VE2OTA Buyer Beware

VE2OTA posted for sale 15 March 2020 SB200 Amp
his original post is pasted here and What Really Arrived at my Door
orig post :
Heathkit SB-200

All original no mods at all. In great shape. New 572b tubes. A great example of this classic amp if you want something original. Also a great starting point if you want to tinker and mod the amp.

Key down is 600 watts but driving it to produce 500 watts would be a better way to go and it would run forever....

Note: Would require external buffer switch to run with modern equipment or run it with a foot switch and enjoy the power.

Wired for 120 Volts.

$575 USD buyer pays shipping.
First the Amp arrived with Soft Tubes output on TWO meters only 400 Watts . His answer to this is
that my A/C outlet is Bad in my house. He also states that He wanted me to pay 3% paypal which was not posted on his QRZ posting 15 March 20
The Tubes are SOFT on arrival. This individual also gets paid $575 and Fills out a Canada Customs Form
saying he sold me the AMP for $400 . This is an Honest Person... Also he claims that he sells to U.S.A. Buyers and never before has had to fill out CUSTOMS FORMS Yes you can really believe him
