    I've decided to sell my Drake Novice station that I've pieced together over the last few years. We've decided to RV full time and it's time to minimize. This is a full station in excellent condition. I've used it consistently on 40 and 20 meters and it's been great. I haven't used it on 10, 15, or 80 although I have no indication that it wouldn't work fine on those bands as well. That being said, this is vintage electronics.

    The station includes the Drake 2-NT Novice CW Transmitter, Drake 2-C Receiver, Hallicrafters HA-5 VFO, Drake MN-4 Antenna Tuner, and the Drake MS-4 Speaker. All connecting cables comes with it including the cable from the HA-5 VFO to the 2-NT crystal socket with the proper length and impedance.

    The 2-NT filter caps have been replaced with the Hayseed Hamfest Capacitor kit. The transmitter works great with 60 watts out on 40mtrs.

    The 2-C works fine and mates nicely with the 2-NT. The band changing switch could use cleaning as once in a while you first turn it on after not using it for a while you have to nudge it for good contact and then it good thereafter.
    The HA-5 VFO works good. I've experienced no issues.

    Speaker is good

    MN-4 Tuner works good. The momentary push switch to set the forward power reference for VSWR is a bit sticky and returns slowly after depressing. It could use cleaning or just help it by pulling it out. There is a crease in the cabinet on one of the back bottom corners.

    It's a great CW station and is a hoot to operate.

    Asking $800 for local pickup only. I live just a few miles south of Macon Georgia. Payment via PayPal or Cash upon pickup.
