First of, this is my second posting of this radio because I assumed upon PM I would receive and email, not so, so the radio was boxed and put away, I’m now aware of a fair bit of interest over the last few months, my apologies for not getting back to anyone, Ill keep on top of my PMs this time, so once again here is my ‘Sale’

For Sale is my

Lafayette TELSAT 805B Homebase
Speedy C.T.E Linear Valve Amplifier
Zetagi MB+5 Base Mic

All my radio equipment is from a non smoking house and are in great condition, I never use the word mint as so many say it then sell rubbish.
Anyone is welcome to visit me and see what they are buying before purchase and also see it all up and running.

The radio comes with its original box of course :)

This is one of those radios that came from Romania 8 years ago, In all that time I doubt its had more than 30 minutes transmission use and less than four hours on receive, I bought it because of nostalgia and what child hood memories it gave me, so I cleaned it and that was about it.

That said its been connected up to a 11m wire and setup with a Linear valve amp and the out put is as it should be, the radio is around 5 watts output and that ran into the valve amp achieves around 80W, apparently the amp can take 10w in and achieve more output but I've always under run all my gear.

While here in the west country I have given a few calls out and chatted to a couple of welsh guys with no issues on Mids FM.
Those that know about these radios will also know the history, so what I can tell you is that it has not been touched since I bought it those years back.
The cover has not been taken off by me or had any modifications done or work done to bring it into the modern day.

The internal speaker stopped working so I just connected in a external speaker which works fine (included) my guess would be its a dry joint but I don't want to take the cover off to fix it, Id rather leave that to someone else.

Whether you are buying this radio for nostalgia or intend to get it worked on by the companies out their that bring these up to date is your choice.
So you are aware this is a very old radio and to be fair if you are going to use it for SSB, Id have a rig doctor work on it, if its for nostalgia and CB fun then she maybe fine, Ive not used it enough to ever find out its true potential.

I am selling this as a package as a preference, it comes with a Speedy CTE valve amplifier which is all working as shown in the pictures also I will bung my Zetagi MB+5 in with the deal, its in great condition, this mic is not wired up for the radio, you will have to do this yourself, but it is surplus to requirements so it goes as well, the SWR /Matcher is included also.

Im not happy about posting this stuff, its a lot of weight, id hate to see the radio dropped or the valve amp busted and posting would be expensive, I’d be willing to drive within reason, I work long hours so could only go so far.

I live near Weston Super Mare in Somerset, I am happy for you to come and see it all working in situ before you buy it.
Im in no rush, Id rather find the right person who will enjoy the radio for what it is.

There is a 2 inch scratch on the top metal casing but apart from that she is clean as the photo show.

Please PM me for further details.

The radio cost me £300 originally I am selling this job lot for £340

Pictures to come

Regards 003
