Eddystone 680X for sale

January 17, 2018 By: chris Category: For Sale

Roger G4PUM in Nantwich, Cheshire has a Eddystone 680x which he has re-furbished with new valves where necessary.  Roger has a valve tester and selected good valves, and will include a spare set with the 680.  The set is working and he has incorporated a Euro-socket to replace the two pin original mains connection which is not safe, and the earthing has been improved through the mains connection and checked with a PAT tester. Otherwise it is original excellent condition, with original components as far as possible. A reflector has been added internally at the top of the dial to improve the illumination by reflecting the light down better.

This is a heavy radio and not really suitable for shipping. Roger is asking £250 or close offers for the radio.  Any inspection welcome.  There is a matching Eddystone round speaker available for £50.

Roger can furnish further detailed photographs and answer any questions at roger@g4pum.net

Eddystone EC958 for sale

June 13, 2016 By: chris Category: For Sale

Dick King M5DIK has a rack mounted EC958 for sale. It was in excellent conditions both visually, mechanically and electrically until a few weeks ago. It was in almost daily use for the last 10 years. Unfortunately whilst transmitting stray RF appeared to have got into the works – there was an almighty bang and a lot of smoke! It is way beyond his diagnostic and repair capabilities so he would rather it go to somebody that appreciates it and could get it working again.

It may be something relatively simple to repair (unlikely – when does life work that way!) So price will be based on an honest appraisal by the buyer as to its true value. Dick is sure he will be able to come to a mutual agreement with a prospective buyer.

Some sketchy details – it does power up, frequency readout works, internal loud speaker works, both IF and RF gain controls have an affect although no received signal noted.  Dick will be happy to discuss on the phone 01923 461446 or via e mail at richardvking@ntlworld.com . Location is Watford, willing to deliver a reasonable distance.
