Habitats for Hybrids
No, not a Carter thing...
This is an idea whos time has come. There are a lot of old, broken and repairable Hybrid radios out there. Mostly Kenwood, these TS-520, 530, 820 etc. are sitting gathering dust in some closet of basement nook. I have been repairing these for some time and selling them to less fortunate as used radios. I don't ask a lot of money, but I simply cover my cost of shipping and tubes when I must replace them. Most all my parts come from donors and bone yard items. A lot of these radios have gone to NEW "general class" operators who do not have the money to buy new.
If you have one of these radios and would like to sell or donate for the sake of "less fortunate" Hams who are on limited income or SS. Contact me via my website. I can be reached at http://www.RFampGUY.com or you can eMail me from the QRZ bio.
If you are or know of a Ham who is in need of an inexpensive radio, please contact me so I may add you to my list. I will do the best I can to hold the price of these units under $100.00.
You can contact me almost every evening at 11:30PM EST on 80 Meters @ 3773.KHz. My webcam is live on QRZ when I am on the air from my shack.
Please consider donating for a worth-while cause. There are hundreds of Hams who want a decent radio, there are only so many technicians who want to share these old radios with them...won't you join the cause. If you can repair these classics (Kenwood, Drake or Yaesu) and are willing to do it with little or no compensation, join me in "habitats for hybrids".
