I am cleaning the shack and going through a lot of stuff that I no  
longer want or need.

I put a bunch up on that famous auction site the other day.

But before I put this one up there, I'll see if there is anyone here  
that would be interested

what I have is a Ten Tec Delta II. With a problem.

first off the display, backlight work great. The EL lamp has been  

The PA was repaired and puts out 100+ watts on all bands.

Now as for the problem...

The BFO or one of the other oscillators, has an problem. Sometime  
there's injection, sometimes there not. When the thing decided to  
work, the radio receives and transmits just fine. when the bfo  
decides to stop, the receiver will only pick up AM (no bfo required)  
and of course there's no TX without the BFO.

I've looked and looked and shelved this radio. When I dig it out, I  
can't get the thing to fault to track down the problem. Thinking I  
had found it the last time on the bench, I 'd put in in line and then  
ten minutes later it would quit. Putting it back on the bench and  
start digging into it, it would start working again. Agggrrrrr!!

It seems if you just touch one or two of the pcbs on the bottom, the  
thing pops up... I've looked and poked and poked some more and I just  
got bored and put it back on the shelf.

I got $275 in it with what parts I have installed to fix the pa and  
the first mixers.

I'll help with some of the shipping too.

anyone interested pop me a email directly

It goes to the auction in the sky sunday night if it does not leave  
the shack before then
