For Sale: MFJ Intellituner & Interface

I have a barely used MFJ-993B Intellituner and an MFJ-5124 Radio Interface for sale. Both are in excellent condition. I believe the Interface is specific for Yaesu radios, and is presently configured for the Yaesu FT-450D.

The tuner has a few scratches on top from being installed and removed from my go-box but, otherwise, it’s in excellent condition.

Anderson Powerpole connections have been added to the Radio Interface.

Ham Radio Outlet sells the tuner for $279.95 and the Interface for $69.95.

Tuner – $200
Interface – $40
Or $225 for both

Terry Graves (K7FE/sk) Estate

As some of you may know, a few of us have been working with the family of the late Terry Graves (K7FE/sk) to find new homes for many of his Amateur Radio and engineering treasures, while at the same time trying to recover some much-needed revenue for the family.  To that end, in May, 2017, we published the first list (i.e., Rev. 1.0) of “For Sale” items for your review and consideration.  We will try to keep the list as current and accurate as possible, dropping items that are either PENDING SALE or SOLD, refining item information as appropriate, and adding items   as they become available.  Items currently available for purchase are listed at
