I've thought long and hard about selling my Corsair II station. In
fact I had it for sale several years ago, but I chickened out after
getting flack from some members of the list that selling it would be a
mistake. Well, this time I need to make room in the ham shack for some
new toys. I'm serious about selling the station described below.
TenTec Corsair II station consisting of:
• Corsair II transceiver (model 561, SN/58001759)
• Remote VFO (model 263G, SN/26300541)
• Power Supply/Speaker (model 260, SN/01202)
• 705 Desk mic
All items are in physically excellent condition (no dings or dents);
front panels are beautiful; cabinets have a few minor scratches.
Operates as it should (except for 20 meter output which is 50-60W
depending on load impedance. About 95-105W out on all other bands). It
has never been used or stored in a smoking environment.
Some important points:
• Both PTOs (Corsair II and remote vfo) are silky smooth and very
stable after short warm-up.
• The Corsair II is loaded with optional crystal filters - in addition
to the 2 standard filters, included are:
TenTec 1.8kHz 8 pole (model 288)
TenTec 500Hz 6 pole (model 285)
InRad 250Hz 8 pole (model 751)
• The 263G remote vfo allows dual receive operation.
I have consistently received excellent audio and keying reports with
this rig. I would be happy to schedule a QSO with anyone interested in
hearing this rig first hand. The receiver is very sensitive and quiet,
and handles strong adjacent signals as well as many of today’s best
rigs (as attested by Sherwood Engineering reports). I can also have
you listen to the receiver over the landline.
I’m selling these items as a complete station (will not split at this
time). As one of my backup stations, it is rarely used and I would
like to make room on the shelf for new toys.
Asking $600.00 + shipping cost to lower 48 for all of the above items.
Will ship in 3 original TT boxes + new box for mic. Photos are
available on request.
