         Ten-Tec PM3A QRP rig 40 & 20 meters
           Includes manual with servicing info . . . $125US

         Price includes shipping to Canada or US (lower 48 states)

The rig is in very good condition for it's age. All the labeling is good.
There are some scratches. The worst one is from a previous owner, who's
drill slipped when he was drilling a hole for a mini head phone jack.
Nothing major, depends on what angle you look at the rig and does not affect
the way it works. It was recently checked out by a ham who runs a local
service shop. He told me it is perfect working order
and was surprised by the sensitivity of the receiver.


                 QRP CW Transceiver, 5w on 40 and 20m (with full band coverage).
                 Synchronous direct conversion receiver with dual-gate MOSFET
                 (receives CW, SSB and AM), slide-rule dial, sidetone and
                  break in keying.

                            POWER-MITE  - PM3A
                              (from Manual)


                The power-Mite 3 and 3A are self-contained CW transceivers
             ing 40 and 20 meters.  The receiver is comprised of a variable
             lator operating on the received frequency, a mixer and high
gain audio
             amplifier.  The received signal is converted directly to audio
where a
             filter eliminates undesirable signals, and then amplified to
             level by a high gain audio amplifier.  The variable oscillator
             7.0 - 7.3 MHz for 40 meter operation and is doubled to 14.0 to
             MHz to cover 20 meters.

                The transmitter  driven from the same oscillator-multiplier
             for receiving, has an isolation stage, driver and push-pull
             amplifier.  It is keyed in the buffer stage.  The output
circuit is
             a Pi network to match 50-75 ohm unbalanced loads.  A side-tone
             lator with  variable frequency and volume is keyed long with
             buffer stage.


                Frequency range:           BAND            RANGE
                                          40          7.0- 7.3 MHz
                                                20         14.0-14.6 MH2

                        Size:  4" H, 10-1/8" W, 7-1/2" D.  Shipping weight  4

                Power:    12 volts 30 ma. on receive, 460 ma. on transmit
                  Semiconductor devices:         1  Dual gate MOSFET
                                                 1  Integrated circuit
                                                10  Silicon transistors
                Types of reception:      CW - SSB - AM
                        Sensitivity:  Less than one microvolt  provides readable
                    Antenna input:  50-75 ohms
