========= NEW ITEMS & MOST RECENT LISTINGS as of 9/18/2018


EXPLORER 14,TRIBAND BEAM,10/15/20M  this is a new item that was in the last donation to the club.  It’s new as I opened the box and removed the elements so I could get it in the car as the box wouldn’t fit.  It cost new $629.00 and for you the club is asking $395.00.  This is a real bargain if you’re looking for a small beam. It’s a four element though the driven element consist of three elements.  It’s on a short 14 foot boom so will fit on a small tower or roof tripod.  The box with all the small parts had been opened but doesn’t appear that anything is missing.  If so all parts are still available as this is a current item.  Once again only $395.00 and contact Jim K4CGY@ yahoo.com or 434-296-3044 for information.


Flex 1500 SDR transceiver with microphone, software and manuals.  It’s very clean and looks to be in perfect condition.  $485.00
HP-608c RF signal generator  10 MHz-420 MHz.  Works but needs some work on the metering   $25.00
Boonton Q-meter Model 260A  Good condition, calibration looks to be right on.    $45.00                                
    Commercially built but unknown a 15m & 20m trap dipole.  Looks unused and checked $20.00
