A young non-ham friend recently received as a gift several radio related items
from a ham, who is a recent SK. I am trying to help him get fair value for
He has a standard Bird 43 and leather carrying case that both look as new. This
equipment is likely circa late 1970's/early 1980's, as the original owner was
not active beyond about 1985. This wattmeter is equipped with SO-239
He also has a set of Bird slugs which are in a Bird leather pouch. There are
are about 12 slugs and they range from 25 watts up to 10 KW. This set also
appears as new.
I would buy these myself, but they may be worth more to someone else than they
are to me. My friend just graduated from University and is getting married, so
my main concern is to see him get the best $$ for them.
Anyone care to offer a suggestion as to what this set might be worth today? I
know the technology has moved on in RF power measurement (LP-100 etc) but Bird
has been the standard for years.
