This is the boatanchors page, old gear that I buy and fix up. Some of it
is for curiosity value like the KW2000, others like the FL-2100Z are very
useful to have around the shack.
||KW Electronics KW2000. A very early model, this is the non-suffix
version before the 'A', 'B', and 'E' came out and has a single 6146.
Output on SSB is around 50W. The mechanical filter is on its way out,
and the unit is currently undergoing repairs.
||Regentone 353/2. Bought on eBay
for a fiver, a non-working radio with potential as a nice MW set for the
||Yaesu FL-2100Z. Bought untested, the
price was right. A major blow-up within an hours use revealed grid stoppers
that were well past their sell by date. Both have been replaced and the
unit is now in service delivering good results.
||Yaesu FT-101E. One of the last
FT101s before they went digital, this is a nice example and has been
looked after. It required some minor repairs when I bought it, and has
had quite a number of the ceramic trimmers replaced.
||Yaesu YO-100. The 70's Yaesu monitor scope,
designed to team up with the FT-101. I bought this at a rally
although there was a minor fault on it which has now been fixed.
