Re: MFJ-959 Antenna Tuner/Preamp manual wanted

MFJ has the manual for the 959C version here: MFJ-959C, ANTENNA TUNER, SWL, WITH PREAMP | MFJ Enterprises Inc

no idea the difference between the original and the 'C' version but probably very little difference.

If anyone has a manual for a MFJ 959 tuner I would love to buy it from you or pay for a photocopy of it.

It is an older model with the old style cream colored cabinet with fake wood-grain sides, 5 knobs straight across in a row, and no meter.

I googled it but found no manual and checked Manual.man but he didn't list that model

Re: MFJ-959 Antenna Tuner/Preamp manual wanted

 

Cliff,

Thanks for the try, but that manual id for the 959C tuner which is much different from the early 959 model.  They re-designed the circuit, and the controls are different.

That is a receiver-only tuner so don’t try transmitting through it. 

I suspect you merely adjust all the knobs for maximum noise. 

The current model has a “C” after it and only 4 knobs, but I would expect the manual to be quite similar.

Good evening, fellow QRP'ers.  Slimming down my collection of keys and bugs and found this one tucked away. It is a Vibroplex Original Standard version, SN 65294 which places it's birthdate some where around 1998. It is still in it's original Vibroplex shipping box with all the original paperwork. 

Just a regular Vibroplex but all shiny and new like.  Put some pictures in an album (titled 'Vibroplex')which I will erase in a week or two. More pictures available - just drop me an email.  Price: $160 with shipping included. 

Thanks for looking.  73  Bob Groh, WA2CKY

Re: 30 Meter Cricket

 

Ron,
 Also, Rich Kennedy (at expandedspectrum systems.com) not only sells the 10.106 & 10.110 MHz crystals (among many other frequencies) that you include with the 30 meter Cricket kits, he also sells them in bulk orders of 100 or more.  So, you don't have to spring for a thousand of them which would be far in excess of you needs for the Cricket kits.
