I'm answering off the reflector, so as not to mess up any offers you may

The 200 VFO is rare and you can probably get up to $200 for it. There's a
ham in Laurens, SC who has the matching TX-100 and would love to get hold of
that VFO. Would probably pay a lot for it. His name is Glenn and his call is
WA4AOS. His e-mail address is wa4aos@aol.com.

Hope this helps.

73, Winston  K4CWQ
