FOR SALE posted 10/21/2018

Heathkit SB-200 Linear Amplifier in very good shape. Output is 550-600 watts running on 120v AC more if running on 240V AC.  As this was donated to the club I have given it several hours operating time and about 8 hours filament time. It’s clean with very few dings and scratches and will make a great addition to the ham shack.  Just one note–if you’re using a modern transceiver without a relay contact  to switch the amplifier relay.   A intermediate relay will be needed as the SB-200 has 120 volts on the relay line that will “smoke” a switching transistor.  This is very easy to do and there are several commercial outfits that sell a module.  Also since this was designed to be used with a tube transmitter it won’t have a 1:1 match so a antenna tuner MAY have to be used between the two unless there is a auto tuner in the transceiver.   $350.00   I don’t want to ship this but if no one purchases it I will list on eBay or other site before the end of November.   Contact Jim K4CGY 434-296-3044 or k4cgy@yahoo.com

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.
