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.

Affordable HF Rig. Great for new users and perfect for a backup rig.

Kenwood TS-130SE HF Transceiver with matching power supply and mic. This was bought as my Novice rig in 1983. Through the last 33 years, it's been solid as a rock. Comes with matching power supply. This was one of Kenwood's first all solid-state HF transceivers and it is still one of the best.

I managed a two-way radio shop in the 1990s and 2000s and the technicians took great care of this rig for me. Wasn't hard. Every time they looked at it, the transmitter was right on frequency, the receiver was extremely sensitive, and the electronics just needed a dusting out now and then.

The appearance is a bit rough. This rig is a veteran of many Field Days over the years, in fact, if you've been in the club long enough you may have worked this rig at a Field Day! Right now the only problem is the coaxial connector in the back is a bit loose. That's an easy fix and the wiring is not affected. All knobs and switches are intact and working.

Rig covers 10-80 meters at 90-110 watts, with an easy modification for the WARC bands that has not been done. This rig does not have a general coverage receiver. It has all the bells and whistles that Kenwood was famous for in the early 1980s, including a very handy IF shift and automatic sideband selection. Digital and analog displays will keep you right on frequency. I have worked many DX stations with this rig. The receiver is ultra-sensitive and it is awesome.

Power supply is included. The PS-130 is a matching supply for the radio and supplies 20A continuous 13.8V power. The power supply turns on and off automagically with the rig's power switch. Simple plug in connector plus a 10A screw port for other uses.

$300 firm for both. I will not sell the items separately. No shipping, you must pick it up at my home in St. George.

Thanks! Ric Wayman K7DLX
