FOR SALE==================FOR SALE===============FOR 

Yaesu FT-736R Transceiver with 6 Meters, 2 Meters, 432, and 1296. 
Includes manual and microphone. Good condition, with some shelf wear. 
Purchased in an estate sale from original owner's wife. Very little use, 
he was a doctor and didn't have much time to get on the air. I used it 
briefly during September contest last year, then packed it away as my 
"backup" rig to my Icom IC-910H.

HIGH POWER AMP FOR 1296 1296! Built by Merle Cox, W7YOZ in November of 
2012. This 11 1/4" X 17 1/4" rack mount amplifier includes a DEMI 
2370PA, 2 DOW-KEY 12VDC input and output coaxial relays, a NARDA 
microwave 20 db directional coupler and detector (this samples power to 
display on the output power meter, which is located on the front face of 
the rack mount). It also includes T/R time delay (which can be varied), 
and rear panel TR control.

Hookup is nearly as simple as adding a "brick" amplifier on the lower 
bands. I ran a short piece of flex from my IC-910H into a Bird wattmeter 
to measure input power, connected the phono plug T/R to a short cable 
running to the DIN plug on the back of the Icom, and connected the antenna.

Maximum power is achieved with about 6.5 watts on input power, with 
measured output power at 64 watts! That's a lot of power on 1296. 
Perfect for DXing, contests, or even EME.

The build quality is very professional. Enamel gray, with toggle 
switches, super neat wiring, labeled connections, etc. 12 VDC is via 
PowerPole cables, rig input and antenna output connections are all Type 
N. It even includes an instruction sheet provided by Merle to make 
set-up easy for an "appliance operator" like myself. $750

connnectors and gel cell batteries. Everything you need for portable 
operation. Go out roving with a friend and make great contacts on a new 
band. $400 for the pair and accessories. SOLD SOLD SOLD

Advanced Receiver Research TR24GA 24 GHz wideband FM transceiver. Also 
included with this are several 24 GHz waveguides. My plan was to convert 
one of the gunplexers and get on 24 GHz...but who am I kidding?
No time for projects like this on the horizon. Add 24 GHz to your shack. 
Like the TR10GA above, these are wideband FM (old school) but hey it 
counts for both VUCC and contest points. Add a new band at a low price.
