> I have a G59 that is available. Currently it is sitting in a box in the corner of my den. After 62 years as a ham I am no longer active, and the G59 plus other equipment rests, inactive. I purchased the G59, G10 and GBox from a ham who was unable to finish them. Seems he had shorted one of the regulators and lost several components and wanted to unload it. I've got it working but have never put it on the air. The rcvr works great on all bands. Opposite sideband rejection was good and the rcvr was hotter than a firecracker. The G10 is complete and the bias adjusted but that is as far as it goes. I've mounted both the xcvr and amp in the Gbox. Also put a small blower on the back to reduce heating of the PA, but not sure if needed. The G59 is the earlier version, using four chips in the rcvr, it does not have the comb generator for calibration. I calibrated it with another xcvr on low power.
> I'd like to get $200 for it plus shipping. I will pack it well and will include many extra parts/chips that I purchased separately. I can put some pix together next week if anyone is interested. My call is good in the call sign lookup and I've always had good feedback on ebay as daditdaditdadaditda. I thought about putting them on ebay but don't want to go through the trouble.
> I have used software developed radios before, including the Flex 1500 and a couple of softrocks. I think the G59 is the better radio with more flexibility and a much better rcvr. Regards Vin W1TUJ
