Modified Eddystone 1650/6 For Sale

January 21, 2022 By: chris Category: For Sale

Here we have a modified 1650/6 receiver  being sold by Alan Bamford of Kiwi Trading of Hartlepool. Kiwi are a house clearance specialist and this set comes from the estate of a ham who is sadly silent key. Those of you who are familiar with the 1650/6 will be aware of its history. Originally sold to GCHQ in 1988  it was designed to be computer controlled so did not have manual tuning. However, when they came on the surplus market in the 2000s, a clever engineer called Geoff Steadman came up with a major modification which could restore its manual tuning characteristics. It is not known how many sets were modified but there are a few about. This set has the manual tuning modification, hence the front panel tuning knob. The set powers up but it is offered with no guarantee or warranty. Alan of Kiwi Trading is looking for offer of £500 ono.  And he will pack and ship at cost or it can be collected from Hartlepool. If you are interested Alan can be contacted by email at kiwitrading@talktalk.net Alan is also preparing a list of other equipment from this estate and he will gladly send on to anyone interested, note however that this is the only Eddystone set.

March 24, 2021 By: chris Category: For Sale

The Eddystone go-to spares guy, Ian Nutt, M0ECQ, is selling some old parts which might appeal to restorers of vintage Eddystones. They are not guaranteed and the All Wave Choke part No982 (13-2000 metres) is slightly damaged internally but could probably be restored. 

The 500-100Kc/s converter is apparently unused and comes in its original box. Ian would like them all to go to good homes!
