TenTec 243 remote VFO for Omni 545 and 546
This remote VFO is designed to operate with the early 
Omni series to provide a second VFO for operating "split".  
In addition to offering the normal split operations, it also 
permits one to receive on two frequencies simultaneously.  
Its styling matches the Omni, including the extruded ring 
around the bezel.

This particular VFO looks like it just came out of the box 
from TenTec.  There is not a scratch, dent, ding, or wear 
mark on it.  It looks perfect.  All bulbs work as well, and 
the PTO is nice and smooth.  Of course it operates fine 

Manual is included for $140.

ammeter on front. It works 100% and looks very good.

TenTec 299 Voice synthesized frequency read out
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 very minor wear.  $ 190 plus shipping from Florida.
