N2JWU, John, good seller.

Do not hesitate to deal with John, whether selling or buying. Honest person and prompt emails replies. Thank you, John, for the nice, near m...

Re: Beware someone saying they are WD5BMC, David

Addendum: It was NOT the scammer who deleted the ad quickly, it was the astute assistants for Scott FOX who saw flaws in the ad and deleted it, evidently while I was in "email conversations" with "David".. Shows you how much Scott and his observers have QTH.com readers foremost in their minds! Thank...

Re: Beware someone saying they are WD5BMC, David

Looking at search data for David in Trumann, AR, it appears he passed away at age 58 which was a few years ago. Further confirms my suspicions. All of the QTH.com users need to refresh their memories about the ways to avoid scam and spam. They are listed on the website and clearly stated.

Beware someone saying they are WD5BMC, David

Yesterday late an ad was placed selling an Icom 7600 for $1800. After several emails, the "ham" refused my picking up the radio and did not want cash laying around his house and could not meet me 1/2 way due to being in a wheelchair.. He would not give me his telephone # to discuss his rural address...

someone using W9VC call in a buying scam

I had a spammer today wanting to buy a microphone item I have on QTH.com, and the reply came from W9VC supposedly, but turns out the IP was from out of the USA and the spammer wanted to send me a cashiers check within 3-5 days and for me to send package to Texas.

Simply put, if you sell something do your research from dozens of sites to find out the reasonable asking price. Best to start a bit higher initially and THEN go lower if needed, based on inquiries or lack thereof... If you get a LOT of offers to buy and feel you were too low in your advertised pric...

Re: Regarding the CONDITION of equipment for sale or trade.

Excellent for all to reread! I was one of 3 who developed the CCA grading scale the Collins Collectors use now, way back in the mid 1990s. It sure gets guys to within at least one grade of each other. The other end of the trading world has one guy saying mint or excellent when it is actually good at...

Boy, if you read his QRZ.com bio and such, you would think he is a local VIP and would not take a chance on his community "friends" finding out about his ham dealings and hurting his "reputation".. What a chance he is taking IMHO. Thanks for the heads up for future ads that turn up under his call!
