Calling all hams!
Bill Gandel, WA4QPF, a longtime RATS member from Prince George County, has been asked by Everett Worrell’s, W4WJJ (SK), widow to help liquidate his Amateur Radio equipment. Typical ham, there’s a lot of it. Some Collins S-Line, some Heathkit, some Yaesu, Clegg 2M gear, too. Bill says there is too much to inventory. Also, operability is questionable. The Yaesu 757 has no display, but according to Ev’s report before he died, it still works.
Here is Bill’s quick synopsis:
“Several Heathkit units. Appears to be transmitters, receivers, 2 amps all of unknown operability.
There are several older 2m rigs like Clegg etc.
Big Vintage Collins station with large transmitter, receiver, and power supply.”
There is a .ZIP file of the pictures Bill sent. Please contact him directly to inquire about purchasing any of this equipment. Please, also spread the word, I know there are hams out there who cherish vintage equipment, and would love to acquire this treasure trove of good old radios.
Also, if you are can, would you contact Bill about actually inventorying this station, and maybe assisting with assessing the operability and/or value? If I knew anything about the old stuff, I could help, but I am pretty much clueless. I remember meeting Ev many years ago when I lived in the Prince George area. He was an active ham, and his is a real loss to us!
