This came from a local group. The 1271 may of particular interest.

What kind of price are you looking for each of these? It’s nice to know where to start with an offer.

All are currently connected to an antenna and can be demoed or we can set up a QSO. I've talked with a few of you using these rigs already. :) These are older radios (mid-'80s), but are well-known for being very good rigs.

It does have its original RAM board, and the battery voltage tested fine; I'd suggest replacing it as a matter of course, though, whenever you get around to it. 
> 2) IC-471H - 440 all-mode. Everything works fine, with two exceptions. First, it seems to put out half power (about 35W); maybe one of the two final transistors is blown. Two, I think it has a loose wire going to the internal speaker; headphones work perfectly (looking at the schematic, I can see which connection may be loose, but I've not tried to fix it yet). I've upgraded this unit with a new RAM board (cost: $60). 
> 3) IC-1271A - 1.2GHz all-mode. I don't have an antenna up for 23cm, but I've used my 440 horizontal loop for low-power testing. I was able to have a QSO on a local repeater with no problems. I do not have an SWR/power meter for this band, either, so I can't verify output. It seems to work fine based on the little use I've given it.
