For sale: 

Home-built 80 through 20 meter magnetic loop antenna with power supply, controller (variable pulse rate/width, raise/lower frequency push-buttons, position indicating meter movement, and optional pulse activation via coaxial cable).

Antenna uses 20.5 ft of 1-1/8 inch diameter copper tubing and one Jennings type UCS-400 (10-400 pf) vacuum variable capacitor rated 10 kV.  Total height 100 inches.  More than 50 ft of connecting control cables included.

The controller for the 80-20 meter magnetic loop antenna has two push buttons;  one to raise and one to lower the tuned frequency of the loop.  This is accomplished using digital pulse signals with the rate and width of pulses set by the operator on the controller.

A meter on the controller is used to view the relative position of the variable capacitor.  Limit switches associated with the motor-drive open meter circuit causing it to read zero when a limit switch condition occurs.  Otherwise, the meter reads 5-10 mA at low frequencies and 40-45 mA at high frequencies.  The meter is not absolutely essential for operation of the controller.

This controller is equipped with a pair of optical isolaters (NTE-1044) that allow it to be remotely operated with the "MFJ Super Hi-Q Loop TM" remote control that is part of MFJ controllers for MFJ magnetic loop antennae such as the MFJ-1786 and MFJ1788.

Power for this controller (12 and 24 volts nominal) is obtained from a pair of 12 volt DC "Wall-warts" rated for 1000 mA each.

Offer includes relocation within 100 miles of Washington, UT (offer made by seller's neighbor).

$400.00 for this unit.  If you have any questions please e-mail to:   w7thy01@gmail.com  or call me, John Hartung, W7THY, at phone number 435-632-4649.  I am located in Washington City, Utah

It's more than a year since I came to the Ham Radio club meeting with radio equipment from my deceased father. I have only  a couple items here in my possession, including this:

For sale:  MFJ Differential T Tuner and two connecting cables. I  understand it's an excellent tuner. I was told it's the one that can
operate at the full 1500 watts.  I think new ones sell for $599, and I was told I might sell this one on eBay for around $300 or more, but I
don't want to deal with all that. I just want to get it in the hands of someone who can use it. So if $175 would interest someone in the
radio club, I'll add the two cables with it; everything for $175.  I may bring it to the next club meeting -- if someone hasn't offered to buy it before then.
