TenTec RF Speech Processor, Power Transformer, Cables,
and other miscellaneous accessories For Sale:

TenTec 234 RF Speech Processor:

The 234 is the predecessor to the 715 speech processor.
It matches the early Omni 545/546 Series A, B, and C rigs, Delta,
and others of that era, but of course can be used with any rig,
since it simply inserts in the microphone line.

This is an extremely effective unit, typically providing about a
6 db increase in talk power.  That is about the same as a linear
amplifier -- at much less cost.

It has both a 4 pin plug and a 1/4 inch stereo jack for input,
and needs 13 V DC at low current. With paperwork for $150.

Power Transformer for TenTec Hercules 444 HF linear amplifier:

This power transformer is used with the older Hercules 444 HF
linear amplifier (not the newer Hercules II).  It includes the
molex plug, so that it will simply plug into the 444.  This is
a "spare" transformer that was never used.

The Hercules 444 provided 48 to 50 volts DC at up to 25 amps
to produce about 1000 to 1200 watts DC input in order to get
600 watts of RF out.  This transformer is roughly a 7 inch cube,
so is a very healthy transformer of approximately 1250 VA, if
someone wants to use it for another project.  $75

Cable for Hercules 444 Amplifier

This cable is used to connect the Hercules (Original 444) to
its power supply.  Heavy duty cable, with heavy Molex type
connectors on each end.  Nice condition.  $25

Power Cord for most of the older TenTec rigs
This cord has the 4 pin "Molex like" inline power connector
on one end.  About 4 feet long.  Like new.  $15

VOX board for TenTec 262 Power supply
Ready to plug in to replace your defective board.

Original box for TenTec 604 keyer including the insert. $5

Communications Speakers:

Realistic 21-549 A
This one is about 4 inches square but only about 2 inches
deep. It is rated for 5 watts, has an 8 ohm impedance, and
is listed as a 300 to 3000 Hz frequency response, making it
ideal for communications. 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) mono plug. It
is black in color, looks great, and sounds great. $18

Vanco SPB-5
Appears to be the same at above, but with a Vanco label.
Also includes gimbal mount. $15

Vanco SPB-6
Similar to SPB-5 above, but is considered a noise
cancelling speaker. 10 Watt rating. Still in original
box, new. $18

Cables for CW keyers and keys:

Cable for paddles
About 3 feet long, and with a 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) stereo
connector on the end, like used by most rigs. $8
As above, but 1/4 inch plug. $8

Cable for straight key
About 3 feet long, with a mono 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) phone
plug on it, as used with a straight key. $5
As above, but 1/4 inch plug. $5

I also have many other accessories available such as many
different types of microphones, HTs, VHF and UHF rigs,
antennas, etc. Just too many things to list here.
Please e-mail your requests.

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
