Hey Joe:

I have been watching your search for the ideal "farm" rig.  I have an 
Argosy 525 Digital that would possibly suit your needs.  It looks 
purty good for a rig of its age.  Front panel is fine, top has a few 
small scratches in the paint, nothing big.  It puts out full 
power.  Has a couple of mods I have done.  I replaced the A.F. power 
pot, with a dual concentric pot so I could add RF gain, which it 
badly needs.  I also installed the 10 amp, fast acting circuit 
breaker in the rear panel, which is necessary when not using a Ten 
Tec power supply, to protect the finals from drawing too much 
current.    I would like $250.00 for the radio.  I have the matching 
Ten Tec PS as well, however, I always carried a small, surplus, rack 
mount PS that can usually be found at hamfests for $10.00 or 
less.  With the fast acting circuit breaker I have mounted in rear 
panel, you can use any 12/13.8 volt PS, and the radios finals will be 
protected from over current draw.    I can send pix, if desired?  73 Dub
