I have for sale several different 2 meter items.  Will describe them as
best as I can, and each one can be picked up in Lawton, OK or add shipping
costs to each one.  Here is what I have for sale:

1. Kenwood TM255A 2 meter all mode transceiver.  Quite possibly is the best
2 meter all mode ever made.  45 watts on high, and 5 watts on low. It is in
very good condition physically.  Only issue is that the VFO encoder shaft
is loose.  It still works and there is a sub VFO know also you can use to
change frequency with.  It comes with a power cord terminated in
powerpoles, a copy of the manual, the hand mic, and a mobile mounting
bracket. Asking $375.

2. Down East Microwave 144-28 transverter.  Currently set for 5 watts in on
10 meters for 25 watts out on 2m.  It can be set to take up to 10 watts
in.  Antenna connector is an N connector, and it is set up for separate
TX/RX in lines, but can be modified for a common TX/RX in line.  It comes
with a powercord terminated in powerpoles, and a copy of the manual.  This
is the older model transverter, not the current one, but it works fine.
They sell new for $479, I am asking $250.

3. Brand new SSB Electronics MHP-145 mast mounted preamp.  Rated at 1.5KW
power handling.  This preamp is specially designed for EME work but would
do fine for terrestrial work as well.  You can read more about it at:

These sell new for $615.  This is new in the box, I am asking $515 for it.

4. Brand new SSB Electronics DCW-2004-B sequencer.  This model is rated for
6m-70cm.  Great for controlling preamps, amps, transverters for proper
order of operation.  These sell new for $165.  I am asking $110.  You can
read more about it at

I can take paypal/check/MO.  I will have a flexradio 1500 (perfect for
driving the 2m transverter) and an SSB electronics 23cm 10 watt transverter
listed for sale shortly also.
