I bought a Kenwood T-50s and KAT-1 Autotuner from a Missionary in Zambia. I return to the States soon and want to sell it in the US. What is a reasonable asking price to start with?

A quick search shows TS-50s were sold in the last year for between $400 - $575.
The KAT-1 in the states was sold as an AT-300 and is very rare. I only found one listed, asking $300, but not marked sold.
The AT albeit being rare, is not worth a lot due to many other units similar (MFJ-926 & 927) fetching $250 or less brand new.
The other consideration about the AT is that should it fail, it is probably unrepairable due to its age.

Clint, all helpful info. Thanks. So $700 on a packaged deal to ballpark it... I may put it in the classifieds once I get to the States.

I think 400 to 575 for a TS50 is wishful thinking. More like 300 to 400 if your lucky. I is a very simple rig with limited selectivity and very dated. A used 480 is a WAY better rig and can be 650 to 750 or so and a 570 while bigger has a built in tuner and better receiver and used 500 to 650. Set sights lower and you will get more selling at300 by itself and then get what you can for TS50 as tuner will work with other rigs and is as stated above rare and maybe worth more too.

So maybe offer to sell it both ways at first, a combo or separate and provide a pricing for each... If it gets split then just update the post to reflect the part sold. Thanks John for your input too.
