Icom IC-765 + SP-20
I have low hours use mint Icom IC-765 HF Transceiver (sn 01967) for sale. I am the original owner. It is in exceptional condition physically and electrically. Rig was kept as backup during most of ownership period. Never used in smoking environment. I sent the rig to Mike Nadeau (N1EQ-see eHam) in 2009 to pre-empt known 765 issues and improve the radio. Mike performed a thorough "tune-up" including replacement of 7 plastic trimmer caps on PLL and Main Units with ceramic units, replacement of relay RL13 on Tuner Relay Unit, realignment of reference osc, VCO's, DDS LPL, BFO/carrier osc and carrier balance, replacement of both lithium batteries and addition of a jumper plug to ATU battery (to allow easy reset), and checked alignment including RX gain and ATU settings. Mike installed the W2ISB PBT modification, installed an optional Icom CR-282 high stability oscillator, and installed an Inrad Roofing Filter Modification (Inrad cost $175). Also, I had Mike replace the original Icom filters with the better Icom FL-80, FL-44A and FL53A filters. All of Mike's work is documented and will accompany the rig.
I also have the Original User's Manual and an Original Service Manual. Rig comes with Original IC-765 Sales Brochure and the Original Icom 1990 Amateur Products Catalog with the IC-765 inside. Rig has all original boxing.
Also, offered is a matching SP-20 matching Speaker with Audio Filters (and Original Instruction Sheet).
I don't think you can find a better condition IC-765 anywhere. (By the way, you won't find a better radio technician than Mike Nadeau, either.) I have retired to smaller quarters and need to shrink the station. Transceiver and speaker offered at $1275 plus shipping. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss or for telephone number.
Rig is SOLD. Many thanks for everyone's interest.
