Secure Motorola Saber portable fleet - digital encryption
System is three Motorola Saber III portables covering UHF 450-470 megacycles. Each radio is equipped with DES-XL digital encryption. Radios are 120 channels and will scan. High powered and digital readout. Can program some freqs and secure keys to your spec if licensed to those channels (can't sell radios programmed on someone's police frequency without authorization), else you can program on your own; inquire. Sold as fleet only. Included with system is a Motorola 3011CX Keyloader (KVL) and Saber cable so you can program your own secure keys, which you will want to do periodically.
Also included are an operating manual, a stub duck antenna, new 1800 mAh nicad and an excellent 110VAC mains drop in charger for each radio.
This is federal government tactical digital encryption, not toy inversion. User should be familiar with use of encryption. User also should be familiar with high end Motorola communications gear. This is serious communications suitable for life critical operations, such as executive protection work and is still current issue with Secret Service details and dozens of federal agencies. Sale restricted to legitimate and serious parties. Call to discuss. Note: this fleet *can* be exported to any 'non axis of evil' country. Radios were approx $3000 each when new. Fleet of 3 radios, chargers, antennas, batteries, keyloader and keyloader cable is $1000.
Steve's personal TSCM toolkit
Banjos. B&K Telephone Test Set with meter for quick reads of loop voltage and current, both on hook and off hook.
*Potent* UV inspection light. Extension cord. Test amplifiers for misc audio purposes. Telephone toner and banana (banana listens for toner and has a built in speaker so you don't have to use it with a butt set).
Much more. This kit went with me everywhere and is the first thing we grabbed, and where we always were going for all the little odd things you need on a sweep. Note we used this for surveillances as well as TSCM. This kit also was used several times as a prop by Gene Hackman and Will Smith on Enemy of the State where I had it with me anyway for work I was doing installing the surveillance devices. Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott, the producer and director, liked the idea of it being my personal kit, for real, not phony propmaster eyewash, and the worked it into several scenes. When you see Hackman installing all the video and audio surveillance, he's working out of this exact kit. So it's movie history as well as my 30+ year personal black bag.
If you bought all this separately, you'd have to hunt all over and buy from many different places. If you're getting started, this is the way to go. Shipping will be expensive as case is not light. Will build a cardboard box around it and leave the carrying handle exposed so it won't be tossed as badly. Equipment inside will be padded for shipping though the case now is foam lined. Complete kit with all described, and more.

Portable X-Ray machine
System can inspect anything up to 7 inches. High resolution, high intensity machine is in the shape of a "U". At one side is a Toshiba 60kV (0.1mA) X-Ray tube, shining across the opening of the U to a 2 inch screen at greater than 40 lp/mm resolution. Usable in full daylight. Operates approx. 20 minutes from internal rechargeable battery (supplied), or indefinitely via external 12 VDC, 110 or 220 VAC mains.
System is a sales demo, and in perfect condition.
Secondary uses are veterinary, EMT/ambulances, sports (X-Ray a player's limbs right on the playing field and inspect for fractures), EOD, contraband, narcotics, mail/parcel inspection, quality control or failure analysis, even inspecting children's Halloween candy for foreign objects.
A portable X-Ray is an extremely useful tool for serious TSCM inspections. It is especially useful when used in conjunction with an NLJD (how do you verify objects tripping the NLJ, like the football trophy on the CEO's desk?). And while not offered or suggested for the purpose, an X-Ray is a very impressive device to the customer, where you literally can look inside suspect devices. Everyone has an OSCOR anymore. How many have an X-Ray? The customer can *understand* the X-Ray, where all other TSCM gear is over their heads. Great for dog and pony shows AKA demos, too.
How do you inspect 40 or 50 telephone handsets on a large job? With this machine, you slide them through one by one and the job is straightforward. Of course, you need to know something about surveillance devices so you recognize one when you see it. I dummied up a phony bug in a telephone handset for demo purposes, and it is very impressive. You actually can inspect the quality of the solder joints on the dummy bug under the X-Ray.
Remember, this basically is a new unit, not tired old used, "refurbished" or "overhauled" pieces with low resolution, low brightness and low penetration. The last time I had these they sold in one day, and they were refurbished units. Only one available now. Prices have risen considerably and supply much more scarce since 9/11.
Weighs 6.6 pounds. Ships in custom fitted padded aluminum briefcase. X Ray intensity within BRH guidelines, but be responsible. These are the high resolution, high intensity models, in current manufacture.
Note this device actually is a fluoroscope, not an X-Ray machine. X- Rays are still snapshots like at the dentist, and use film. Fluoroscope is moving pictures, like watching television, on a screen. This results in a much higher level of radiation, as the source is transmitting X-Rays continuously, not just a snapshot like a camera. You can see the mechanical movement of parts inside a wristwatch. As long as you hold the trigger down, you watch moving images. To protect the X-Ray generating tube from overheating, since this is a high powered unit, there is a 20 second timer. After 20 seconds of continuous operation, the machine shuts off, but resets instantly as soon as you release the trigger. 20 seconds is a long time, and you will get in the habit of pulling the trigger when you are inspecting an object and releasing it when you aren't looking. At a practical level, you'll probably never see it time out.
Yes, you can X-Ray your body members, but it's not a smart thing to do. I did X-Ray my wife's suspected broken foot once to decide whether we should go to the emergency room (we did). They were quite taken aback that we owned our own fluoroscope. I said, 'doesn't everyone?' I am a smart ass sometimes.
TDR - Riser Bond Time Domain Reflectometers.
If you need a TDR (and if you don't have one and are thinking about sweeping telephones, you need one), keep reading.
As you all know, I am a major big time fan of Riser Bond 'yellow box' TDRs. I've owned every model they've made, used every model, and sold every model, to the tune of probably a hundred machines. They're by far the easiest to use, most logical, most capable and most rugged TDR out there, and well suited for TSCM. A TDR will become a main tool, and once you master it (a few evenings’ work), you'll be very confident, and a fairly wicked telephone sweeper.
Radios & Accessories
R7000 receiver service manual Photocopy, for $50, If you bought your R7000 from us and can document that fact, copies are $20. Long bedsheet schematics are copied as individual pages and you can tape them together yourself. These manuals are long out of production, ICOM cannot supply them and they are quite valuable. If you have an R7000, keep your eyes open for service manuals and snatch them up if you find them.
