This transceiver is in fair cosmetic condition, but certainly far from perfect. The cabinet has it’s share of scuffs/scratches and is relatively dusty from storage. The faceplate is in good condition. Also, it appears complete and free of modification. We briefly powered it on and the tube filaments lit up, however no further testing has been done. This will make an excellent candidate for restoration! This equipment is part of a very large silent-key estate we recently acquired, all of which has been in a storage unit for approximately 15 years. We have not done any testing beyond what is specifically mentioned above. There are a few reasons for this, but it essentially comes down to the fact that they almost always need some level of service and it’s simply not cost effective to pay our technician to spend time going through them. It may or may not need components replaced (caps, resistors, tubes, etc), controls cleaned/lubricated, alignment, and so on. Unless you are qualified and capable of working on this unit yourself, or are willing to pay a qualified individual to do the work for you, we suggest you revisit the idea of whether this is the right equipment for you. This item will be packaged using our InstaPak foam-in-bag system, ensuring the utmost protection! Bags filled with a chemical mixture expand around your item and harden to form a protective, yet forgiving, foam barrier. IMPORTANT: You will only receive what is photographed. If it is not shown in the photos, it is not included in the sale. This includes items such as original packaging, accessories, manuals, and so on. Speaking of manuals, it is strongly recommended that you thoroughly read it before attempting to operate the equipment. If a manual is not included in this sale, you should download one.

This TR-3 is in fair cosmetic condition. The cabinet has some dings and dents (see photos), and the copper chassis has oxidized. The good news is that the faceplate looks good and the dial is in great shape, not discolored from UV exposure. All controls turn smoothly. We’ve powered it up, and while we can see the 0A2 tube light up, I don’t think the others are. No further testing has been performed. This’ll make a good restoration piece or parts unit!

Cosmetically, this radio looks pretty good. The faceplate is in excellent condition, and the cabinet has normal wear with the expected scratches and scuffs. The copper chassis is a little oxidized as you would expect. It was missing the 6EH5, 6HS6, and 12AX7 tubes when we acquired it. It powers on, but obviously with tubes missing we aren’t going to get a signal. We don’t have those tubes available so we can’t test further.

This transmitter is in very good cosmetic condition. The faceplate looks terrific and the cabinet shows little wear. I’m not a Drake guy, but from what I can tell it’s original and unmodified. We powered it up and the tube filaments illuminated. Beyond that, no testing has been done. As you can see in the photos, we are including a copy of the original user manual. This equipment came from the estate of a ham operator and has been tucked away in a storage unit for approximately 15 years. We have not done any testing beyond what is specifically mentioned above.

This old transmitter is in good cosmetic condition. It’s not perfect as there are some scratches in the cabinet and the chassis is dusty, but overall we think it looks good for it’s age. From what we can tell, it’s unmodified and all original. You can see one of the large caps has started to leak under the chassis. Included in the sale is a photocopy of the user manual. This unit is believed to have not been used in many years, likely decades, and with this in mind we have made no attempt to power-on this unit or test in any way.

This R-4C “works”, but needs some attention to get it in top-top shape. It receives a signal, but the pots/switches are extremely scratchy and need to be cleaned with contact cleaner. The chassis is very dirty and there’s a good amount of dust inside. The faceplate looks good, however there’s a good-sized dent on the back (see photos). This will make a great restoration piece. Also, please note that this receiver originally had the noise-blanker installed. This has been removed for another project, but you’ll need to make up a jumper for the socket, else the receiver won’t work at all.

This is a nice amplifier. It has some scratches on the cabinet but looks good overall, particularly the faceplate with really looks great. Also included in the sale is a reproduction of the manual. With a line voltage of 230VAC, the plate voltage sat at 1850VDC in CW position. With 45 watts keyed-down on 40 meters we measured 500 watts out, which is about right as the manual calls for 1000W PEP and we can assume 50-60% efficiency. The tubes are getting extremely hot (orange in color) when we put the amp into high-voltage position. The L-4B was originally designed to only work with Drake equipment. This one has since been modified to work with other transceivers, and we used an IC-706MKIIG when testing rather than Drake equipment. Perhaps this won’t happen when using Drake gear? Bias current may need to be adjusted. There may be something else going on that we aren’t aware of. This item will be packaged using our InstaPak foam-in-bag system, ensuring the utmost protection!

This transceiver is in fantastic physical condition. The faceplate looks amazing, and the cabinet does as well with the exception of one spot towards the rear (see photo). This appears to be some sort of adhesive residue and may be able to be cleaned up. It includes a Shure microphone, manual (pretty beat up), and even the original receipts! The radio was acquired from a gentleman downsizing his station. The radio works, but it’s putting out low power (approximately 80 watts). Some new tubes may very well solve the problem, but it’s not impossible that there may be something else going on.
