I have been perusing the ebay prices off and on for awhile on the old Viking series transmitters. The prices I see for even rough looking "as-is" specimens seems off-the-charts, to me. 7-8-900$ asking for Rangers, etc. Now I would think the demand would not be that great and there is a limited number of people who are wanting an AM anchor and not hardly all of those are capable of restoring or maintaining such a transmitter. So is everyone buying hamfest and locally for better values? When you add the ebay shipping estimate to the price, it seems like a real no way deal on those.
