Hi All,

I have began the process of downsizing my station and am looking to start selling off some of the equipment.

I have a Yaesu FT-1000D with: RTTY/CW Serial Interface, CAT computer control cable, FRB-757 External Keying Relay and Top Ten Band Decoder with all interface cables. Asking $1400 for the package.

The FT-1000D has been part of many contest winning efforts and has many more left in it. This is still one of the best contesting radios available.

I also have an AL-1200 that I am looking to sell, this one has a new band switch and is fine working condition. Power on to full transmit power in 13 seconds, all weekend on RTTY, no problem. Asking $1300

If you are interested in both, let me know and we can work out a CTRI bundle price.

Towers, Antennas and much more to follow.

Hi all,

Hope everyone is surviving the summer heat, keep in mind that CQWW RTTY is 2 months away. I am considering a M/2 from my place to give the W1AN team some competition. Looking for operators, if interested let me know. If there is not enough interest I will SOA once again.

From what I heard when I had the opportunity to operate, the bands sounded good. Congrats Ken on an excellent score.
