Ten-Tec Pegasus Model 550 HF transceiver
Covers 160 thru 10 meters, although it can be used
with a transverter for 6 and 2 meters, and will display
the 6 or 2 meter frequency on the screen.
It will transceive SSB, CW, FM, or AFSK, and receive
AM. Of course it is also ideal for digital modes such
as PSK31, pactor, etc. It has 2 VFOs and 1000s of
Memories, and full break-in on CW.
This rig is very close to a "software definable" rig, in
that most of the rig is controlled from the computer and
computer program. There are no knobs on the rig.
Everything is on the computer screen. It makes for
a rig that can be changed by changing the software.
DSP filtering is provided, that is quite effective, so
no crystal filters are needed. Bandwidths go from
300 Hz to 8 KHz, with 1.5 to 1 shape factors, or better.
This particular unit is in excellent condition, with latest
firmware. It looks and performs almost like new. No
scratches, dents, or dings. TenTec operating control
software is included in both 16 bit and 32 bit operating
systems, so you can use an older version of Windows
or the latest version. Of course it has the power cord
and complete manual with it. It needs 13 V DC at
about 20 amps to operate. In its original box for $625
