This ARRL Handbook collection was no small feat and took me decades to put together. I recognize that there is greater value to certain serious collectors in selling as a collection given its general completeness, so I won't sell individually, so please don't ask. I will consider a trade for a current radio such as an IC-7300 or FT-991A.
I will sell and ship internationally to most countries.
(I also have another ARRL Handbook collection: The Second World War Years including the special military edition Handbook. Great for an amateur veteran or amateur military buff. I also have most years from 1946 to 1970 if you need just one of those.)
Serious inquiries only, please. Please direct any questions or requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an amazing, rare early edition collection of the ARRL Handbook with some of the editions in like new, never used condition (!). It is becoming much harder to find any early editions given the lower production numbers and the fact that they are starting to reach 100 years old. Let alone nearly complete sets such as this one.
I have tried to describe the condition of each edition below completely and accurately, although I don’t guarantee it. It is possible that I may have missed something.
1926 - The very first edition when the ARRL Handbook started. This is the rarest and hardest to collect because only 5,000 original copies were made. Most will have disappeared by now. The book, jacket, and binding are in Good physical condition. The pages are in Good condition, and none appear to be missing. Although there is writing on the front (the first owner’s callsign), and inside a few pages, there is some very interesting provenance writing inside including the first owner's QSL card (Old style callsign), the first owner’s notes about the equipment he was using back then (including spark transmitters) and subsequent owners signing it in turn, over a span of 70 years. (I have not signed it but will for completeness if the successful buyer wishes).
1926 (ARRL Reprint) – in excellent As New condition. This allows you to see what the original edition looked like when it was first printed. Even those in the existence of this one are not in this excellent condition. 1927 – The book, jacket, and binding are in Good physical condition. There are a couple of old tape marks on the binding and front edges. The pages are in good condition, and none appear to be missing. There appears to be no writing in or on the book, except for “1927” handwritten on the front.
1929 – The book, jacket, and binding are in Good physical condition. The book has separated from the jacket but could be easily re-glued by a bookbinder. The pages are in good condition, and none appear to be missing. There appears to be no writing in or on the book.
1930 (Soft Copy) – A very rare, As New, unused, unread, clean, and flawless copy of the book. I bought this from the ARRL itself many years ago (and have the provenance to prove it). I don’t believe anyone used this before the ARRL finally sold it to me as the first customer. It must have been stashed away in a print shop closet for many decades. Therefore, this is likely one of the best-condition 1930 editions in existence. The book, jacket, and binding are in like new excellent physical condition. There is a slight yellowing of the edge of the pages (like most of them). There appears to be no writing in or on the book.
1930 (Hard Copy) – A very rare, Fine, copy of the book. It is very hard to find early hard copies, let alone one in this amazing condition. Therefore, this is likely one of the best-condition 1930 hard-copy editions in existence. The book, jacket, and binding are in like new excellent physical condition. There appears to be no writing in or on the book.
1931 – A very rare, As New, unused, unread, clean, and flawless copy of the book. I also bought this from the ARRL itself many years ago (and have the provenance to prove it). I don’t believe anyone used this before the ARRL finally sold it to me as the first customer. It must have been stashed away in a print shop closet for many decades. Therefore, this is likely the best-condition 1931 edition in existence. The book, jacket, and binding are in like new excellent physical condition. There is a slight yellowing of the edge of the pages (like most of them). There appears to be no writing in or on the book.
1932 – The book, jacket, and binding are in Fair condition. The book is starting to separate from the jacket but could be easily re-glued by a bookbinder. The book has had more use and wear than the others in the collection. The pages are in ok condition, and none appear to be missing. There is some writing in and on the book.
1934 – A very rare, Fine copy of the book. I also bought this from the ARRL itself many years ago (and have the provenance to prove it). This is likely the best-condition 1934 edition in existence. The book, jacket, and binding are in excellent physical condition. There are a couple of slight barely visible wear marks on the edges There appears to be no writing in or on the book.
The asking price for this ARRL Handbook collection is $1,500 US plus shipping.

Matched Pair of 3-500ZG Transmitting Tubes, bought from RF Parts in San Marcos, CA on Nov. 23, 2022. Paid US $439.91 + US $101.70 for shipping which is approx. Can. $738 and I had to pay UPS Can. $208.76 for importer charges for a total of Can. $946. SELLING FOR Can. $699 and I will pay the shipping charges to any address in Canada. These tubes are new and have never been used.
Homebuilt replica of the Drake L-4B. Bought this amp from a ham (now SK) in Granisle, BC back in 1994. Worked flawlessly until the input band switch started wearing out and the HV choke caught fire. I have replaced the input band switch and the HV choke but cannot get it to work. Uses two 3-500Z tubes, all bands from 10-160m, works on WARC bands with a tuner between the transceiver and the L-4B input. Comes with a very heavy power supply built into a Department of Transport housing on wheels. This amp is impossible to ship due to its weight. Pickup in Terrace, BC only. I am throwing in a very heavy Hammond T4T Transformer, primary 115/230V, secondary 3450V, power rating 2000 VA (if interested). Again, THIS AMP DOES NOT WORK. Someone with electronics skills can most likely get it to run again. I can send pictures to potential buyers. Selling for $900 or best offer.
ICOM AH-2 tuner and controller unitfor mobile operation (car, boat). Maximum input power 120W. Frequency range 3.5-30MHz when using the AH-2b mobile antenna and 1.9-30MHz when using an antenna element of 36 feet or more. Comes with control cable/plug. $200 includes shipping.
Hustler MO-4 Compact Mast for Hustler resonators, 22 inches long, suitable for deck mounting, includes three tip rods, 3/8" x 24 threads at both ends. HUS-RM20 resonator with tip rod HUS-RM40 resonator with tip rod HUS-RM75 resonator with tip rod Asking $140 for the mast and 3 resonators which includes shipping via Canada Post (sorry, not selling individual items)

High quality G5RV HF antenna, full size version. Made of high quality materials, will last for many years. Terminated with SO-239 socket. I prefer to meetup in greater Vancouver area than ship. Best used with RG-59 or similar 72 ohm coax. Same length as 20 meter half wave dipole. Will work most amateur bands with the aid of a tuner.
