Listed bellow are items that I have in surplus and / or no longer have any requirements for. Most of the test equipment is either pulled from service from my workshop and / or lab due to technology upgrades.

Where my personal radio collection is concerned, in total, I most likely have well over 100 individual pieces in inventory --- so many that I have lost count, and thus comes a time to allow someone else the pleasure of enjoying these fine collectables. Radios accessories and part are either surplus inventory or items that I anticipate I will no longer require.

Unless otherwise indicated, the equipment is in original condition (no user modifications). Serviceability, availability of accessories and cosmetic look varies. Photographs, further information and prices will follow as I update this page. All prices are USD + shipping and handling. I do not have any shipping facilities therefore this will be handled by a 3rd party entity to ensure you receive your item professionally packed. You pay actual shipping and handling costs.

Moving forward and time permitting, I expect to list the remainder of my materiel and collection on eBay to facilitate the purchasing process.

Conditions of sale. Please note that I am not a dealer and I am not a business. All sales are AS IS and FINAL. No after sales service, support or returns. Commercial or defence / contractor purchases are welcomed. No sales of items identified as controlled goods to countries, entities or individuals identified on the restricted / export control list.
