In “normal” times, HARC members have access to at least a couple of local ham radio swap meets each year. These are great opportunities to clean your shack of unneeded clutter, and to find deals on stuff you may need. During the Covid-19 pandemic, these swap meets are more problematic due to the need for social distancing, etc.
To help fill this void, HARC is providing this on-line “Virtual Swap Meet” for its members.
Ham-related items you wish to sell can be listed here until they are sold. To avoid unwanted solicitations, spam, etc., only the seller’s name and call sign will be posted. Presumably, HARC members can figure out how to contact each other.
If you have Ham gear that you would like to sell, please contact David, KN6CEH, with the specifics to have it listed here. Private sales only–No commercial listings will be posted. Thanks.
From Randy, KN6NSK:
Here are a few items I’m moving out of my shack:
I have switched over to an ICOM QRP radio and am reluctantly selling my Yaesu FT-818ND. The radio has only been in the field a few times and is very clean and fully functional. I did add a white dot to the squelch/RF knob to make it’s position more visible. This 6W, all band, all mode radio comes with the LDG Z-817 tuner, Tigertonics Signalink, Windcamp 3000mAh battery, FTDI programming cable, Portable Zero side rails and a Heil HLS-AD-1-YM mic adapter. All boxes and literature are also available. There is over $1200 invested in this set up that I have had for about 1.5 years. It’s been a fun and reliable little radio and would I like $775 for it all. I can supply more photos or meet locally to demo it.
I also have an MFJ-259C HF/VHF Antenna Analyzer that I am selling. This analyzer covers 530Khz to 230MHz and is in great shape. I’d like $175 for it.
I also have for sale a Kenwood MC-60 desktop microphone. It’s very clean and has the original box and literature. I’d like $90 for it.
Finally I have a DIY Solar For U Sól Buck-Boost 20 Amp MPPT charge controller with remote display, extra RF choke and cell balancers (iff you were to make up your own battery bank.) This controller was made with amateur radio in mind is supposed to be very RFI quiet. I ended up going with a totally different solar/battery solution and these components have never been used.
Matt (N6FPV) here, I am looking to sell a TYT 9800 quad band mobile, $200. Bought it about 6 months ago, put it in the truck but rarely used it because my DMR radio covered my normal area just as well. Has the original box and all the original parts and packaging (I will need to remove the face mount from my SUV).
I also have a G5RV, I had it up for about 8 months in Nevada, so it never got rained on! Although there is some corrosion on the connector (must of came a little loose over time). I got a lot of great contacts on that antenna, will take $50 for that.
We received the following from Steve Rogers / K6PU:
I am cleaning out my excess and have a few items I would like to list on the HARC swap meet page if possible. I would like to see these things go to a local ham operator to help them get started. If for any reason there is a problem with any of the equipment I will make it right for them. That is one reason I prefer to deal locally. I keep my word and that is important to me.

I am sure I will find more as I go through my storage. All items are as priced or best offer. I mainly want to get this stuff back into service.

Peter W6IES here, and I’ve got a MFJ-900 tuner (or matchbox, if you prefer). It covers 10-80 meters and handles up to 200 watts. Tunes balanced or unbalanced lines. Info at https://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/hamtune/mfj900.html.
Contact Peter W6IES for more info.
Also from Peter, W6IES: I have an Arrow II handheld satellite antenna that has never been assembled or used; the elements are still in the sealed plastic bag. It’s the split-boom model without the built-in duplexer, but I have an unused MFJ duplexer with coax jumper and two BNC connectors, ready for assembly. Also included is the round carry bag.
See https://www.arrowantennas.com/arrowii/146-437.html for info.
