KL3TX Yaesu FT-817 HF VHF UHF Radio MH-36 Mic etc or Trade Toward FT-897 D Fri Jul 25 02:30:49 2014  
Up for sale is a Yaesu FT-817 all mode HF/VHF/UHF radio. I have tested it and it works great, but it does need a little love (cosmetic only).

This radio has seen very, very little use on TX as it was mostly used for RX. As you can see in the pictures, the radio is missing the power/lock buttons -- these buttons still fully operate with no problems. The case is missing a couple screws and has a bit of cosmetic wear. The case is still very solid and tight, replacement screws can be ordered for cheap from Yaesu. I have ordered the parts from Yaesu and they shipped today, I have a replacement button strip coming to replace the power/lock buttons, as well as a brand new pristine top case and shoulder strap clips. Unfortunately, the bottom case was out of stock but I'm not usually looking at the bottom of the radio a lot so it doesn't bother me. I can forward the package from Yaesu on to you, or I can wait to ship the unit until I receive them. I would also be willing to install all of the parts for you as well. The replacement parts should be here in a few days.

This unit also has the upgraded DTMF microphone but as you can see it has a bit of white paint on it as well as having a lot of the lettering/numbering worn off but it is still readable. This in no way affects the condition of the microphone and I received good signal reports when I tested 2M/70cm. I can also confirm DTMF works as well as I used it to control a local IRLP node.

This radio was owned by a ham who is now a silent key and it was not used outdoors but rather it was attached to a wheelchair. Just add an antenna and you are set, this is a great radio for people who spend a lot of time outdoors or need a good emergency radio as this radio can run from a battery pack/SLA battery/gel cell or even commodity AA batteries.

Comes with:
Radio Base
Printed manual (not original but bigger and easier to read)
Yaesu MH-36E8J DTMF microphone
50Ohm Terminator for front panel antenna (I don't use the front antenna)
DC power lead
AA battery tray with "green wire mod" (Lets you use rechargeable batteries)

I am looking for $450 + $20 for shipping within the United States. I can accept money orders or PayPal. I will also be interested in trading the radio set plus cash for an FT-897/D. Trying to avoid taking this to eBay. Please email for quickest response at kl3tx ak.net, otherwise I will be checking replies periodically.

NX2Y Needed Short Separation Cable Alinco DR-610 Fri Jul 25 00:19:01 2014  
  I need the original separation cable for the Alinco DR-610. I somehow lost mine and now want to use the radio unseparated in the house. Before I am asked why I don't make one myself, I came down with a nerve disease a few years back that makes it impossible for me to do that sort of thing anymore. I will be honest, I could buy one from Alinco, they only want $12.86 for one. But they also want $13.25 for shipping for an item that will fit inside a normal letter envelope with room to spare. If I have to pay over $25 for the cable, I will just have to use the radio separated. $25 is four or five meals for my wife and I and I can't justify paying that much when I can use the radio the way it is. So if you have an Alinco DR-610 that you are parting out, please contact me with a price and shipping cost. I can be contacted by phone at (918) 285-6636 or email at callengilbert@gmail.com.

Thanks for reading this,


BTW: I also lost the original separation cable for my Yaesu FT-857 at the same time. I bought the replacement from Yaesu for less than $8.50 including shipping. I think I will stick with Yaesu from now on.

K7LJ ICOM IC-756 HF 6-Meter Transceiver Thu Jul 24 22:51:34 2014  

This is a nice, clean ICOM IC-756 Transceiver which covers the nine - HF and the 6-Meter Ham bands. It has General Coverage Receive from 30 kHz to 60 MHz. It has a high-resolution TFT dot matrix LCD display (in very good condition, with no lines) which also offers a Spectrum Scope function.

Here are some of the IC-756 Features:

Triple Band Stacking Register
101 Memories
Noise Blanker
Multiple Display Formats
Realtime Spectrum Display
Twin PBT
100 Watt Output

Built-in Auto Antenna Tuner
Speech Compressor
100% Duty Cycle
Automatic Notch
1 Hz Readout
Memory Keyer
RF Attenuator 6/12/18 dB
Automatic Notch

It requires an external power supply delivering 13.8V DC at 20 amps. I used an ICOM PS-125 with it, but I'm keeping that to use with another ICOM radio. It comes with the ICOM hand microphone, and requires a key or paddles (if you work CW). Like any other radio, it sounds much better on receive by using an external speaker. This listing is only for the transceiver, hand microphone and a copy of the instruction manual.

The transceiver is in nice condition, a few small scratches and dents which you can see in the fourth (above the keypad) and the fifth (below the display) close-up pictures. But is is an excellent radio and has been well taken care of by the previous owner. The camera flash makes the display look greenish, but it really is the standard ICOM bluish/purple color. The first picture is taken without flash - although it's somewhat dim, it shows the actual display colors much better. $675 plus shipping to CONUS locations only - USPS Money Order, no trades. Please email direct with any inquiries to my personal email address: larryj at teleport dot com instead of using QRZ.com's message system.

  NEW !! Jetstream JT1806HD50 rotor cable for Yaesu rotators with connectors on both ends. I bought this from Gigaparts as a replacemet for my G450 rotator but found I had a bad solder connection in my rotator so the new cable is not needed..I paid $103.00 from Gigaparts but was advised that another store had it for $85.00 shipped ! I listed it here on QRZ.COM for $70.00 shipped but so far no takers. I hate to lose so much money but cannot use this new cable so have decided to reduce my price to $65.00 shipped CONUS.. Money order only !!
So if anyone can use a new 6 conductor cable for their Yaesu rotator with the connectors on both ends professionally installed please email
at ingejack@cox.net Thank You. This will be the last time listed .If not sold I will keep it as a spare Thank YOU

WA6ILT US Towers TMM-433 M 2 436CP Thu Jul 24 20:43:40 2014  
  I have a US Towers TMM-433HD tower for sale, on the ground at Holden, MA. This is a 33ft., four section telescoping tower. Also included are:

1. The fold-over fixture so it can be lowered to the ground.
2. Four coax arms.
3. The Inverted Vee arm.
4. An ICE tower grounding fixture.
5. Ten foot steel mast.

All that's missing are the anchor bolts. You'll need to buy those from US Tower.

An M^2 CP436 satellite antenna w/ solid FiberGlas cross boom are also available.

The setup cost about $3,000 new. I'm asking $1,000, other offers considered. Antenna and boom for an additional $100.
Buyer must pick up.

The town has an extremely anti-ham tower ordinance so it's not going up at the new QTH. I'd really like to see some ham use this tower. If it's not sold by autumn, it's going as scrap.

Please contact via e-mail @ wa6ilt@amsat.org.191369
