Need to test my rig before selling

Post by wb9yse » Wed Jan 26, 2011 3:50 am

Greetings all,
I'm preparing to sell my Kenwood TS-830S but the rig has not been used for some time. I have done some testing, but without an antenna, etc., I can't really say with 100% confidence that it's fully functional. Does anyone have a suggestion for how/where I can test the gear in the Minneapolis, MN, area? I certainly don't want to misrepresent the xcvr when I post the sale.

Tnx in advance.

I checked your Call Sign and you are in PLYMOUTH, MN. So, I jumped over to Google and enter PLYMOUTH, MN amateur radio and got this link: http://www.city-data.com/aradio/lic-Ply ... esota.html

You will get a bunch of hits for your area (you are even listed)! Then, just go to http://www.switchboard.com/ and enter the name of one of the Ham's and get his (or her) phone number and give them a call. I'm sure any ham would be happy to let you hook your rig up to their antenna.

Hope this helps...

KE3W,
Thanks for the tip. Yes, I considered that... but feared it would be presumptuous... in fact I also considered driving around looking for yagi's ;-)

I am sort-of hoping someone local will see the post and offer assistance....

Thanks again.
