Heathkit SA-2060 Antenna Tuner - Sold!


Iím selling my Heathkit SA-2060 Deluxe Full Legal Power Antenna Tuner as I do not have a linear amplifier and no longer need this beautifully engineered piece of equipment. This tuner is in NEAR NEW CONDITION. It has been meticulously maintained and sat covered on a closet shelf when not in use. It shows no evidence whatsoever of internal arcing or damage. The front face of this tuner is MINT and has none of the typical smudges and wear typically seen around the dials on older equipment. I found two small scratches on the outside of the black metal cover from a recent move so I carefully sanded, primed and repainted the cover with five coats of the original Heathkit color acrylic paint to better than new condition. This tuner has always been in a NON-SMOKING environment. I will include a clean photocopy of the original Heathkit Builder's/Owner's manual.

For those not familiar with the Heathkit SA-2060, this is arguably the finest full-power antenna tuner ever built and is very highly sought after. Iíve heard old-timers claim the SA-2060 is so versatile it will ďtune the hood of a Volkswagen.Ē Heathkit was greatly admired for over-engineering its products, and this tuner is no exception. Heathkit provided industrial grade components including a silver-plated contact continuously tunable roller inductor virtually unseen even in todayís top-of-the-line tuners. This tuner is built tougher than a M1 Abrams Main Battle tank.

Please see the numerous accolades regarding the Heathkit SA-2060 at:

The value of both these tuners has increased markedly during the past few years as hams have come to realize that newer is not always better when it comes to ham radio gear. I had to look for over a year to locate this SA-2060 and bought it sight unseen because I was so darned excited to find it, let alone in this condition.

Heathkit SA-2060 Product Specifications:
-- Continuously Tunable roller type variable inductor from 10 -160 Meters (Including WARC & MARS Bands)
-- Tunes and matches balanced or unbalanced feed lines.
-- Accommodates coax, single wire or ladder line up to full legal FCC limit.
-- Silver-Plated straps and roller contact assembly to minimize RF loss.
-- Large ceramic feed-through insulators to withstand high-voltage RF.
-- Dual Wattmeters to read both forward and reflected power.
-- SWR indications on reflected meter read from 1:1 to 3:1.
-- Front-panel digital counter allows immediate tuning of inductor to previously calibrated frequencies. This is a HUGE convenience!
-- Single front-panel switch controls output between antennas and dummy load.

Iím asking TOP DOLLAR for this tuner because itís in TOP DOLLAR condition and is the best there is. Please e-mail me for additional high resolution photos. Price is $385.00/OBO. Buyer pays the shipping. Many Thanks & 73's! Jim, WA6HZX, or PH 603-471-9390.
