I never had the pleasure of trading with AJ but I know he loved to buy and sell, and had a stellar reputation. It looks like we lost one of the good ones...RIP, my friend.

The real EA2TKC is aware of the scammer, as is EA2CSD - another call the scammer has used.

I'm a few days late, but let me toss in my 2 cents' worth. If you're trying to buy a fairly common item, such as an IC-7000 or a PROIII, there are plenty of them being advertised for sale these days. Don't let one particular seller get you all worked up. Unless it's something extremely rare just wai...

Yes Marc is a dealer. He seems to pull these bait-and-switch deals all the time. Just check others' feedback about him. Marc tried to do the same thing to me when he agreed to sell me a used Palstar tuner, then when I went to pay him he decided the used tuner had "just" been sold to someone else, bu...

According to www.vanityhq.com, WB8USA belonged to Mary E. Deady of Port Charlotte, FL, from before 1981 until the license expired on 5/5/97. It was next assigned to John T. Shelton of Blue Ash, OH, sometime in 2004. I suspect the other names associated with that call sign are typos.

I used to use eBay a LOT for both buying and selling.

Yes indeed, the Robyn Digital 500 is a ham rig. I had one as my first HF transceiver back in the '70s. The one I had worked OK on most of the bands, but a previous owner had butchered the 10 meter PA section, probably trying to convert it to CB. It wouldn't generate more than a hundred milliwatts on...

Recently did a transaction with John, N5FJ, for a radio that he was selling for the estate of a silent key. Shipping was quick, and the radio was VERY well-packed. It is in much better condition than I expected, and works like a champ. As far as I'm concerned you can deal with N5FJ with confidence!
