FWRC to offer estate gear at Auburn Hamfest July 11

The Auburn Hamfest is Saturday, July 11, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, 1600 S Wayne Street, Auburn. Admission to the hamfest and museum are free.

During the hamfest, the Fort Wayne Radio Club will offer for sale some items from the estate of Adoplh Wozniak, WA9WTJ. One item is a super clean I-COM IC-718 HF transceiver with MFJ switching power supply, microphone, and power cable.

Yaesu FT-736R

Another is a Yaesu FT-736R VHF/UHF all-mode transceiver for the 144, 432 and 1296 MHz bands. It is fully duplex, so you can transmit on one band while receiving on another, making it perfect for satellite operation, balloon launches, etc. Included with the rig are a microphone and AC and DC power cords. The rig has an internal AC power supply. It also has a tone generator for repeater operation. This rig’s appearance is fantastic. It has a just-out-of-the-factory look. There is no box or manual, however.

Swan 250C

FWRC will also offer a Swan 250C six-meter SSB transceiver that is super clean. Includes a matching power supply and speaker. The unit has an issue with blowing fuses, but leaky rectifiers are the probable cause, which can be easily fixed.

The estate included many more items that the FWRC will offer for sale in the future, including scopes, RF generators, and microwave instrumentation and antennas.
