I also have a few tube type boat anchor rigs for parts: Conar 500 rcvr, HR10B junker, Heathkit twins the Cheyanne and Commanche (I just did a repair on the
HP20 power supply to power these guys) --
that are intact but I might consider a deal on them or parting them out to someone restoring a pair of them. Email me email@example.com LINK HERE --- I

|I HAVE A GOOD STOCK PILE of used parts for the FT301 series such as spare
knobs, good tested used crystals ($10 each), some chasis parts, spare tested
working plug in circuit boards.

This "new" BUSINESS is really only me and my wife helping. I am retired now
(except for my ham radio sales and the odd small repair). My wife is currently
out of work since the local newspaper moved its mailroom operations out of
town..so I have put a small business in her name so that she can try learning
MY PRICES ARE HOBBY PRICES (bargain basement prices- literally) ..Thats
where all the stuff is - in my basement (partially finished) 3 bedroom bungalow
here in Elliot Lake, Ontario Canada.
|IF YOU NEED A POWER CONNECTOR with line cord..I
can fix you up with one. or..send you the connector
and a diagram to wire it up.
|I have quite a few new parts
(like the TA7089s pictured left)
that I went out and bought as
spares for the FT301.
I even have some spare parts
for the final PA booster
section. I might even have a
spare set of finals. I would
have to pull them and test
Price would be about 1/2 the
price (or maybe a bit less
actually) of new ones ie the
matched pairs from RF Parts
I am always looking for more
radios like these. SOLID STATE
FROM THE 1970s and 1980s. That
is what I specialize in.
Older Ten Tecs in particular ie
the Argonaut 505 through 515
and the Argosy and the
OLDER JUNKY RADIOS and
accessories -- I can part them out
and sell to hams who are
restoring older gear.
I PAY THE SHIPPING COSTS
|TEN TEC Argosy, Argonaut and some others - parts
and service for the plug in circuit boards. I sell most
reasonable to hams who still work on radios.
|THIS PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION (as is the whole site in actual
fact -- JANUARY 18th 2016 - noted --
thank you for your understanding.. Earl VE3AB
|I have a a separate page for ARGOSY
CLICK HERE FOR THIS NEW ARGOSY
PAGE OF PARTS.
oooo JANUARY 2016 - just received a
80787rev a board with a bank of crystals
NOTE: THE BOARD has been sold but I
kept the crystals and I sell them for $8
each tested.. for the Argosy 525.
Crystals (mixing) will be sold at $8 US
ALSO expecting in a stock crystal filter
for the Argosy $20
I have sold most of the Argosy boards
now but I still have many discrete
components for both Argosy and
|USED TESTED AND GUARANTEED PARTS for OLDER
Solid State Radios from the 1970s and 80s
--->> I also have manuals from a set of CD roms (also some
service Bulletins as well ect) just email me and I can look up
|TEN TEC ARGONAUT 505 THROUGH
515 - These are sacred radios! They
were at the forefront of the QRP
movement back in the mid to late 1970s.
I have a collection of about 6 of these
Some are working fine and a few I have
to get around to fixing. I do have a few
spare physical parts but not all that
|I have quite a few of the transistors and ICs and other components
used in the Argonaut.
I do MAIL ORDER REPAIRS of the circuit cards.
CLICK HERE FOR ONE EXAMPLE of an Audio Board repair I did here in
I have the finals for the 515 and I have some finals for the 505 and 509
and I may be able to get you a matched pair through testing. My prices
would be (about) $14 for a matched pair of finals.
|NOT ALL MY STUFF IS LISTED (YET) ON MY DATA BASES OF PARTS. I do things little by
little each day sort of thing. You can email me at this LINK HERE <click here> and ask
me for parts. I can give you a quote by email.
--->> I am particularly interested in OLDER SOLID STATE TEN TEC and HEATHKIT junker
rigs. Either I fix them up or (if they are too costly or junked up.. I part them out.
Foreign Amateurs have told me that the Ten Tec spare parts are hard for them to
locate. They tell me that it is easier to find Kenwood and Yaesu parts. I like working on
the older Ten Tecs like the Argosy, Argonauts and Triton.
MY LITTLE "BUSINESS" is specifically geared to older solid state radios that have no
PLL or Microprocessor control and that have the old through hole parts that are easy
to find substitutes for. -- IF YOU WANT TO DONATE ANY OLD STUFF (I also buy it
outright as well).. I WILL PAY FOR THE POSTAGE to get it here. 73 Earl VE3AB
|Atlas 210x. I have 2 junker rigs and I have a
good number of spare boards. The main tuning
knob is a very commonly requested item. I
have sold all the ones I have. See the
substitute one I put on my own working 210x !
These boards are (generally) easy to work on.
See the upper right hand corner of the PC-300
D board.. WHEN I DO A REPAIR and replace an
IC or dual gate mosfet ect I sometimes use a
socket so that I can try other parts to see if
they work or I can repair the unit again (easily)
if I have to.
I have special 'AMP' brand repair pins for
circuit boards I use or I use the single in line
|BOARD REPAIRS BY MAIL (1ST CLASS LETTER MAIL) is fairly economical and I will repair a
board like the one above for about $18 to $25 depending on whats wrong with it.
I dont work on entire radios now because of time restrictions and the fact that I dont have all
the parts I may need but CIRCUIT BOARD REPAIRS or REPAIRS TO HAM ACCESSORIES are
fairly easy for me to do and I charge a very reasonable $10/hr (which is less than minimum
wage up here in Canada!
|FT221. December 27th 2014. I have one good working FT221 and I have one that has
a problem with the PLL circuit board. I hope to repair the PLL board soon. NOTE: I
have bought parts for the 221 pll board and I have some other components for the
221 should you wish to contact me. email: email@example.com
|It took me about 6 years
to sell off all my Argo 556
(similar to the Scout)
Im looking for more parts
donor rigs - IF you have
rigs that have mulitple
problems.. I CAN BUY
THEM OFF YOU AND/OR I
TAKE DONATED RIGS
(old rigs as well). There
are still people working at
fixing ham radio
equipment. I know of one
doctor in Sudbury - as an
example !! my -- email
|ABOVE PICTURED: my very ugly home made
extender card. It worked! There is a fellow in Rhode
Island who uses a router machine to make some
pretty good extender cards for older gear. He is on
ebay and maybe qth.com - just search for FT301 or
FT221 and u should be able to find him.
|HEATHKIT: I have one junker HW7 and 3 others I am working on.
I have one good HR10B and one junker unit for parts.
---> I can (perhaps) help u with some parts for repair/restoration.
-- I have the Heathkit Comanche and Mohawk twins and no power
supply for them (WANTED power supply to fire them up and try
them). -- or might sell them or even part them out under the right
circumstances. email me and we can chat about it.
Also I have a SB-104 transciever that I will be trying to fix this winter.

|I am almost now sold out of Argosy
parts. Im looking for another/more
Argosy parts as this is one radio I work
on. ( I have one circuit board remaining).
|SEPT 2015 - I just got in a shipment of Atlas radio
parts. I will list them here soon. Some spare
boards and dial drives and some other stuff. MY
PRICES (as per usual) quite a bit less than
typical ebay prices ie I charge only about $25 for
a rebuilt tested board typically whereas on ebay
prices are more like $39 to $45 ranges.
I also received a few Atlas 180 boards and a dial
drive mechanism that might be for a 180. Ask for
more pics/information.. -- my email link over ---->>
|I BUY older rigs for fix up and or parting out. I give you more than the

CANADA area twice a year (fall and late
summer) -- the odd time I go to other ham radio
flea markets when I get the opportunity.

|HEATHKIT SB104 - I have started to part out this SB104.
HEATHKIT SB104 MINUS the display board and minus the C board that fits into the CC slot - currently this rig is on a workbench in the
shop. These two boards were sold to a ham in USA who is working on an SB104. I still have some boards and a few chasis parts left.
-- GIVE ME AN EMAIL email@example.com for parts or to donate or sell me parts/parts radios. What I do is when I buy older radios
ie -- like older Ten Tecs ie Argosy whatever- I try to fix them and if the repair is too costly or too involved time wise..I will part out the
radio to someone who is fixing one of these rigs up. I also take in older boat anchors such as Kenwood TS520, 820 and 830 ect BUT..
because the size and weight of these rigs can be costly to ship..I have to consider that in my costs.
I travel to Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, North Bay and down to Ottawa at least twice a year (spring and late summer) and can pick up old
radios and older solid state parts and other electronics parts in my travels.
