{Collins} FS: 75A-4 & 75A-2


I have two very nice Collins A-line radios for sale: 

* A 75A-4, one of the most sensitive I've ever played with,
  and a CCA "Excellent" in appearance

* A 75A-2 that got brought back from the grave, CCA "Very Good".  

Both have been extensively refurbished and repaired.  See 
details below.

Will ship at cost if absolutely necessary, but prefer pickup 
in Chapel Hill, NC, or will deliver to Orlando Hamfest, or
hamfests in the Carolinas or Virginia.

Thanks, and 73, John K4OZY
