As if by magique!

Minty Fresh. EAC R-390A from the big non-ebay auction here in NY.

Was non-working, blown B+ fuse, and DOA original JAN 6AK5 oscillator tube for the 17mc oscillator. Clean, no sign of any *lube*!! Very little wear on the slug rack ways. Will have to spend some time doing the lube and checking the PTO end points. Works FB!!

Did this come from the big Hal auction? 

Looks very clean for sure.

By "Hal" Auction do you guys mean Hal K6DPZ? I sold him a lot of stuff 20 years ago and would like a chance to get my TMC SSB exciter, GPR-90 and HQ180 back.

Yep... Joe, and Chris, Hal's stuff. An incredible stash.
Once in a century type stuff here in quantity, notwithstanding Vortex Joe's stuff.
Well over a thousand pieces have been sold, and it's really just starting...

And Chris, I can give you the auctioneer's name. You can contact. (email me)
The GPR-90 may have just been sold.
I know who got it.
So, IF there are distinguishing features, they could be checked.

Nothing else TMC has shown up so far.

But frankly, I think your horse has left that barn - you'd have to bid on it to get it,
unless maybe you have paperwork to prove ownership??

Three or possibly four GPR-90s have gone thru already.

I did score a HQ-180 (amongst a bunch of other stuff), maybe it was yours Chris?  Any way to identify it?  Was with a HX-500 which is what I was really interested in.  Got some other cool stuff, about 50% of what I've gone thru is either working or very easily repaired.  A 75A-4 needed a fuse and a 5Y3, a SX-73 needed a fuse and a 5U4 to work, etc.

Auction house said at least 5 more auctions, at 200 lots per auction.

I'm looking forward to the Pro-310 report.
