TO DETERMINE EQUIPMENT VALUE, THE CONDITION MUST BE KNOWN!

Post by K4ICL » Wed Jun 04, 2003 4:56 pm

There have been several requests for estimates of the value of ham equipment where the requestors did not indicate the condition of the equipment.

To provide a good estimate requires that the estimator know the condition of the equipment. A fully operational, almost new looking AF-67 transmitter is worth a WHOLE LOT MORE than one that is dead and all beat up.

Happy trading...

Henry 2K Amp

Post by kd6tjc » Thu Apr 28, 2005 7:19 pm

Hello I just bought a Henry 2K Amp clean inside and out has full power output as tubes are new all works great as it should a 8 out of 10 in looks due to age she's a little faded in the paint job dept. No big deal.
Wonder if I got a good deal what's this Amp worth?

After doing a little research on that model it is not totally clear which amp you have. Apparently there is a series of Henry 2K amps, all different. If your amp use two 4-500 finals and has WARC bands, it appears that it originally cost about $2,500. If in fairly good condtion now, its worth appears to range from $750 to $1,000. This is, to some extent, is a SWAG since the particular linear is hard to pin down.

Perhaps more detailed info about your amp would help.

Cheers,

AL
