    Here is an excellent example of a classic clean TenTec Jupiter 538 transceiver, 100 watts with 160 through 10 meters that is in excellent working and physical condition. This one has the chrome knobs on it and I can't seem to find out if this was an option or something aftermarket, but does make this look like a premium model? This is another one of my office stored items that I've displayed for years as it was one of the cleanest Jupiters I have come across...
    This one works great (internal speaker not working) and has one of the best “Noise Reductions” I have ever used. It is in original stock condition and includes a new serial to USB interface cable which I have never got around to using. I also have the DC power cord, hand microphone and original owners manual . Radio is from a non smoking home...

    Almost ready to buy, is the multifunction knob still working well? Any issues at all, I am interested in using it primarily for cw. Please email or if you can call 951-797-0106

    The Jupiter looks very nice. Is this the same radio that was pictured in your Jeep? Have you tried to repair the speaker problem?
    Still thinking about the Jupiter.

    The knobs are probably from an Omni V

    -Any news on the blue screen vs green screen Jupiter?
    -Does this have an auto-tuner installed?

    Also do you know if 'ten tech' is still in business? I know there was a lot of moment in the last two years...Just wanted to ask in case you need parts...(RKR, Alpha, RF Concepts...Ten Tech bla bla bla)

    This is the green screen series.
    No internal antenna tuner.
    Both the rear external speaker and headphone connections work fine, all I ever used...
    Radio in my Jeep was an Icom 746Pro.
    Hope this helps and 73'

    Ten Tec is still in business --- certainly their service department is in operation

    The Chrome Knob Kit was an option available from Ten-Tec and includes a weighted VFO knob for better feel.
