    Seller Notes: “Fully Functional Micom-2TS SSB/ALE radio, driving an SGC
    SG-500 500 Watt linear amplifier both powered by a Lambda Alpha 1500W power
    supply and all enclosed together in a 19" drawer.”
    Micom 2TS made in Israel: SGC SG-500 and Lamda Power Supply: USA
    Supported Modes: ALE, AM, SSB, CW
    Model: MOBAT 500E
    Country/Region of Manufacture: Israel
    Frequency Band(s): 1.6 MHz Tx, 100 KHz-30 MHz Rx, HF
    Max. Output Power: 500W SSB CW ALE
    Brand: Micom/Motorola

    The transceiver is a complete unit that includes a Micom-2TS SSB radio,
    driving an SGC SG-500 amplifier both powered by a Lambda Alpha 1500W power
    supply and all enclosed together in a 19" drawer. The control head and
    speaker are mounted on the front of the drawer but can be used remotely from
    the cabinet via the control cable which is approximately 17' long.

    More in depth descriptions of each component can be found at there manufacturer's
    websites: mobat-usa, sgcworld, and tdk-lambda, ...all 3 end in dot com.

    The SGC SG-500 SmartPowerCube 500 Watt linear amplifier is fully automated and protected by microprocessor control. This circuitry dynamically monitorsall amplifier parameters, and provides adjustments and protection against high VSWR, under voltage, over current, and high temperature conditions.

    Current- protection against over current condition (exceeding 60 amps) and
    current imbalance between amplifier modules (exceeding 20%). When one of
    these two conditions exists, the amplifier turns off.

    Volt - protection against amplifier under/over voltage (14+/-3 VDC).
    VSWR – when a sampled VSWR exceeded 4:1 and the power reflected back to the
    amplifier is higher than acceptable, the amplifier turns off.

    Temp - protection against over temperature condition.

    Atten – as input RF power level increases beyond 60-70 watts, the
    attenuation increases automatically. The Attenuate remains engaged until the
    input drops to 30 watts.

    ALC Control- provides adjustable ALC feedback voltage. A positive voltage is
    present on the Amplifier line for use with the equipped transceiver for ALC
    input control.

    PTT keying mode and Band input filter selection is enabled automatically.
    Band switching time is typically 100 msec or less. This automated capability
    is ideal for remote or unattended operating site application.

    See photo for more detail of this used but perfectly functioning 500 watt
    base station. The photos not only show the components of this (MilSpec /
    Government Issue) base station, but also the almost bullet proof
    construction techniques used. The cabinet has a few scuffs and a couple of
    small dings, but is otherwise very nice with all hardware in place and
    waiting to be mounted into your 19" rack or set on it's own table in your
    shack. The interior of the unit is of dirt & bugs and
    remains cool when operating...even at full power...due to the dual fans on
    the power supply and also on the bottom of the chassis cabinet.

    To protect the control head / speaker during shipping, I will remove it and
    wrap it in foam and place it inside the unit; its a 5 minute job to mount it
    back in place. That way the HD aluminum cabinet protects everything.

    FREE SHIPPING will be via United Parcel Service (UPS). Shipping weight: 75

    This system was last used on the air on 17m, 11-24-17 and is working
    perfectly; The documentation seen in one of the photos will be included
    (Micom 500E & SG-500 SmartPowerCube, and much more... ) but there is no
    owners manual.

    (External Power/SWR meter not included.)

    Note: this unit is for sale elsewhere also, don't drag your feet and miss out.

    Please look at the revised photo, and remove your caution notice from my listing. Thank you.

    I have looked at your revised photo. I am not seeing your physical callsign in the photo with the radio.

    The radio is packed for shipment. I'm not going to unpack it to place a "physical" sign with my call on it in front of the radio to take a picture of it. It is a large radio weighing 75# that took me nearly an hour to pack securely. Would you be happy with a photo of the radio packed for shipment with my call in front of it? :)

    I appreciate your attempt to shield buyers from unscrupulous sellers, believe me. However, I have stipulated payment via PayPal, so a buyer will be protected by PayPal's policies. I am not requesting, nor do I want Friends and Family payment. I'll gladly pay PayPal's commission for the protection they provide both the buyer and seller. So, in this case, I don't really see a need for what is demanded to comply with the rules of this forum; PayPal's protection is real, not just wishful thinking. :)

    Thanks for your commitment to stamping out fraud in the Amateur radio marketplace. Very much appreciated, despite being imperfect in this case.

    Best regards,

    Hey, I've got an idea that may satisfy you.

    In the video at this link: you'll see me calling CQ on the radio in question. While it isn't a "physical" sign, it is a verbal indication that I do in fact possess the radio. If I could upload the video on this forum, I'd be happy to do that.

    Thanks, but still need to see the pic posted here that includes your callsign.

    So, you'll accept a photo of the shipping box with a placard bearing my call placed in front of the packed box?
