A little more realistic-- it is more important that the L7 has 160 meters than 
if it has 10 meters where a amplifier is not often needed.  As I said earlier 
this is a "collectors" item not, some splattered high dollar  egg. Those who do 
not love drake will have a somewhat lower opinion of its value.   A newer more 
modern unit is a better more logical choice for operating .
  If you like Drake equipment and are willing to do the Restoration work as 
needed then there is no difference.  There is litle benifit to sell a working 
home tested L7 and buy a Ameritron.
  The Power supply should be sold with the amplifier as a complete working unit.
  Also this unit is in England where these units are even more scarce.  This 
makes the value higher than in the US where they show up every few months.  The 
Units currently on EBay should be considered as non-working.  The value is much 
higher if the unit is in current[this means yesterday] use.  There are also 
several drake lovers web sites with lots of information. 
   One likely would get more dough selling it on the european ebay rather than 
the ebay us.  One needs to check to be sure.  It only costs a little to list a 
auchion with a high reserve.  Let it go and see where  it goes. A reserve of 
$2000 would give lots of actual information at little cost. And you get to do 
it twice at the same cost.
