Updated 8/4/2016 – Any items not crossed-out are still available.
I am selling some surplus gear. All prices are for local pickup. Actual shipping paid by the buyer. I could also meet in the Tampa Bay area.
- Microham DB-37 cable for Icom $40
- Microham USB sound card interface (with an icom cable) ($65)
- Icom ID-1 1.2 Ghz Analog/DStar radio. Includes data mode via Ethernet connection to send 128kbs data via DStar. Have microphone, manuals and cables. I have a second one if you want to make a pair for a remote data app. ($550 each)
- Icom 821H Dual-band 2m/440 base CW/SSB/FM radio (it has a quirk in that when you key there is a slight delay). ($400)
- Icom ID-92AD dual band DSTAR radio. Included base charger $200
All radios have been tested on my HP8924C service monitor including output and receiver tests. If you come to see anything, I would be glad to fire it up into the analyzer and let you verify it works according to specs. You know, unless the analyzer sells first.
I ran across a very good blog on building a station. This chap built it from soup to nuts including the room, adding A/C, generator, two contesting operating positions and more. There are many good ideas in his station building series. Look here for more.
Jacek SP5APW and his wife came over last night for a visit. Jacek is here in Florida on holiday. It was certainly nice meeting them and having a chance to talk about his ham radio travels. Jacek’s trip also gave me the incentive to get my shack cleaned up and organized a bit. The header picture of this block is a panorama shot I took with my iPhone.
The equipment from left to right is as follows:
- Alpha 9500 HF Auto-tune amplifier
- Palstar AT-2500 Antenna Tuner (while I await the Alpha 4040).
- Ten-Tec Orion II HF Transceiver (on bottom)
- Icom 775 DSP HF Transceiver
- microHam MKII Keyer Interface
- Paddle on desk in the Lexan is a Begali Stealth Limited (#42)
- Then, Icom 9100 HF/2m/440/1.2 Transceiver (used for VHF/UHF and satellite work).
- FlexRadio Flex-3000 SDR HF Transceiver
The right side of the desk is all work stuff.
