Antenns and Antenna accessories

 

Array Solutions Mini StackMatch II, brand new and un used.  Two antenna port StackMatch without relays with SO-239 connectors.  Handles 3kW.  Array Solutions product code: Mini SM2 3K-SO.
This device is basically the StackMatch without the ability to do any switching of antennas.  It is a fixed transformer device in a die-cast aluminum weather resistant case.  It will provide phasing to two or three 50 ohm antennas without the ability to switch the stack like the standard StackMatch product.  They can be combined to allow stacks of 2, 5, 6, 8 and 9 antennas.  It has the same specifications as the standard StackMatch and can be used on 6 meters.

Vintage Radio

 

Valve PM12M, new and in original box.  The PM12M is a screened pentode for RF amplification. It is one of the early valves made with the anode as top cap connection, later types placed the control grid connection to the top cap for even greater separation of input and output circuits.  The PM12V variable μ pentode was released in 1932 and was replaced by the PM12M in 1933.  Equivalent to the VR41, CV1041, K5ON, W21Met, 210VPA, 210VPT, VP210, VP2, VS210, VS2, 220VS, S215VM and 218VSG.  Was popular in the days (1970s) when the RSGB’s National Field Day restricted transmitters to one valve with a maximum of 10W.

 

 

Roberts R 200 portable transistor radio, serial V 55419, manufactured 1960-64 by Roberts Radio Co Ltd, East Molesey, Surrey.  Superheterodyne (common); ZF/IF 470Hz.  Medium and long wave-bands.  Powered by 9V PP9 battery (not supplied).  External antenna socket on rear.   Originally priced at £14 in first year of manufacturer.  Very good condition for its age with nothing broken (except the carry strap, see picture) and no scratches or marks on the case.  Radio works fine on the long-wave band, especially with an external aerial, but there is a fault on the medium wave-band in that stations are only received when I lightly touch part of the tuning condenser.

Amateur Radio Sale

 

16 April 2021

 

After 47 years of being a hoarder and building up a large store of amateur radio equipment and book, sadly I have reached the stage of life where we have to down-size to a smaller house with less land where I will not be able to make use of, or have the room to store, much of my equipment or books.  I am therefore offering it for sale before, perhaps, donating it to a club, or even scrapping it.

 

I have a large amount of other amateur radio equipment, that is too numerous to list separately, and which will be made available to personal callers.

 

I haven’t priced each item because I haven’t had the time to research what each item might be worth etc, but if you let me know anything you are interested in, then I will send you a postage / shipping cost, and I am sure we can come to an agreement on the price.  Most of the equipment can be sold cheaply as I just wish to dispose of it.

 

Please email me at <chris@g4bue.com> if you would like more information about something or would like to visit and look at what I have.  I am retired and am generally available most of the time.

 

I am regularly adding new items, so please look back from time to time.  I will delete items as I sell them.
