W9WI EQUIPMENT FOR SALE

2019-05-12

This list will change; additional equipment will be available as I inventory it.

All equipment is available immediately.

I can arrange for you to pick up in Nashville. Most gear can be shipped, although I think that’s going to be a challenge with amplifiers, tower sections, or antennas:)

All prices are negotiable. I haven’t done much gear trading over the years, so I may be out of touch with some numbers. (although I have taken a quick look on QRZ and eHam)

If interested please email at dougw9wi@gmail.com .
