PRC-104 - Sold!

Folks, I am really not sure what these are worth.

Feel free to make me an offer.
Dean KJ6CQC


For Sale two and a half early PRC-104 radios. My intent for these radios was to put together a send-ahead vacation HF station. I have reached the conclusion that I do not have the technical skill and test bench needed to make this a reality and that a current production radio is the way to go. If you have the tools and knowledge these could be a great deal for you. Alternatively if you are a green radio collector you will be hard pressed to find an older set of PRC-104s.

The Lot includes the following:
Receiver Exciter qty 3. Two are complete one is missing the cover plates and possibly a jumper
Serial numbers: M002,M004,M012 (missing cover plates and coax jumper)
Amplifier/Antenna Coupler qty. 2 Serial numbers: M001 and M012

Accessories:
AT-271A 10 foot whip antenna Used, not perfectly straight but definitely serviceable
CY-7875 (dual BA-5590) battery box (Qty 2)
AB-129/PR Antenna spring base has green paint on it
AB-1241 NVIS Ground Mount Antenna Base
KY-872 leg clip Morse code Key Mint condition
CX-13030 Bench Test Electrical power Cable very good condition
CX-13031 Battery Extender cable very good condition
CY-7542 Transit Case very used, scuffed because it has been doing its job. Structurally sound it has a broken latch if memory serves me.
H-250 Handset Nearly new condition with white paint stamp in good shape and connector anodizing is nearly perfect.

Alice pack and frame consisting of:
LC-1 Field Pack, Medium, Green
Cargo Support Shelf
Webbing Strap, 1” x 52”, Olive Drab
Pack Frame w/Straps
The pack frame and pack are in good condition however they are a long way from new. I will provide pictures later.

• There is a 4 mm by 2 mm chip out of the back right corner of the bottom cover plate. This should not affect the ingress protetection of the cover plate.

• Painted over scratches on cover plates
• Ground wire connector in good shape moves freely
• Power input connector in good condition threads intact and clean
