    Nice iron.

    Big? Eh, but nice just the same.

    No view of what's inside the box. I wouldn't bet on much more than DX-100 power.

    Still, worth checking out if you live nearby. Items like that are probably few and far between in WY. But extremely unlikely worth $1000.

    Methinks the "best offer" is not going to be more than a couple of hundred dollars, if that much!

    to make the sale with homebrew there needs to be lots of photos, front panel plus chassis inside. I can't believe how many listings there are on that don't have any photos at all. how hard is it nowadays to upload a photo. on the other hand, ER has listings and no photos but I somehow think there's less likelihood of fraud there.

    You got that right.

    About 6 years ago, I saw an add in QTH for a Plate Modulated Rig sporting a 4-1000 modulated by a pair of 3-500z's. This rig was homebrewed by Big Al, K1JCL in Connecticut using some nice Broadcast Iron. Before I even considered making the 3200 mile round trip to purchase it, you can be sure I had every deck pulled out. I had them send me high rez pictures of every square inch of all the chassis, the glass, the magnetics, and the rack cabinet. It helped that there were also some rough schematics of it.

    I ultimately made it to Connecticut and the rig now lives in Louisiana. I would have never even thought about making that trip without those detailed pictures.

    Indeed. A lot like my latest odyssey to Iowa for that Raytheon.

    Tons of groundwork, with lots of help from fellow hams.

    Ok, change that to "Mid-sized Iron", I suppose to be qualified as big on this sub-forum,
    it would require a fork lift to move.

    I too would love to see what's behind all of the gray panels.

    A lot of mismatched little iron, oil caps and empty space for two chassis and one for 100W of RF. Plus a $100 HQ-129X and a load of mostly useless series string TV tubes. Offer $150 for all.
