I have for sale a Heil Goldline desktop microphone for R1000. This microphone has two microphone cartridges fitted, a studio cartridge for high quality studio recordings, but also the Heil HC-5 cartridge which is the right one for amateur use. If you like to receive good comments about the quality of your audio, you need this mic. Check out the Heilsound website to hear what this mic sounds like.
Buyer to pay postal costs.

My Kenwood TS570S transceiver is still available for sale but I will reduce the price to R12000 and supply it with the standard hand held dynamic mic that it was supplied with. The transceiver was well looked after and is in excellent condition. It is fitted with a high stability crystal so the frequency accuracy is very good.
