Hi all!

Just joined this forum and found some good reading, thx

I am looking for a (vintage) Sailor 2182 watch-keeper receiver type 501 to place in our radio-room of an old lightship we are restoring in the UK. Does anyone knows one for sale?

Many thanks!

Gentle waves

Jan ;-)

Good luck with your quest Jan but I do not honestly hold much hope that you will find what you are looking for here. Watchkeeping receivers were not common on yachts -but you never know

You can try sending an amail to a guy I bought my Sailor R109 from. He is in the Netherlands, is a professional communications technician and, as a hobby buys, renovates and sells old radio gear. Very nice guy. If anyone can help you he can.

His name is Kees and his email tebuwil(at)kpnplanet.nl

Good luck // Stephen

Hi Jan,

I know it's a year on, but are you still looking for the Sailor R501 Watchkeeping Receiver? If so, I have just acquired one and it would be great to see it but to good use on your your light vessel. We were converting a tanker to a new role as an FPSO (oil rig basically) and a lot of the original bridge gear came out inc. the receiver which I rescued along with a few other bits. Anyway, drop me a line if you're still after one.

Regards,

Lee

Hi Lee!

yes, I am still looking for one to complete the radio-room on the lightship! It doesn't need to be in working order as long as it looks ok.

Can you drop me an email to discuss how we can progress on mcelsen AT hotmail.com

Many thanks!

Jan
