I’m selling off some Amateur Radio equipment listed on this page. If you are anywhere near Ham Lake, MN we can conduct the transaction in person which gives you the opportunity to try out the equipment before handing over any money. Otherwise we can Skype of Facetime to show the equipment working.

All equipment on this page is working and in good condition. I want you to be happy with it! If for some reason it doesn’t meet your needs or if there’s a problem, we’ll work something out. But please check it out as soon as you get it to make sure everything’s okay.

Yaesu FT-990 160-10 meters 100 watt HF rig.

Includes the AC power supply and 500 Hz CW filter options. It has the most current firmware.

Very nice wider range internal antenna tuner  that actually uses variable capacitors rather than relays.

Includes manual, official printed Yaesu service manual, MD-100 desk mic, and headset/mic w/foot switch.

Fully operational with no issues.

This is one rugged radio! It is a high-end full analog design similar to the FT-1000MP. The final transistors are rated at 250 watts output! I like that it has an internal power supply. It’s a bit heavy, but all you need is one handle and you have everything you need except for the antenna. It’s great for Field Day and other high RF environments. A Yaesu classic.


GAP Titan DX 80-10 Vertical Antenna with WARC bands SOLD

No radials required (it’s true). Really smokes 40 and 20 meters. Not so great on 30, but works. Total garbage on 80. So in reality it’s a great antenna on 40, 20, 17 which also performs well on 15, 12, and 10.

Includes the GAP tilt mount.


Heathkit SB-221 Linear Amplifier

Includes Harbach mods: Updated power supply/metering circuit, FET keying circuit (low current and low voltage), plate circuit (to minimize self-oscillation and provide coverage of WARC bands).

Wiried for 120V but may be wired for 240V.

Covers 10 meters along with 17 and 12.

Approx 800 watts carrier out (120V) or 1,000 carrier out (240V).

Includes original instruction manuals (both SB-220 and SB-221) along with additional information regarding the updates.

Includes PTT cable for Yaesu and Icom.

Tubes are in good shape.

$650 – local only due to weight
