

It is very rare that these units come up for sale!

1.     Kenwood TR-751E 2m All Mode

The pots were changed about 1 1/2 years ago and are not "scratchy"

Note: This is an "e" version but can be modified to an A version quite easily if you read up on the modification.

If you just want to use ssb, then no mods necessary.

2.     Kenwood TR-851E 70cm All Mode

The pots were changed about 1 1/2 years ago and are not "scratchy"

Note: This is an "e" version

They are supplied with power cable and microphones.

Both units are currently mounted together as per the picture

Selling for $400 each or $750 as a set.

As you can see, they are in excellent condition!

The reason for sale, is that I have very little time for the hobby these days, so better that these units go to someone who can really appreciate them
