Brrrr- it's cold in the shack! Fire up the BIG RIG

CAN BE DELIVERED TO NEARFEST! (look ma, no shipping costs!)
(shipping may be a problem, discuss... will consider meet up within ~100miles of Albany NY or so)

This is the infamous "Globe King 500D" - not made by Leo Myerson's company.
Made by a rather shady fellow quite some years ago.

Here's the deal - what you get:
- a full suite of PETER DAHL iron. Mod iron, power iron, choke iron.
- the RF deck (pictured) - 4-400 tube (in good shape)
- a separate Modulator/PS deck with 572b tube in PP.
- Nice rack enclosure (no R-390a, as in the pic)

This was sold to me as a "working transmitter - used for testing by an RF company".
It is not.
I will tell you EVERYTHING that I found, any schematics, and what I fixed, most of what needs doing, and
ways to do it.
Frankly, while I can resurrect this transmitter, I have too many other projects, and no time.
I bought it to drop in and run.
It's a fantastic basis for a custom transmitter.

Realistically it is about 2/3+ of what a from scratch homebrew build would involve.
Maybe more.
Count on both electronic and mechanical work to finish it off.

This fabulous transmitter deal can be YOURS, if the PRICE IS RIGHT!!
(just the tubes, iron and parts, used, are worth ~2x the asking price, as far as I can see...)

I will consider reasonable full or partial trades, maybe your best offer... or my cash and the
rig to your better trade material?

If you ever wanted to build up a transmitter? JUMP ON THIS!!!

Ask any questions!
