Item is a used Hustler 5BTV Trap Vertical Antenna, 10, 15, 20, 40 & 80 meter bands, one of the spider tubes on the spider hub was damaged bringing the antenna down so will need to be replaced or I still have the tube so it could be welded, comes with installation and set up instructions. Good antenna for limited space or a new comer to the hobby. Free to a good home (just don't want to see it for sale at next years hamfest hi). The antenna is located in Wanneroo. For further details I can be contacted on 0439 844 696.

 

Thanks Roy, 73 Kevin VK6TKR.

FOR SALE

I have a Yaesu FL-2100B linear amplifier for sale it is in excellent cosmetic and operating condition and had very little use, and from a non-smoking environment, Comes with power lead , original operator’s manual. $700.

FOR SALE

 

Also have a homebrew 70 cm amplifier 10 W input gives around 45 to 50 W output. Originally built when I used to play SSB through satellites.

Cannot remember what the device doing the work is as I can not open the box. Not because there was a problem with the box, just that I cannot open it. Anyone else who could hold a screwdriver could do it with ease.

I reckon that if somebody was to offer a dollar per watt of what I reckon are the number of watts out they could have it.

 

A Kenwood MC – 80 microphone also needs a new home., As does aHeil pro headset. If anyone is interested in either of these then call me to make an offer please.

 

I can be contacted on 0419919675, or via email at VK6YS@iiNet.net.au
