Re: DO NOT Send Pic of Buyer's Call Sign!

By the way, I am in no way implicating that Lloyd is the actual scammer.. I have no doubt that his account was hacked .. If anybody knows Lloyd, please let him know!

DO NOT Send Pic of Buyer's Call Sign!

It just dawned on me. I was selling a HF rig here on swap.qth. A prospective buyer quickly emailed and said he would take it at my price. Then he asked me, for protection of scammers, to take a picture of the radio with his call sign "very close to the radio." I said sure - (he probably wanted to ma...

Re: Rant about newer transceivers

Baofeng radios are not very good at all.. Just read the review in QST magazine (Nov. 2015) and you will see why. I bought a few of them and they actually do ok, but in weak signal areas, they purely suck compared to other hand helds like kenwood or yaesu. I travel the same road every day and every n...

Re: Huh?

I would bet that they sold it and forgot to remove the listing... many times I see items for sale on MULTIPLE sites (QRZ, Ebay, QTH, and eham) all at once. So I'm sure that's all it is. Maybe they sold it on another classified site and forgot it was even listed. I haven't had much of this issue (and...

Re: 40 meter ham stick.

You will most definitely need a tuner to run on anything other than 40 meters. Or, if you'd like to use one of them on a different band, you can peel back the black plastic covering to expose the copper wire that is wound on the fiberglass. De-solder from the top and unwind from the coil and re-sold...

Re: Why are hams so cheap?

When I see something I want, I wait until one comes up at a good price.. But when I see the good price, I send an email or call and say I'll take it at your price. No offers, no haggling.. It's already a good price, so why risk losing it altogether? If I know its a good price, other hams do too and ...

I can't believe nobdy would post an encouraging word to help you get started again. Oh well here goes.. I hope you will someday read this.. I also fell away from the hobby only to return 25 years later, and yes, cw is still alive and well! I'm mostly a cw operator on all the bands.. Wires work well ...
