 690353008636765520 DRAKE L 4B Linear Amplifier Ham radio w/ Power Supply amp

DRAKE L-4B Linear Amplifier Ham radio w/ Power Supply amp Please read all Description prior to bidding Drake L-4B Description: This is the L-4b Drake Amplifier Includes L-4B Amplifier, Power Supply READ ALL This L-4B Amplifier is in excellent cosmetic condition. I will say 95% On the Amp and 80% on the Power supply. If you do a search of my latest sales of Drake equipment you will find a complete Drake set up. I bought these from an private estate sale by family members of a missionary Doctor. After selling all parts including a set of 3-500z Tubes, I received a call saying they found another piece. This Amp was the missing link to the tubes that I sold already. It appears the tubes were removed for shipping purposes and the unit is now empty, as I sold them last month not knowing. This unit is without (2) 3-500z Tubes. As many of the items were still sealed in their original box, It is my belief they were shipped to Peru in the 70s to aid in communication while the doctor worked in the mission field. I believe the equipment for some reason did not find the use that was expected and was boxed back up and remained in boxes since the 70s. There is reason to believe none were used at all. This Amp was wrapped in newspaper dated 1979. Most of the components were Perfect mint. But this Amp was sitting on a table in a cardboard box under a large covered parking area for the last 4 months in Oregon. This upset me too..... The moisture in the rainy air has added some sad surface rust to the screws on the outside of the case and a few marks here and there from being moved around. Otherwise the paint is in excellent condition, with respect to a few marks in photos. The tag on the front cover of the amp shows the unit was possibly never in action. The power supply shows signs of being banged against something on the corner (see photo) Some corrosion on the power supply base. The face of the Amp looks great but not Mint. There are a few minor marks here and there. I took photos of the major marks. There is no VOX Relay cable either. I have taken a photo of the 220 cable showing it looks as though it was never used as it shows no screw marks. Most of the color discolorations you see on the knobs and such are simply light being reflected on the dust or dirt. The knobs will clean up to mint. I am no expert on these Hams. I simply look for evidence of use by my eyes alone. Please look over the photos and use your own expert opinion to make a decision. See my feedback on all the other Drake equipment that sold in the last month. They were all from the same original owner. Each person has been extremely pleased. My guarantee is ofcoarse after good tubes are used to test the unit. I am not an expert or a Ham. I am not ignorant of electronics, but I am no expert on Ham. These Drake Items came from the attic of a family practice doctor whom was a missionary in Peru in the 70s for 3 years. I believe these items were ordered to help communicate during that time. Some of the componants are still boxed and it is not clear if or how much this unit was used. See photos Shipping weight will be near 85 lbs. I most likely ship the 2 units seperately.
