TenTec accessory items For Sale:
TenTec 299 Voice synthesized frequency counter
This unit is used with the TenTec Omni 546 series A, B, C,
some Argonauts, Corsair, and others. It will work with
other rigs (such as the Triton), with minor mods to get
the right connections.
The 299 is used primarily for blind hams who can not read the
frequency readout on the transceiver. By pushing a button, it
will "speak" the frequency (to tenth of a KHz). A front panel
switch permits selection of the entire frequency, or you can
eliminate the MHz, and give only the KHz. There is also a
volume control on the front panel.
Of course it can also be used to give a "voice digital readout"
to a rig with an analog dial.
This particular unit is in great shape electrically. Cosmetically
it has some wear, especially close to the button that is pushed
to activate it. $ 190
