Wanted: Non-Working Radios & Power Supplies

From Tom Richison, K5FRI

Wanted non-working radios & power supplies for a winter project. If you have a non-working radio and/or non-working power supply ready to be put it in trash can this could be of interest to you.

Part of my hobby in amateur radio is repair. With the winter months I will be inside all day and looking for projects to work on.

I would like to locate and retrieve non-working; 2 meter radios w/mic & power cord, non-working 440 MHZ radios w/mic & power cord, non-working HF radios w/ mic & power cord, non-working power supplies and non-working short wave receivers.

If you have a unit as described above, please email me with the manufacturer and model number. I will email you, back.

If you live in and around OKC and are willing to meet me on one of the interstates: I-44, I-240 and I -35, in S.W. OKC I will reimburse you $3.00 for your millage if I can use the unit.

If you live outside the OKC area email me with the manufacturer and model number. If I can use the unit, we will discuss arrangements to retrieve the unit.

Thank for reading this ad.
