Hi Tom - -

Kilowatt Matchboxes show up at hamfests around here (Dallas/Ft
Worth/North Texas) in the $200-300 range typically, with the low power
tuner in the $90-125 range.  As someone else said, the meter doesn't
seem to add an awful lot to the price.  If you want to remove all those
darn screws to look inside it, check to see if all of the stator plates
of the variable capacitors are still there.  Some were occasionally
removed to make for easier tuning on the higher bands.  This is ok, but
may leave you a bit shy of capacitance on the lower bands.

Also, L.B. Cebik has a lot of excellent information on link coupled
tuners, including the Johnson Matchboxes on his web page at and
