I believe that $1050.00 (shipped CONUS) would be a fair price for the FT-847.

I have purchased 847's in near mint condition (minus INRAD's) for as low as $750.00.

Buyer Protection

Use PayPal to pay for your purchase.

!0+ rating

It is easy to have an item that is rated as 10+ The trick to this is that the rating system used is 0 - 100, not the 0 - 10 that we so often use. If someone tells me that an item I am interested in purchasing is rated as a number, then I make certain to ask what their rating is based on (0-5, 0-10, ...

Thanks for the info.

It will come in handy if I ever happen to consider a deal with Sean Ross, KK4CWA.
It's a shame he didn't send all that was listed in the ad and that he used such poor packing and shipping techniques.

I have dealt with Ike, K9IKE, several times as a buyer and seller with no problems.
He has always been a straight shooter with me and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to deal with him again.

John Brambora - W7GX

I purchased an Alliance HD-73-1 rotor controller from John Brambora - W7GX.
John shipped the controller quickly and it arrived in excellent condition. Well-packed and in better physical condition than I expected. I would purchase from John anytime with complete confidence in his word. No worries.

I would then say that I am cancelling the transaction unless he/she could provide proof of money order purchase (copy of MO receipt tab). If no proof within 24hrs, I'd...

I see no problem with posting that an item is 'sold pending funds' , so long as the ad is removed when the funds are actually received. When I see an item that is marked as such I would think that it shouldn't take a month to receive the funds. I responded to an ad just today that was marked as 'sol...

SOLD Listings

I see that this is still an ongoing issue. I find many ads marked as 'SOLD' as well as ads marked 'SOLD PENDING FUNDS' several weeks after last edit to mark them as such. Seems like wasted bandwidth to me.
