Hallicrafters HT-40A: This is the classic "novice" type AM/CW transmitter. These are similar to the Heathkit DX-60 (controlled carrier AM), but with a much better power supply so the HT-40a has less of the PS sag issues and modulation scratchiness as experienced with the DX-60. This particular radio is also in good cosmetic condition. There is one dent on the very back, but the paint is in excellent shape all around with a few scratches here and there (see images). All the orginal knobs are included. The item is clean in and out with only "finger prints and patina" on the front panel. All tubes are included (untested). This radio does not include any crystals nor any VFO, so you will need to have, or acquire, those on your own. $125 + shipping costs

Let me get this stuff we all dislike out of the way...
First I only use PayPal. This way both the buyer and myself are protected somewhat. Don't even ask about Friends and Family or gift options on PayPal, not going to happen. So yes ... the PayPal fee is included in the price. The only other form of payment is by cash if you come here to my QTH in Bronx, NY to pick up an item. Otherwise it is just PayPal.
Just to be clear ... My prices are firm, but fair IMO. Honestly, I need the money I'm asking for. So please do not waste your time haggling.
I will ship to the continental US and Canada only. I pack well and if you have any special needs just ask. I will charge actual shipping cost, plus a little extra for packaging materials, let's say $15 for things like bubble wrap, box, stretch wrap, etc. I use both UPS and USPS, your choice.
Now here's the thing ... all sales final and sold "AS IS". Here's the explanation. I have had a rash of people buying items from me, claiming there was shipping damage and shipping them back for return and refund, only to find they took all the tubes (which was the plan I guess). Also I have had people taking advantage of the eBay Buyer Protection Program. All you have to do is claim it was damaged in shipping (whether true or not) and eBay will make a full refund without any proof from the buyer once the box (or any box) is delivered to the seller. In addition to having at least six radios stripped of all the tubes, I once got back a box of rocks in place of an expensive McIntosh audio power amp, and I still had to reimburse eBay 5 months later for the $2400 refund they gave the buyer. (In fact, I still owe eBay a few hundred dollars). So the buyer got a free amplifier which in fact was not damaged at all, and I got a $2400 eBay bill. So ... no refunds or returns. No exceptions.
What's the phrase ... a few bad apples ...?
