Subject: [4SQRP] OT: FS GW Instek model GSP-810 for sale

I have an older GW Instek, 150 KHz to 1.2 GHz spectrum analyzer with tracking generator for sale.   It's in working condition, has cosmetic issues on the case but otherwise it's sound. It originally came from an instructor's position at one of the ITT Tech schools before I got it.  It can be remotely controlled through an RS-232 port on the back, but GW Instek wants $200 + for the software so of course, I don't have it.  You can download (I think) demo software (doesn't expire) that will do screen captures & prints, just won't allow the computer to control the SA.

It's a heavy item so shipping will be around $35-40 extra but I'm asking $350 + shipping for this unit. 

If anyone is interested and planning on attending OzarkCon in Branson (first weekend in April) I could bring it with me.  If it doesn't sell before then, I will have it at Branson in April.

Yep Brian qrp has come a long way.

Too bad hf antennas have not found a way to be miniaturized in the same way.

Re: 40m Net

Bill,

Got back from cards around 9:10 EST.  You were loud as can be and I was ready at 9:13 after a QNI and you were GONE !  A no-no for Nets but at 9:27 I called you just to see if you could here me.

80m for me does not work well, getting set to add another 35ft of wire to see if that helps at all.

I did win 25 cents at cards though !

I appreciate your effort as I host a 2m Simplex Coffee RT at 0800 six days a week and often there are only one or two that stop by but sometimes 8-10 ?
