ICOM HAM/SSB radio, GAM antenna and ICOM AH-4 tuner. All for $899.00

GAM Antenna

The Split Lead antenna eliminates the need for high-voltage backstay insulators. No longer must the integrity of a sailboat’s backstay be compromised by cutting the backstay wire to install expensive RF insulators. The Split Lead antenna simply press-fits onto your existing backstay and secures with a delrin clamp. Plastic ties fastened at intervals around the antenna housing complete a gale-proof connection to the backstay wire.


This auction is for a very nice Icom IC-706MKIIG all mode HF/VHF/UHF transceiver. This radio is in excellent working order and looks great as seen in the actual pictures shown. The Icom IC-706MKIIG is a small compact transceiver which provides 100 watts on HF and 6 meters, 50 watts on 2 meters and 20 watts on 440 MHz. It receives from 30 kHz to 199 MHz and from 400 to 470 MHz and has Mars Capability. It features a removable, remoteable, front panel that allows control of all features. The large LCD display features alphanumeric memory names (9 character) and soft key descriptions. The LCD even supports a simple band scope display. Other advanced features include: IF Shift, RIT, Tone Squelch, Scanning, Noise Blanker, Speech Compressor, Mini Spectrum Scope, UT-106 DSP, and Electronic Keyer. Measures: 6.56" x 2.28" x 7.88".

AH-4 Tuner

The Icom AH-4 coupler covers all amateur bands from 3.5 MHz through 50 MHz with a 7 m (23 ft) or longer wire antenna, i.e. GAM/McKee antenna.

Compact yet durable, it's designed for easy installation in a variety of locations, outdoors, on a back porch or in your vehicle. Weather-resistant construction, using rubber gasket seals, enables operation in all conditions.

Full automatic tuning
The AH-4 is designed for use with Icom HF transceivers. Just push [TUNER] switch on most modern Icom transceivers and the AH-4 adjusts immediately to the minimum SWR. The AH-4 automatically performs tuning operations for mode, power settings, etc. The average tune-up time is less than 2.5 sec. on each band.

We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit."
