For Sale:  (Too much stuff laying around, this transverter works fine)

Ten-Tec 1210A 2 Meter transverter for sale - $100 (plus shipping)


Allows you to get on 2 Meters (all mode, transmit and receive) from a 10
meter rig (even the HF Flex DSP radios). With a Flex it allows you to "see"
the activity output from 2m passband of a satellite.

Also worked great with the Icom IC-703+ for 2m capability.

Full 10 watts RF output. ALC-controlled 10M input handles power range of 4
to 20 watts. Solid-state T-R switching. Engineered for optimized l0M-2M
conversion performance. 1.5"H x 5 "W x 8"D.

This is a Factory Built transverter (not the kit version)

Contact Mike W4UOO if interested.
