Drake TR7

I have the opportunity to acquire one of these in perfect working order, it comes with the Drake meter and Drake VFO that match the radio, it has been modified to work on 11 meter. What are your thoughts about this radio?

I think the TR7 was one of the best radios Drake made, it had a full synthesized receiver and it was one of the first with digital readout of frequency. To me it would depend on the price. You could look it up on the internet and see what they are going for.

Thanks gentlemen, the radio was sold before I could make an offer. Maybe I'll have better luck next time.
