Radios For Sale

Kenwood TS-590S(K)

NOW SOLD! Thanks Stephen 🙂


Flex Radio 3000

HF-6m, multimode, 100 watts. Boxed with power lead and Fire-Wire cable. Manuals and software free to download from the Flex Radio website. Very little use, but works 100%. The radio has a few light scratches on the top of the casing – this does not affect performance in any way.

Price: £750 (firm)

The reason I’m selling this radio is to scale down my shack… it has filled up too much and I would like some space back!

Ofcom has published a list of revoked callsigns…….

Seemingly revoked because the user has not renewed their licence.

On first glance two Manx calls are in it.

MD3MXQ – no idea?

MD3MXU – I think that was Julie from Agneash. I think they moved abroad to England.

MD3WKJ – J Kelly?

If you know them perhaps you could advise them.
