    I've got a box of Kenwood TM25xx and 35xx rigs. All work, except for that well-known, %^$%#% obsolete Alps volume pot/on-off switch bit. They would make ideal packet rigs if the power connection was hard-wired and one of the several replacement pots I have on hand (minus switches, of course) was installed in place of the defective OEM control.

    They're in various stages of disassembly but all there for the most part. I think I have service manuals for them too.

    Here's what I'm going to do:

    All the rigs, a mobile mount and manuals plus pots will be carefully boxed for shipment, at which time the box will be weighed and a shipping figure to the furthest point CONUS (probably Carl's doorstep) will be calculated. Then, the box of goodies will be listed in our For Sale section as a silent auction for one month with a starting price of the shipping amount.

    Non-members can bid on it as well; contact info will be given in the listing.

    Everything over the shipping figure goes towards Island upkeep. I don't care if it's $5.00 or $500.

    Pics of the stuff will be taken prior to packing, and prior to sealing the box.

    Great idea, Fred. One day, I'll clean out my garage, and do something similar. No telling what's out there...

    OK, the mad Irishman just sealed the deal. I accepted my righteous punishment as promised.

    Thanks again for supporting the HamIsland Forums!
