    405 was one.
    EDIT - Oops. We doubled.

    Ask on the Ten Tec reflector. You shouldn't have much problem finding a 509. Now that 405 amp, that could be a little tougher.

    Thanks. Did not know of these reflector sites. That will be handy information, since not everyone in the world uses the social media.

    Yeah, there are still a few sane people on earth. :D

    The problem is that there are so few people not obsessed by social media, it makes the appearance somewhat contrary. :eek:

    No problem.

    I took the liberty and posted your query there already.

    The 509 was a neat little rig in it’s day. I worked in a ham store for a few years, and we sold the 509 and then the 515, amongst other Ten Tec rigs (of course, this was back when the old Ten Tec still had dealers). I had a nice 505 for a while as well, but had to sell that off to raise a few shekels (along with some other stuff) when I had the opportunity to pick up an Omni VII.

    Good luck!

    509 and 405 were a nifty little setup. Wish they still made them. :(

    Bought the pair long ago - sold the 509, still use the 405 for my HW-7. Pretty slick amp.
