Get Ready for the 7th Annual ARRL On-Line Auction
The Seventh Annual ARRL On-Line Auction opened for preview on Tuesday, October 16, and will open for bidding at 10 AM EDT (1400 UTC) on Thursday, October 25. According to ARRL On-Line Auction Coordinator Lisa Tardette, KB1MOI, there is a large assortment of ARRL Product Review items, including an Elecraft KPA500 HF/6 meter power amplifier, an ICOM IC-7410 HF/6 meter transceiver, a Yaesu FT-450D HF 6 meter transceiver, a Kenwood TM-281A 2 meter FM transceiver and an MFJ-998 RT and MFJ-994BRT remote auto antenna tuner.
The ARRL On-Line Auction also features a wide assortment of books, including ARRL Handbooks from the 1920s and 1930s -- most notably, a first edition of the 1926 Radio Amateur’s Handbook -- and a set of three first-day-of-issue covers of the 1964 5 cent stamp highlighting Amateur Radio (see an image of a stamp here).
“Once again this year, bidders will find a large variety of product review equipment, vintage books, novelty items and a number of very special items that have been donated by the crew of the ABC Television’s Last Man Standing, starring Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, KA0XTT,” Tardette explained. “In order to place a bid, you must register on the ARRL On-Line Auction website. You may browse the website and scope out those ‘must-have’ items without being a registered bidder, and you can register at any time during the auction. If you are interested in some great bargains -- and some great fun -- you really need to check out the ARRL On-Line Auction.” The 2012 ARRL On-Line Auction runs through 11:45 PM EDT on October 31 (0345 UTC November 1).
