    S/N 18316. I bought this as a fixer-upper project for retirement, but I'm not going to get to it any time soon.

    It is in good cosmetic condition. There are a few light few scratches, and the face is very nice. The chassis is not corroded, but it could use a good cleaning. There are some pencil markings for the extra XTALS shown through the little window by the XTAL switch.

    The VFO dial and gears are loose on the PTO assembly. The gears are not broken. I emailed Ron, WB4HFN (the Drake guy), and he said this is a common problem that he fixes. I slowly powered it up on a Variac, and heard a hum on an external speaker that went away at full voltage. Unfortunately, that's all I heard, so the rig is sold as "DOA"

    There are 4 crystal installed into sockets on the back of the rig, labelled: 29.1, 21.1, 20.6 and 12.6. In the center filter position, there is a "Heath Dynamics" filter that is labelled A0740, which should be a 500Hz filter.

    I have a copy of the manual. I just shipped a similar size/weight radio to NJ, and the cost was ~$40.00

    I am asking $170.00, shipped in the USA, OBO, and payment by PayPal. Please contact me by email at: ("mycall" at arrl dot net), or by a PM here.

    I can email more pictures if someone wants to see something specific. Thanks for looking. 73, Jim KO5V
