    This one works fine, and looks good. With paper work for $100.

    SGC 2020 HF (160 thru 10 meters) QRP Transceiver:

    This is the transceiver for base, backpack or business trips -
    the ultimate portable transceiver. There are no confusing menus
    and just two-step operation: select your frequency and transmit.
    The SG-2020 is compact and weighs only 4.5 pounds. Operate SSB
    or CW from wherever you are.

    The SG-2020 covers all HF frequencies from 1.8 to 30 Mhz. It
    is factory-set for 20 watts PEP with front panel power
    adjustments down to 1W using USB, LSB, or CW. There are 20
    factory pre-programmed memories preset to frequencies within
    each of the nine amateur bands for fast band accessibility.
    Each memory position can be selected for a specific transmitter
    output power, specific amount of bandwidth filtering, mode and
    split VFO. The memory channels can be re-programmed to accommodate
    alternate frequencies of your choice within the frequency range
    and a simple unlock procedure allows you to choose any HF
    frequency worldwide.

    Tone Rejection: Better than 57dB
    Dynamic Noise Rejection: Better than 18dB

    To put it another way, this is the ideal QRP transceiver!

    This particular unit appears to have never been used. It is
    still in its original box, although I have taken it out and
    tested it, and all works great. Cosmetically, it is the same
    as new. No defects.

    Hand mic is included for $550.

    TenTec 585 Paragon HF Transceiver:

    The Paragon is a top of the line transceiver that includes a
    general coverage receiver. It covers 160-10 meters, including
    WARC bands, with 100 watts output. The receiver is fantastic.
    It has dual VFOs and many memories built in, along with a
    speech processor. Basically, it has about every feature that
    a ham could want in an HF rig.

    This particular unit works 100% as best I can tell. Since the
    rig does so many things, I am sure that there is something I
    didn't test, but I don't know what it is (or I would have
    tested it!). It has had all updates completed by TenTec.

    Cosmetically, it is in extremely nice shape. The front panel
    is extremely good. Most all of the lettering is clean and
    crisp. This one also has the Giehl chip in it making it
    similar to a Paragon II.

    Large manual and power cord included for $650.

    TenTec Power Supplies:

    TenTec Model 280 power supply, 20 amps at 13 V DC
    This supply is quite heavy duty electrically. It has 2 pass
    transistors, instead of the one that some have. It also has an
    ammeter on it.
    This one works fine, and looks OK as well.
    With paper work for $100.

    "Switcher / 25" 25 amp switching power supply:
    This is a 25 amp switching power supply in a case that
    matches the early Omni series case, with the metal bezel
    around it. It is in a case that is the same size as a 243
    remote VFO. It has an ammeter on the front, along with
    Switch, TenTec logo, and output bulb. The front panel
    basically looks like a 280 power supply with a metal bezel,
    but says "Switcher/25" on it. It is very quiet, and well
    shielded, and does not produce any electrical noise that
    I could find. $150

    TenTec 238 Roller Inductor Antenna Tuner:

    This HF antenna tuner will handle the full legal limit, and will
    match almost anything. It is rated to match loads up to 3000 ohms.
    It is an "L" network, which means that there is only one correct
    matching point, and not false readings like some tuners. It has a
    roller inductor that permits matching all HF bands, including the
    WARC bands.

    In addition to the tuner, it also includes a wattmeter with 200
    and 2000 watt scales, plus SWR bridge. There is also an antenna
    switch built in, so this unit will handle all of your antenna

    This particular unit works fine, and looks extremely nice. I can
    not find a scratch or defect on it. With paper work for $395.

    MFJ 989 C Roller Inductor Full Power HF Tuner:

    This is the most popular legal limit antenna tuner. It
    handles 1500 Watts from 1.8 to 30 MHz including MARS/WARC

    You can match dipoles, verticals, inverted V's, random
    wires, beams, balanced lines, coax, mobile whips,
    shortwave -- nearly any antenna.

    It includes a cross needle meter to read forward power,
    reflected power, and SWR simultaneously. It will read
    peak or average power. It also has a switched meter light,
    if you supply 12 Volts to it.
    An antenna switch is built in, as is a dummy load.

    This one works 100% with absolutely no problems. It looks
    extremely nice, with no scratches. It includes paper work,
    and is in its original box.

    MFJ sells these for just under $400. Buy this one for $230.

    MFJ 941 C antenna tuner for 160 thru 10 meters
    This tuner has a "cross needle" SWR bridge built into it,
    so one can read both forward power, reflected power, and
    SWR at the same time. The meter has a back light, assuming
    12 Volts is applied to the tuner. The wattmeter portion
    will read either 30 W or 300 W full scale.
    An antenna switch will switch between either balanced line,
    two coax antennas, or a built in dummy load. Antennas can
    be operated thru the tuner, or the tuner can be bypassed.
    This tuner will operate on 160 thru 10 meters, including
    the WARC bands.
    This particular unit works 100%. It looks extremely nice.
    I can not find a scratch on it.
    Paper work is included for $100.

    MFJ 900 HF Antenna Tuner:
    The MFJ 900 covers 160 thru 10 meters, and is rated at 200
    watts. I would not put more than 100 watt thru it, however.
    It is in a nice Woodgrain / Eggshell color enclosure that is
    a perfect match for some of the earlier TenTec gear, such as
    the Triton I and II, Argonaut 505 and 509, and others.
    This one works fine, and looks fine also. $45

    I also have many other accessories available such as
    microphones, wattmeters, keyers, etc. Just too many to list
    here. Please e-mail your requests.

    Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
