Swap and Shop
Swap and Shop is a free service provided by the Westcoast Amateur Radio Association, and is for the non-commercial buying and selling of amateur radio & related equipment and accessories. Please email your requests to Swap and Shop Web Editor, Faith, (va7ana at shaw dot ca).
We will place them on the web, and announce them at the end of the regular WARA Monday net. Each listing will be posted for a minimum of four weeks, after which we MAY delete it. Please include a current email address and/or a telephone number where people can contact you. Please contact us again once you have finished with your request.
As well, long time member and WARA supporter Rick Williams VE7TK, manages the HF Swap Net. Click here. Donations would be appreciated towards the repair and maintenance of the repeater and this site. Click on the Donate icon in the lower left side of this page.

- Icom 2GXAT 2m 7 watt handheldwith battery (without charger. Chargers and batteries are available through eBay at about $39 each). Asking $75.00
- Realistic HTX-202 VHF transceiver and Realistic HTX-404 UHF transceiver C/W various battery packs and a charger to suit one of the packs. These radios do not have a wide open front end, they actually have a helically tuned front end narrowing down the receive so they are not so prone to intermod problems in the down town areas. All ham radios should be built like this. Asking $100.00 for the lot.
- APRS Setup C/W TAD MG commercial radio, Tiny Track 3 microcomputer tracking unit, mag mount GPS module, 1/4 wave mag mount whip. All ready to go except you need to reprogram the tiny track module with your own call letters and how often you wish to transmit position updates. Asking $125.00, a bargain
- 3 each Icom H-16 VHF commercial duty hand held radios with 6 bay desk charger. Output power is 3 watts with smaller battery and 5 watts with larger battery. Two batteries are the large ones and one is the smaller size. Great value. Asking $100.00 for the lot.
Money from the sale of these items will be to the Youth Education Amateur Radio Education Society enrichment class at Victoria Central Middle School.
Note that all the radio battery packs need to be re-built with new cells. "All Battery" in Langford is only one company that has a service for that or do it yourself if you have the tools.
