I have the following components to an old TMC wire antenna system and would
like to sell them, preferably as a package. But I will entertain separate
needs and make up a list if there is enough demand. I am researching as I
have time to put some kind of value on them. To a TMC enthusiast, it would
seem they would be attractive. Anyway, if you are interested, contact me and
be patient. I am on "digest mode" and very busy right now. My goal is to
generate some gas funds for a hamfest trip or two as well as to get the
components where they might be useful and appreciated. Some pictures are
available and will be sent if requested.
These parts were part of either two Rhombic antennas or one "V" shape
antenna. I can send a sample sketch of what an antenna set up would have
The question "how much" at this point is an open one. I don't know yet what
is reasonable to ask. The stuff might be worthless or it may be worth
something. Your own estimate is welcome. I do need two or three 7' Bud IEEE
open frame relay racks and would trade for same.
One item below (the coax) is probably a pick up only. All located in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana about 3 miles off the I-10 E/W Interstate.
Here is what I have:
(2 ea) TRK-500 TMC Antenna Balun boxes with 50 ohm input/100-200-600 ohm
output (Each TRK-500 has a large RG-164 size female connector and the matching
male connector is on it) (The female plate could be changed and an N style put
on it) one is very nice, the other had a gasket breach and will need to be
cleaned up; both need new weather gaskets)
(1 ea) Spare balun for above TRK-500
(2 ea) TER-500 Antenna Dissipators (Terminal end; one used with Rhombic, two
with "V" shape)
(2 ea) 40-50 foot (approx) lengths of Amphenol RG-164 coax, each with one
connector on one end (these could be spliced together using Scotchcast
2130) RG-164 has an HV rating of 10KV
(3 ea) 8' (eight foot) "Chance" fiberglass guy insulators; dowel pin knuckle
on each end
(4 ea) 4' (fout foot) "Chance" fiberglass guy ends (unfortunately 2 long 8'
units were cut in half) (these could be used for the Rhombic side
(2 ea) There are also two large roller inductors which I haven't figured out
whether they went with this material or not. 6 - 7" diameter, maybe 10 - 12
turns; US Navy class inductor tuners.
Again, some pictures are available on request (be patient). Feel free to
forward this email to any other appropriate group.
