    I have for sale or trade a transmitter and receiver set, Heathkit Marauder HX-10 and a Mohawk RX-1 receiver. The radios have been restored and are exceptionally clean. The cabinets have been completely stripped and factory painted. They look like new. The faceplates and knobs conditions are a 9.5 out of 10. I have the modifications documented and the manuals. Also there is an AK-5 speaker and an Electro Voice 619TR desktop microphone (Not pictured), and a Dow Key relay.

    Also included is a heavily modified Apache TX-1. It's CW only. It has no cabinet. FREE!

    Asking price $700 for all or trade for your ??? Would love to trade for a multi band Hex Beam... These radios weigh just shy of 100 lbs each so local pickup is preferred in Lovettsville, Virginia

    Heathkit Marauder HX-10 Transmitter

    The Heathkit "Marauder" SSB Transmitter is unmatched at less than twice its price! This transmitter operates SSB (upper or lower sideband), CW, AM and FSK. It features a full 180 watts P.E.P. on SSB and CW and operates on 80 through 10 meters. A smart panel meter allows monitoring of grid and plate current, high voltage, ALC, and relative power. Its many operating conveniences include VOX controlled break-in CW and automatic level control (ALC) for higher talk power. The multi-section, hermetically sealed crystal band-pass filter ensures a clean signal with low distortion. Superb engineering of this transmitter results in carrier suppression of 50 db and unwanted sideband suppression of 55 db.

    Other operating conveniences include accessory sockets, output for a monitor scope such as the HO-10, and FSK input. The preheated, temperature compensated VFO provides 100 cps stability after warmup. The final amplifier is shielded and air-cooled, and the 165 to 1 vernier gear drive tuning assembly ensures precise, smooth tuning. It features beautiful exterior styling and heavy chrome plated knobs.

    Take any other transmitter on the market, compare its price, performance, features, quality and versatility with the Heathkit "Marauder" and you'll find none that offer so much at so great a savings! The "Marauder" is a transmitter that has everything you'll need to enjoy SSB amateur operations to their fullest ... a quality instrument that can be depended upon for years of faithful service.

    Are you at all willing to ship the Mohawk RX-1?
    I am in Weatherford, TX 76087
    May not be reasonable cost to ship, but thought I'd ask.

    I have no problem shipping it except that I'm wheelchair bound right now. I have a broken leg and so it's not possible for me to carry an 85 lb radio :) I haven't heard from the gent that wants to pick up the Marauder, so it may still be available also. Need to re-edit my listing. Nice Indians at your operating position shown on

    Thanks for asking Jim. Not quite sure how we can work that out.

    I understand Brian. The cost of shipping west of the Mississippi may be too much... Thank you for your reply and comments. Finding a great condition Mohawk is tough. I'd like to have another Mohawk to lash up to the my Marauder in the shack. The One I have is lashed to the Apache & sharing the TR relay built is a lot of mess to have two transmitters lashed to one receiver. No rush to obtain a second Mohawk... Just another day in paradise.

    73 !
    Heal well & soon,
