High Power Antenna Tuner 

This TenTec high power antenna tuner will do it all!
It uses an "L" network instead of the "T" network.
This means that there is only one correct match. With the "T"
network, there are many places that will give a 1:1 SWR, but
only one of these positions is best. With the "L" network, this
is not a problem, and results in a tuner that is much more efficient.

It will easily handle full legal power, and has a roller inductor
so one can get an exact match over any of the HF bands,
including WARC bands.
It also has a balun for use with twin lead.

This is not only a tuner. It also has a four position antenna
switch built in, plus an illuminated wattmeter with 200 and
2000 watt positions, and an SWR bridge.

This particular tuner works 100%, and looks close to new. 
I can not find a scratch on it. With paper work for $325.

HF wattmeter / SWR Bridge:

Micronta 21-520 A, HF wattmeter with two large meters
This is an HF wattmeter that covers from 3 to 30 MHz, with 
full scale power readings of 10, 100, and 1000 watts.
Two LARGE meters -- one reads forward power and one 
reads reflected power -- both at the same time. This gives 
the same info as some of the cross needle meters, but many 
people find it is easier to read.
It has a remote sensor, with about 3 feet of cable to connect 
to the meter itself.
This particular meter works fine, and looks like new. It is 
still in its original box. $55

Regular hand microphone
Electret Condenser microphone
Generic Black mic, with gray PTT bar. Requires polarizing 
voltage. $25

Vibroplex "Brass Racer Iambic" CW Paddle
The Brass Racer Iambic is unique in that there are no 
springs in the design. Tension on the paddle is infinitely 
adjustable through the use of magnets. The Brass Racer 
Iambic is a convenient, keyer paddle unit crafted from 
solid brass with a lacquer coated brushed finish 
mounted on a hardwood base. 
This one works great, is in very nice condition, and 
includes cord and paper work for $110.

Cable for paddles
This cable is about 3 feet long, and has 1/4 inch stereo
connector on the end, like used by most rigs. It looks
great. $8

As above, but 1/8 inch plug. $8

Cable for straight key
Similar to cable for paddles, but has a mono 1/4 inch
phone plug on it, as is used with a straight key. $5

As above, but 1/8 inch plug. $5

Heavy duty power supply 
Pyramid PS-35
This supply is good for 32 Amps Constant or 35 Amps Surge.
The output voltage is adjustable over a 12 to 15 volt range 
with a multi turn pot. It has crowbar over voltage protection,
short circuit & thermal protection and features a pair of nice 
large edgewise meters to measure output voltage and output 
current. There is an internal fan. This is a very healthy, heavy 
duty supply!
This particular unit works 100% and looks very close to new.

Expanded Scale AC Voltmeter
This is an AC Voltmeter with an expanded scale. It reads 
from 0 to 150 volts AC, but the scale is expanded so that 
one can read in the 120 V area easier. The middle of the 
scale is about 95 volts. It is ideal to have in line constantly, 
to check your line voltage. This is a Weston Model 476, 
and is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, with 3 mounting holes.
Of course it works fine, and looks fine also. $18 

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
