    WTB: Vacuum Variable Capacitor

    Anyone have an unneeded Vacuum Variable Capacitor that they’d be willing to part with at a decent price?

    I’m looking for one for an antenna project. I’ve seen some “Russian Military Surplus” ones covering 25 -400 pF at various voltage/power levels, over on the auction site, but who knows what you’re really buying?

    Yes.

    Fair Radio only has a few in stock, and they are all $$$. Surplus Sales has a few more available, but they are all $$$ or $$$$. (Not including tax and shipping)

    Figures. I’ve seen them at hamfests on & off in the past for around $50 - 75. Now that I am in need of one? Not a one in sight.

    Was just kinda hoping someone had one that they no longer needed & would be willing to part with...

    Prices for them here are quite high, certainly the higher voltage/capacity ones, 25th of may we have a large ham sale here, will have a look there with the Russians that come every year there to sell their stuff.
    They become more like unobtanium every year ...
