Yaesu YM-34  $ 40

Nice condition desk mic from early 1980's. Labels worn off but works well. NOTE: Has had electret element and preamp board added, and wired for Icom.  (No idea why VE6BV did this, but that was Hellmut...)

Late 1950's generation grid dip meter, with original coils. Recently updated with new electrolytics & cleaned. Working pretty well.


Icom IC-745 $ 175

Has a couple of minor quirks, but transmits and receives OK. A bit of rust on metal. Can include spare parts (PA, RF board etc) from another 745 if you want them (extra shipping cost tho).
