Shack cleaning prior to the Orlando Hamvention has uncovered an Argosy 525
that I rarely use anymore. I thought I would offer it on the reflector
before hauling it off next Friday.
It has the crystal calibrator and the 8 pole SSB filter in place of the
stock 4 pole one. It works great and will put out a bit more than 50 watts.
only problem I have noticed is that the S meter will sometimes stick to the
left and can be unstuck by a gentle tap. I did not notice this problem the
last time I used it, so perhaps it will go away with some additional air
The top panel has paint missing and someone added 4 sheet metal screws (I
think to use it with a mobile bracket). The front panel is not perfect but
the knobs are intact and all the lettering is readable with the 3.5 mark
being a bit faded. You can also see some cracks around the front panel
I will take $150.00 plus shipping from 32225. I can also deliver it to
Orlando next weekend.
