Re: {Collins} The "RARE" Collins transceiver that sold on eBay for $4, 490 - I have the connectors



I don't believe that it was Collins at all, just a very close emulation of the KWM-2 the tooling is way too good to be a garage job. I suspect that it may relate to Central Electronics and the Zenith venture. Not too many people can undertake that degree of tooling and layout casually. The name SSB Predator sounds like 10-4 good buddy, I do have a problem with a big shop like Halli or Zenith going down that road, somewhere somebody that is 4.5K$ poorer is smiling when next seen in the bay it will start at $10K the greater fool rule applies. I also have a pal that worked for Ted Hunter I'm gonna ask him Bandit--Predator; could be. 73 MC HNY Ted WA8ULG ----- Original Message ----- From: "Tom" <url4603rd@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: "Ted Hartson" <awombat@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>; "Gary J FollettDukes HiFi" <dukeshifi@xxxxxxxxxxx>; "<collins@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>" <COLLINS@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The thing of interest, is that there was at least 2 people that thought it was worth that price, for it to get to that point. One bidder cannot make the price go up. I'm sure that I'm not the only one here that would like to know the "secret" to why this radio was worth that price?
