KA9CXY estate sale

 Mini-HAMFEST / ESTATE SALE !!!!!!!!!


July 16, 2022  MARK YOUR CALENDAR!!!!!! 





As many of you know, Mike Brandt (KA9CXY) is a Silent Key.  Mike was an avid Amateur radio operator as well as volunteer for many community based organizations.  Mike volunteered many years working with local 4-H, Sherrif’s summer day camp for local kids, Hunter education, and several emergency services to name a few.  Mike worked many years in the Delco Remy/Delphi engineering department in Anderson.


Mike had accumulate a lot of Amateur Radio related equipment/antennas/testers/ETC  and just stuff. 


Terry Evans (WD9HQH) and Gerald Hertle (WA9AGG) are assisting Mike’s widow in selling some of Mike’s amateur radio equipment and related items.  Listed below are some of the items for sale. There is a LOT MORE but just to much to list.   We will be having Mini-HAMFEST / ESTATE SALE on Saturday July 16 at Mikes home (1549 W County Road 50 N, New Castle, IN 47362)   starting at 9 a.m.  to sell items.  We will also sell items on an individual basis prior to July 16. If interested in an item please contact Gerald (765-744-7696) or Terry (765-212-0464)  to discuss or just send an email to  A few items have already sold so don’t wait.  Bargins never wait on anyone.  J


You won’t want to miss this opportunity to get some Amateur Radio items at very good prices.  We have listed some negotiable target prices BUT NO REASONABLE OFFER WILL BE DECLINED. We tried to list the targets well below what is selling on eBay.  Prices will be very aggressive to sell but need to be fair as the proceeds go to Mike’s widow.    


Don’t be afraid to make offers but again “reasonable”.   The purpose of the mini-hamfest is to sell all the items.  Mike’s widow has no use for this equipment. 


Please understand that we have NOT been able to test all of the items so this is an AS IS sale.  Some we have tested and so far all have been good.  We even tested a very old Radio Shack weather radio and IT WORKED.  Some of the items are not in good condition and it is obvious.
