Once again I’ve been getting carried away and buying more than I need so as the 2 I will be retaining is the FTDX-5000MP(main) and the TS-590SG(back-up) I’m offering this stunning Field for sale.
It is in as near to ‘new’ condition as I’ve ever seen in a radio of this age, it is double-boxed and comes with power lead (both AC+DC) and original manual.
Now it has not been molested so won’t hit the ‘555’ however it does benefit from the addition of the Inrad roofing filter(#714) and all SSB optional filter slots have been filled (Inrad #716, XF-10SN, XF-119S etc).
I’ll also add a SignaLink USB unit, an FTDI chipped CAT lead and an Astatic 575-M6 teardrop microphone with it!
There are zero marks on this radio it really is in such good condition, the screen is bright and pops on almost immediately and it’s a pleasure to use however reluctantly it must go!
As I’d really like this to go to a club member who I know would take care of it this is the only place it’s currently advertised!
All in all I think somewhere around the £950 mark is very fair for this package, the ‘teardrop’ alone is rarer than rocking horse doodoo right now!
Drop by and see it working theres no C-19 allowed in this house (hi), further details and pics either email or call 07948 624969 for a natter.
Yeah, you get a great view at night of all the pot heads in the wee lay by just along from it. Interesting fact, (or not) I installed the fire alarm and security lighting in the castle way back 34 years ago.
Wish the club had that type of money....
Been for sale since last year. As its a listed building you would need planning and listed building consent to mount a 3 ele yagi for 20. Hence I won't be buying it and am 1.6 mill short
