PARC notice to advertisers - thank you for reading
Various complaints regarding the PARC Swap Page being used for commercial purposes were noted. However, the Club welcomes all suppliers of ham equipment and will preferably not create a separate commercial section.
The Club would however like to make the following rules:
Local commercial firms should make a simple worded-only placement with an indicative picture of newly manufactured or imported equipment priced in South African Rand with a link to a relevant website for further detail.
Trading hams - with no personal website - when advertising imports or NOS with South African pricing, are to avoid the commercial spreads of that equipment and instead furnish main specifications, an indicative photo plus a link to the equipment site if available. Second hand items should be photographed in their current state and described as usual.
These rules do not prevent any commercial or private advertising but rather introduce a different format without enormous real estate advertisements and then have links to click for more detail.
Simple rules for a nice presentation: Make use of the horizontal space available. 800px maximum. Photograph multiple items next to each other. Prevent background clutter. Use a photo editor to crop away what is irrelevant. Placements with extremely large photos will summarily be removed.
PARC is in no way responsible for bad deals and will not mediate with, or compensate any of the parties involved.

Estate (Amateur Radio & Technical) of Hans KAPPETIJN SK (ZS6KR)
Hans SK before his passing, designated me (ZS6ARF) to
manage his complete Amateur Radio and Technical inventory. In the
process of wrapping up of the estate, I have now been appointed in writing by the executor of the
estate to deal with said inventory, and I will soon start to make
items available inviting offers to purchase. I will mainly make use of the PARC
website. The wishes of Hans SK were threefold:
1) I will take complete
control and secure his Amateur Radio and Technical inventory,
which I have now done and all items has been transported to a secure
2) I will sell items from this inventory at a fair
price, which I know is subjective. Late 2022, myself and Hans SK, spend weeks detailing a spreadsheet
of his inventory which includes pricing we deemed fair.
We moderated by comparing to pricing of similar items on offer be it
as new or used, local and outside South Africa. I will make items available with these
prices as a reserve (minimum) price. I expect a demand for a few items
where I will then indicate the minimum (reserve) price but invite
offers. In these cases I will accept an offer based on:
3) The item will go to a purchaser that will utilise the item for own
use and not purchase to resell within a short period at a profit, i.e an ideal case would
be someone that struggle to afford the item at a new price but can have a opportunity to purchase at a fair price. This means the offer I accept will not necessarily
be the lowest or highest as I will be considering the wish that it
must go to someone that will utilise it. There are known “buyers and sellers”
which in my opinion do provide a appreciated service to the local Amateur
Radio community, but it is unlikely that I will transact with if an
offer is received, as it will be contrary to the wishes of Hans SK that sales from his inventory should not be used for profit making other than for the estate where the proceeds goes into the estate for distribution to the nominated beneficiaries.
Where an item is involved that can emit RF, I will require a copy of
a valid Amateur Radio licence. Where applicable, I will test the item (I am skilled and have a professionally
equipped RF workbench), for manufacture
functionality, specification and purpose and provide a report as proof with the item. I reserve the right to investigate and refuse
any offer made as to establish authenticity and avoid scammers. Any items will only be released once payment has been
cleared and transferred into the estate account. Pickup at my house in Edenvale is preferred, but in Pretoria can also be arranged. Otherwise the buyer can
arrange for collection at buyers cost, I recommend the Courier Guy
for bigger items and Post Net for smaller items.
As the bulk of the
inventory are parted items like RF connectors, components, some valves,
switches etc, many difficult to procure, I will make future posts on these items.
I have available a couple of these power amplifiers, brand new, in original packaging. The unit is perfect to work QO-100 on SSB and digital modes using a 0,8m dish or larger. I have pages of logs worked with a such an amp and an ADALM Pluto. The units are available at R800 excluding shipping. Please contact me if you want to procure one.
Available, my Ameritron AL-811. Last tested with David ZS1DDK, it would peak at almost 700w. Amp has low hours. This is rated at 600w, I would think on SSB, not on a 100% Duty Cycle mode. Not to be couriered, you need to arrange a lift from Beaufort West or Willowmore. R20000 firm, new price is $1500... (more pictures can be sent via WhatsApp or email) Contact Kobus 0828811164
