The rigs

Kenwood TS 570 D (Second Hand)
Icom IC706 Mk2G
Trio TR9000 bought as new 1985 - came out of retirement 2011 after 19 years in the garage. Only fault is the tone burst is not working
Icom IC706 Mk2G 
FT 450 Purchased off another ham on e Bay, paid by cheque. When it arrived it had an undeclared fault which the seller denied existed. As I did not pay by PayPal, a payment method shown as accepted by the seller but refused when I originally used that method, I had no comeback. The rig is in for repair at the moment.
