Super rare Dentron MLX QRP CW/SSB Transceivers---Design prototypes! For sale are my three super rare Dentron MLX Mini Vintage QRP transceivers. These all date from 1982 and were one of the last efforts of Dentron before going out of business. These are monoband CW and SSB rigs that were designed around a Mizuho Company IF board. Dentron added a power amp, the display electronics and some other support boards to complete these radios.
They're quite nicely made and are not hack jobs like some lab "test mules". It's a shame that Dentron folded in 1983, as these would have been nice products at the time. These are exceptionally nicely packaged for protos, in a nice high quality case, and front and rear panels. It looks like the only thing Dentron needed to complete the design process was.... There are two 20 Meter radios and one 40 Meter rig.One 20M is fully functional in CW and SSB and the counter/vfo/receiver is in good working condition. The second 20 Meter radio has receive, audio and a working VFO but intermittent display and no power out of the transmitter I do think the transmitter audio stage is working as I can see the supply current increase as I speak into a mic (not included).
The third radio is a 40 Meter version and will not power up, although I vaguely recall it doing so once upon a time. I have owned these for 20 years and most of the time they've occupied shelf space, though I recall making contacts with the 20M radio at one time. There's no documentation, as I don't believe a manual was ever completed. Fortunately, with one working radio , you'd have a working reference to consult while troubleshooting the other two. I'm a ham and a collector downsizing stuff I've owned and enjoyed for years, not a spinner.
I have done my best at describing these rare radios, and will be glad to answer any questions about them if I can. I pride myself on packing, and will take extra care to make sure you're not disappointed when you open your box.
