I am selling the following equipment to help recover some of my personal expenses from the ARISS project. If anyone is interested, please let me know. I will place it on e-ham at the end of the week. I would much rather sell it locally than deal with shipping and collecting funds remotely. All equipment is approximately 6-7 months old and purchased new unless otherwise stated. It all works as it should.
M2 SatPak 2 – This was on the school roof for 6 months during our ARISS project. This is a package comprised of a 2mCP14 and a 436CP30 satellite antennas. The first is a 14 element cross-polarized 2m Yagi, the second is a 30 element cross-polarized 70cm Yagi. The package also includes the 11 foot heavy duty fiberglass boom and mounting clamps. Retail is $647. I am asking $500 for the package. If you want to run just one cable, I’ll throw in a VHF/UHF diplexer for $25.
M2 SatPak 1 – It was on the school roof for 6 months during our ARISS project. This is the 2m and 70cm eggbeater satellite antenna combo. It includes a crossboom and clamps for mounting. These are stationary antennas that cover horizon to horizion with more gain on the horizon where it is needed. They are very wide-banded antennas and can be used for NOAA weather satellite on 137mhz as well as the amateur V/U and U/V satellites. Retail is $378. I am asking $275 for them. If you only want to run one cable to your shack, I’ll throw in a diplexer for $25.
Yaesu G5500 dual axis rotator. You will need this to point the above Yagi’s. It is a heavy duty rotor. I got this 2 years ago but it was only installed last November and was on the roof for 6 months during our ARISS project. It has been indoors the rest of the time. It looks perfect and works great, as does the control box. This sells for $730 new. I am asking $625 for it and will throw in 150 foot control cables for free..
LVB Tracker – This interfaces between the Yaesu G5500 rotator controller and a USB port on the computer. It allows the computer running a program such as SatPC32 ($55 value included) to send positioning commands to the antenna to track the appropriate Satellites. Works great! Used only during the last six months during our ARISS contact. I paid $220 for this interface and will sell it for $150.
Heil HM-12 Genesis Microphone. This is a full range microphone designed for amateur radio use. It produces really great audio. It is a handheld type microphone but can be mounted on a boom arm easily using Heil hardware. Retail is $71. I am selling it for $55.
MFJ – 1263 2 x 2 microphone switch. Allows one or two microphones to be switched between 1 or 2 radios. Works great. We used this to switch the handheld mic, used by the control operator, and the HM12 which was on a stand for the students asking the questions. We could switch either mic into either radio with the push of a button. I have Yaesu modular cables for it but cables for other radios can be purchased or made. Retail is $120. I am asking $80 for it.
DX Engineering RADP-3 stainless steel radial plate with radial bolts. Brand new, never outside. This is a beautiful radial plate with .25 inches radial bolts. It retails for $54.50. I also have 1000 feet of DX Engineering 14 gauge insulated radial wire. Retail is $142.95. I am asking $45 for the radial plate and $125 for the radial wire. I’ll sell them both together for $165.
Mirage B2518G 160 watt 2 meter power amplifier. On air approximately 1 or 2 hours during our ARISS project. It works great and has a built in pre-amp with automatic sensing and switching. Puts out full power with 25 watts drive. Retail is $370. I am asking $285 for it.
Semlex 1235M 5 volt power supply. This is a 30 amp power supply purchased to run the above Mirage power amplifier. It has built in meters and works great. I made up a PowerPole pigtail for it. List price is $136. I am asking $110 for it.
Yaesu FT817ND – All mode/All band QRP radio. This is a very popular radio with QRP’ers and SOTA folks. Retail is $670. I have installed the W4RT one plug 2700 mah battery and the better battery access cover which allows recharging without removing the battery. The battery kit and door retail for $155. I am asking $725 for the entire setup.
CW touchkeyer model P1W – This is a super-sensitive capacitive touch paddle with a built-in keyer. It works really well. I have two and am going to keep the one without the built in keyer. This retails for $120. I am selling it for $80.
Daiwa CN-801 HP. This is a 4 month old in-line SWR Power Meter. 1.8 to 200 mhz. Cross needle design with a big meter. Easy to read. Can measure average or peak power. Can handle up to 2KW. Really nice. Retail $160. I am asking $125.
