    For sale Johnson Viking 500 Transmitter. I bought a large lot of equipment, and just don't have the desire to restore this fine piece of equipment.

    It's complete with tubes, but missing the sheet metal cover for the power supply. The power supply has modern caps installed, as well as a couple Peter Dahl transformers (I think one is a choke). The front panel has some paint scratched, so be aware that this is not a pristine unit. There is evidence of arcing on the plate caps.

    I have not applied power and don't have the desire to do so. A careful restoration should be done before putting this into operation. It's a beast for sure, and pretty rare. So don't miss this chance to own one.

    Asking $1,250

    call or text 616 three two two 6439

    Will need to be picked up, as it weighs around 150 lbs. Located in Grand Rapids, MI

    Please feel free to make me an offer, I am interested in a quick sale and might be asking to much. Don't worry, I won't be offended. These where included in a large lot of radio equipment that I purchased, in a buy it all type deal. I was after the Collins stuff, so this needs to go to someone that will appreciate it.

    I am in luck, the previous owner called me today as he found the power supply sheet metal!
