It's still not a bad price at all considering the quality of craftsmanship.

I'd love to buy it, Bob, but it's way out of my price range. Not that it isn't worth every penny you're asking for it, only that I don't have that many pennies to spend.

I really don't really expect anyone to buy it Carl....I have built and sold seven of these this year mainly by request...I put another two together to put myself ahead in case I get another order...This one will go in time...I make very little out of it for my outlay or time...I just build them for the pleasure..Keeps this grumpy old bugger out of mischief..

I am doing a high power GS-35B 6 meter project at the moment for next years SERG homebrew competition....Never tried high power on 6 before..Should be interesting though....Wish me luck... :nuts:

Bob, I think I speak (OK, type) for many when I say that if I could right now, I would. Nice job on them though!
