Swap & Shop

Welcome to our Swap & Shop page.  Here you can list those great treasures that you think are worth something for whatever price you wish.  We only ask that you ensure they are amateur radio or electronics related.  Old vehicles or household items are better listed on Kijiji.  We will keep the item listed for a month at a time.  We ask also that when an item is no longer available, that you let us know.  You can list your items by sending us an e-mail at and be sure to put a picture of it if you have one and a complete description plus price and how to get hold of you plus your callsign if you have one.  Please do not use this site as an advertising medium for services that you provide.  We will be happy to list your name in the links section for that.   After you send us the e-mail it might take a day or so to get the item up on the site.  Feedback is always welcome of course.

Lots of items sold by lots of helpers since our last update.

HF Amplifier for Sale


Heathkit SB-230 HF Amplifier, rated at 600 watts or more and is set up for 220V service.  The tube is a conduction cooled ceramic 8873.  Since it doesn’t need a fan or blower it is a totally silent amp.  It works on the classic 80-40-20-15-10 meter bands.  The amp is all original, no mods have been done.  It was built from a kit around 1975 by VE7BCF, Ary Spaans (SK), an industrial electronics tech who was a true gentleman and my mentor.  Ary was not a believer in using more than 100 watts unless absolutely necessary.  Since he had a KLM Yagi on a 70 ft tower, he rarely needed the amp.  The ceramic tube has therefore very low hours usage and should give good service for many years to come.  I have personally never used this amp but I will guarantee that it is in excellent condition.  I have periodically plugged it into a 120V outlet and kept it on for several days in order to keep the tube in good working shape.  It comes with the original Heathkit assembly manual and handwritten notes by the builder.  $ 350 firm + shipping. Call Werner, VA6RAU, 403-331-0109 and leave a message.
