      a very nice Collins 20-V 3 AM transmitter. I purchased it years ago from an engineer in Northern Missouri. I had plans on putting it at one watt for educational purposes for entry level local broadcasters showing them how we used to do things. That never materialized. It has been in my studio for all these years.
      I am not sure of the frequency because when I got it, all tubes and the crystal were boxed up for transport.
      I believe it is higher on the band…maybe 1300-1450, something like that. I will go through and see what the crystal says. At any rate, it is clean and looks to be well maintained. I just don’t have any future plans for it. I have never installed it in all thee years. I will take 1200 for it and you must pick up locally.

      Posters: Potential buyers (or sellers) need to know who you are and where you are located. Your full name and phone number are required, along with a valid email address, so we can contact you if there are any questions about the items or services.

      Want ads typically run 60-120 days before auto-deletion. If you do sell (buy), please let us know, so we can delete the listing.


      Individuals: In general, there is no fee for private listing. We only as that you do not abuse the service. Modest “tips” are always welcome, but not required. It is up to you.

      Businesses: If you are a regular commercial business selling new and/or used equipment, it is proper to identify yourself as such. Although some leeway is given, we reserve the right to ask fees for commercial listings. If in doubt, please contact us below.
