You need to be extra careful about buying Rigs on Ebay. I know there are a lot of good Hams disposing of gear on Ebay, but there are some who could care less what they sell.
I have run into several lately. You start asking questions and they start with I really don't know or I just don't have the time to check. My favorite I have been seeing lately is I don't have the cord so cannot test it. Check out thier other items for sale and completed sales by them and find they have been selling Ham Gear for months ????
My biggest complaint is the ones who take a perfectly good rig and remove the filters from it any way they can and list them seperately. They want as much for the "stripped" rig as it would be worth with all filters installed. The as someone put it " I am not going to be out bid at any price buyers" still purchase them. I would love to see thier faces when they find out it is going to cost them another $125 to $175 to get a filter.
Guess I am getting too old and Grumpy, or older and wiser one ???
