FOR SALE (Jun 10, 2021) California - MOTOROLA HANDHELD RADIOS -

I have some Motorola Visar handheld radios for sale. These are narrow-band, 5 watt radios. I DON'T recommend a handheld radio for INSIDE A SPEEDER but I DO recommend it for when you are stopped for lunch (or other) and when connecting up to your trailer. Sure, you might need two radios but you'll find many uses for them. The Visar is one of the smallest, full power, fully featured handheld radios ever made. It fits comfortably in the palm of your hand or in your safety vest pocket or on your belt. It has the very same power as radios twice it's size. I ship them pre-programmed with the 3 NARCOA channels. You will still have 13 open slots for other channels if you ever need them.

REMEMBER....I don't recommend using a handheld radio IN a speeder. I do recommend it for OUTSIDE the speeder.

......Price of Radio w/o Battery........$95.00

......New 2,000 mh Battery...............$25.00

......Dual Battery Charger...............$29.95

......Shoulder Microphone..............$29.95

......Shipping.............$19.95

FOR SALE (May 16, 2021) California - DAVID CLARK INTERCOM SYSTEM -

For sale are full feature intercom systems for speeder use. These systems are made by the David Clark Company of Worcester, Mass. They are the same systems that are used by the Class 1 railroads as well as most fire & rescue departments across the country. These intercoms are made exclusively for motor vehicles which makes them perfect for speeder use. They provide complete communication between the car operator and passengers. All functions of the radio are handled by the intercom, both transmit and receive. David Clark intercoms are known for their voice clarity within the car and over-the-air broadcasts. They are designed to be used with most commercial radios but can be used as a stand alone system by itself.

If you are looking for a great intercom for your motorcar....call or email me and I'll be happy to put a system together for you.

FOR SALE (Apr 15, 2021) New Hampshire - a MOTOROLA Mobile Radio and an Intercom for your Railcar ! - With a Mobile Radio installed in your Railcar, you will be able to hear essential communications from the Excursion Coordinators and others regarding the current location of the Excursion Railcars. You will also be able to hear safety messages about conditions on and along the track (tree down at MP81.7, trespassers after the sharp curve at MP93.3 or very poor sight-line at the Clover Street road crossing). You will also be able to advise the E.C.'s of any changes, such as a mechanical problem or any emergency situation.

All of my MOTOROLA mobiles undergo a complete mechanical + electrical inspection prior to being reprogrammed with the three NARCOA Channels and seven NOAA Weather Channels. I have Astro SPECTRA, MCS-2000 and CM-400 Radios in stock. The System capable radios are programmed with all 97 AAR Channels. All radios ship with a complete accessory group, consisting of a Radio Bracket, Hand Microphone + Hang-Up Clip, External Speaker, Power Cables and an EZ-Mount Antenna with pre-attached coaxial connector. I include an Installation Guide that I have specifically written for the Railcar environment with each shipment.

I also have a selection of reconditioned Aviation Intercoms and Noise Canceling Headsets from David Clark, Sigtronics. and Avcomm to make your trips more enjoyable and less stressful. I have an Intercom Interface Box to connect any MOTOROLA Mobile Radio to a standard Aviation Intercom. .It is possible to start with just an Intercom for 2 people and later add a Mobile Radio for full communications with the Excursion. Please Note - I do not sell or support Portable Radios, due to their very limited transmit range and battery capacity. Also, I do not repair or program “Other Brands” of mobile radios, as I do not have the required software, cables and experience to work on non-Motorola radios.

Please inquire regarding price and delivery of a Mobile Radio, Aviation Intercom, Headsets or replacement parts. Please call or write with any Questions !
