I recently had a reviewer return a pair of on loan MU Moving Coil step-up transformers - we'd been talking about getting them back here when I see him at a show, etc but it just did not seem to happen so he fired them back via courier. These are copper wound units with a selector switch for choosing either 1:10 (20db) or 1:20 (26db) step-up ratios. These units regularly sell used for over what I sold them for new - the cheapest I have seen in a quick look online was $800 - approx what they were going for when I made them 5 years or so ago. The high used value is no doubt due to the fact they are now made of 100% unobtanium.
Given the time of year I thought lets auction them off for charity. I've been doing what I can to help out a very small charity in Nepal - one that really does get any donations entirely to the people in need over there - not to tv ads and admin costs...... The details are here: http://www.lostearthadventures.co.uk/about-us/our-charity/
Our hope is to get a water pump and storage system installed this coming year. The full sell price would be donated to the charity - not just the profit. I'll also take care of shipping to the winning bidder.
Lets start the bidding at the $800 price. Please e-mail me with any bids you have rather than posting here. I will keep track of them and send updates to any bidders along the way. Highest bid before new years day gets'em.
