Century 21?

Hi all,

Have recently aquired a Ten-Tec Century 21 QRP transceiver. I'm not that
familar with Ten-Tec in general but I was wondering what the rig is worth
these days. I'm not interested in selling it at the moment but I would like
to know if I ever did. I have the matching keyer, marker generator and
manuals. The rig appears to work fine...only worked a couple of station so
far with what I assume to be about 20 watts full power output. That
combined with a real poor antenna ( a 40 meter dipole with the apex at 20',
center fed element sloping to ground at about a 30 degrees angle, and the
ground element in the attic), I thought I was doing pretty good. The only
thing I don't like about the rig is the dual slope detector. I find myself
on the wrong side of the carrier.

Any other Century 21 owners out there? What's your opinions?
