A sleeper

Ten-Tec Triton IV (540), Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

Still a great CW rig with a wonderfully quiet and sensitive receiver. Of course it has the legendary Tern Tec QSK. Lacks any WARC bands or general coverage. It's a very basic rig by today's standards, but would make a great addition to any CW operator's shack.

Ten-Tec Triton IV (540), Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

I purchased 3 of these as a package, all in various states of “ not working “

Got all 3 working FB.

Simple good sounding transceiver.

I give build quality a 4 because TT went very cheap on the enclosure.
