Subj:         RCA 7213 Pulls For Sale
Date:   7/31/99 12:56:40 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From:   KL7FB@WORLDNET.ATT.NET (Christopher Hazlitt)
Reply-to: (Christopher Hazlitt)


I have ten each RCA 7213 high power UHF pulls for sale. I do not know if they are good or not but the story
I got from the guy I got them from was that they were pulled out as routine maintenance on a routine schedule
for some USAF RF PA's.

I paid 50 dollars each to take a chance on some of them being good. These are coaxil socketed tubes and
unless you have the socket, it is a big project to make your own socket. They are supposed to be a good tube
for around 1200 MHz but are excellent for 432 MHz. These are HUGE and have a very large anode similar in diameter
to an 8877 but not as tall. They have a pink cermamic on the sides.

These tubes cost thousands of dollars each when new.

They are for sale for what I paid for them plus shipping.


Subj:         KL7FB selling almost all of his EME stuff.

A unique opportunity has come my way and I need cash, I am going to list all
of my radio stuff, lots of EME stuff too.
I will probably be listing most of my stuff on, but there are
some items which my EME brothers should get a shot
at first.

1. One each UPX-4 1296 Mhz PA which was machined and modified for 1296 MHz,
this unit is a SIX tube 3CX100
or 2SC39 PA with six water cooled tubes. This unit was tested and worked
well but was a bit touchy on the
tuning. This unit has never been set up with a power supply/meter or water
cooling but was tested, just the basic unit. It does come
with a filiment transformer. Make Offer.

2. One each two tube (3CX100) air cooled 1296 MHz PA made in Germany about
two years ago. Bought this
from SSB electronics two years ago for 585.00 dollars. Never used, no power
supply, tubes in it. Make offer.

3. One each Hughes C-Band 6 GHz 40 watt TWTA's. They are complete and run
off of 48 VDC. The 40 watt
rating is for commercial use, non compressed linear RF for multiple RF
carriers, will do more for single
carrier CW. I have had someone tell me they got 60 watts out of one of
these. I want 400.00 each for these
units. They work and are guaranteed to be as specified here. (Lance, I am
saving one for you.)

4. Two Each 10 KW 50 MHz Linear RF Power Amplifeirs, in a tall rack and
complete except uses 208 three
phase AC. One good 3CX10,000 pull and one NEW never used tube too. Weighs
about 900 pounds !

5. Two sets of 3 AMP continuous 6 KV full wave bridge rectifiers. 4 Diodes
each set. These babys will power a 10 KW 6 KV 3 AMP PA and not smoke. Best
offer, includes heat sinks.

6. I am considering selling my 5 KW 144 MHz (yes five kilowatt output) RF
Linear Power Amplifier which
uses two each 8877 tubes. 100 watts drive and 4 KV on the plate will make
this baby put out 5 KW
50% duty cycle. I am reluctant to ship the power supply with it, but if you
make a good enough offer
it can go too. Twist my arm hard enough and it will go too, offers? This PA
is the first one ever built and
is solid as a rock, my own design, three others are out there using the same
design and more being built.

7. Any offers an an 2 meter all mode xcver, an ICOM-275A which has been
modified for split receive and
transmit coax lines? What is it worth? I have used it to make over 150 EME
contacts on 144 MHz.

I have way to much stuff to list today, but this is a start. I got RF parts,
man do I, lotsa RF accessories too.
Digital Photos available upon request. I will be listing all of my stuff on
a daily basis as I go through the pile.
