The values of my last blood test shows that my kidney is going down the drain, so soon I may need dialysis. I have so much stuff that I like to sell a lot before it becomes too late to clean, test restore etc. But I knew that should come, so no problem. It is a pitty that sending outside Costa Rica is prohibitive expensive, so I have to sell here.
A complete working AN/GRC9 station has to go including an LV80 amplifier, antenna, DY88 supply mic, loudspeaker, all cables antenna mounting, leg mounted morse key, spares  set for the AN/GRC9, spares set for the LV80, vehicle mounting bracket for the AN/GRC9, vehicle mounting bracket for the LV80. All in working order.
I did enjoy the set very much for years, so time that someone else starts to enjoy it.
Also a R1155 and a T1154 have to go. The R1155 has the direction finding removed by a former owner, but the receiver works nice. The available space inside is used to mount a 6F6 LS amp
Many materials (the complete long wave part) of the T1154 also had been removed by a former owner. I restored the inside as good as possible and the transmitter works again. Only the modulation should be improved, possibly a bad capacitor or so and incorrect voltages.
The transmitter is quite heavy so I leave the improvements to the next owner. There are good tubes inside and I have spare tubes for the transmitter output stage. (VT104)
Lets hope that someone here bites and that the sets will get a happy longer life.

Hi!

Nico, I will keep my fingers crossed, hoping that all ends well.

The GRC-9 with LV-80 is a very nice set up, use the same stuff my self quite frequently.

Thanks Brad an Morgan.
I knew that this day should come, the chemo therapy has ruined my kidney and I could maintain stable for 12 years. So not too bad at all. Hard to wish better. perhaps I can stretch the situation a little more before I need dialysis. Dialysis Isn't nice, but one can add quite e few years more when required, so I will be around coming years living here in paradise.
I had my An/grc9 with LV80 in a military landrover 88 for quite a few years in the Netherlands and enjoyed it very much.
I remember transmitting underneath a tree at 80 meters when suddenly a small branch did fall on my jeep burning!!!. The antenna did touch the tree and actually put the branch in flames!!
