TenTec Items For Sale:

TenTec 217 narrow CW 500 hz Crystal Filter
It can be used in the Omni 546 (series B and C), Omni V, VI, 
Argosy, or as roofing filters in the Orion I.  It is for the 9 MHz IF.  
Like new with paper work for $70.

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, but can be used 
by anyone as a "digital readout."  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  be used to give a "voice digital readout"
to a rig with an analog dial.  It can also be used as a talking 
frequency counter.
This particular unit is in great shape electrically.  Cosmetically
it is extremely good with some very minor wear.  $ 190 

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
