$25K Deal-O-Century – Brando’s Amateur Radio

Well not really but interesting never the less. Last week one of my compadres, NG3O, tipped me off that someone on ebay was selling Marlon Brando’s amateur radio set up, a milspec HF Xcvr Sunair GSB-900DX. Few knew that Brando (aka Martin KE6PZH and FO5GJ) was a radio amateur while he was alive. No one bid apparently on the $25,000 opening price so it’s likely we will see this radio pop up again somewhere. Never the less it’s worth a look at the expired ebay auction while it’s still up to see the photos which includes the original receipt for the radio gear.
