Seller's Comments and Description:
Barrett 950 Commercial HF Transceiver with local and remote control heads, complete with all mounting hardware, owner's manual and cloning cable. Also comes with a Barrett 910 Autotuner and two antenna whips, standard 5' one and heavier 7' one that has a base spring. The radio is currently programmed with VKS-737 Radio Network frequencies plus all common Amateur 80 to 10 metre voice frequencies in 5KHz steps. ANZA 20 Metre frequency (14.183MHz) is also programmed.
Additional amateur frequencies and modes can be programmed into any blank memory channel through the front panel. This transceiver is rated at 100 Watts PEP for Australian use. Can output 20 Watts PEP by selecting low power.
The five photos shown here are of the actual unit, currently installed in my vehicle. The radio has always been used in a non-smoking environment.
The Barrett 950 Series radios have noticeably better sensitivity than the later 2050 series. This was particularly evident when VKS-737 replaced the 950/960 base sets with 2050/2060 ones in their 19 base stations and found that their ability to receive weak signals was degraded compared to the 950 transceivers.
A recent check of this radio by an authorised service technician revealed that the receiver has excellent performance and exceeds specifications. The transmitter output was measured at its specified rated output. On air testing confirmed that the radio works very well under all operating conditions. The autotuner was also tested on all installed frequencies and operates according to manufacturer's specifications without any known issues.
Currently owned by VK3ARM (VKS-737 Base Operator). I am offering it for sale because I am buying a new car and want to eventually upgrade to a more compact radio with tapped whip (to suit smaller car). My Barrett has worked faithfully and reliably on the VKS-737 Radio Network and on Amateur Bands. The new owner can have the radio reprogrammed by any VKS-737 Supporting Business to suit individual needs. Ring me on 0448 026 733.
