    I've got a project in the works and need to clear out some unused kit to help fund it. I am offering my very clean LNR Mountain Topper MTR-3B 2.5 watt 20-30-40-meter CW transceiver, Palm Pico Paddle iambic paddle key, and near-new Elecraft T1 automatic antenna tuner along with cables, rechargeable 9v batteries with charger and carry cases, and zipper clamshell cases - all as a ready-to-go ultralight QRP CW package. This is the second one of these Mountain Topper kits that I have listed here, this one was assembled after I sold the first one last Spring. However, I use my Elecraft KX2 for all travel ops now so this one never gets used.

    The Mountain Topper is in very clean condition and works perfectly. It operates on the 20, 30, and 40-meter amateur bands. Max rated output is 2.5 watts. The radio works on 12 through 6 volts DC, and a standard household 9-volt battery works great. Any DC supply source that doesn't exceed 12 volts max (such as one of the Bioenno 9-volt LiFePO4 batteries) will work just fine for extended operation. The radio is completely stock, except for the Palm Pico Paddle mounting bracket that is attached to the right hand side of the case with a slightly longer case screw and washer in the factory case screw hole. The paddle perfectly complements the radio and works great. I use it mounted in place on the radio, but it snaps out of the base easily and could be used separately with a longer cable.

    I'm also including a near-new Elecraft T1 autotuner that was purchased new from Elecraft. It is in pristine condition, has never been used outdoors, and works perfectly. It operates on a standard household 9-volt battery that can be carried reversed in the case when not in use. It is rated for between 0.5 and 20 watts and operates on 160 through 6 meters.

    I'm including 3 cables - a BNC-to-BNC jumper with RCA adapter, a homemade short 3.5mm-to-2.5mm cable for the Pico paddle, and a power cable that fits a standard household 9-volt battery. There are two padded zipper clamshell cases - the larger hold the radio and the tuner, the smaller holds the cables. There are 8 rechargeable 9v batteries that have been fully charged once and never used, plus their wall charger and 2 hardshell carry cases. The factory manuals are also included. Everything will come very securely packed and insured.

    Current list on the Mountain Topper is $299, the Palm Pico Paddle is $119 (from GigaParts), and the T1 autotuner is $159 for a total of $577.00. I am asking $350.00 for everything, including insured shipping to your door via USPS Priority Mail in the United States. PayPal only, please, my email address in on my QRZ bio page.
