Another thought...
I have found used gear at radio dealers, (R&L Electronics and Universal Radio) for less than some are asking here in the web. In addition, they mormally offer a 90 day warranty on a lot of stuff.

Return Emails

My apologies to all the readers for repeating this thread. I know this has been written about before, but I thought it needed repeated. This weekend really was a frustrating time. Here is Southern Ohio we got socked in with a blizzard that pretty much meant three days in the house. So what to do? Ge...

Photos

I'm inclined to agree with you, but give the seller the benefit of the doubt. It may not be the photo is hiding defects, it may just be a sign that the person taking the picture doesn't know how to use their camera! Which brings to mind another question, If they can't figure out how to use a camera,...

How many times have you read a posting asking for help on a technical issue or needing information for a problem. I have responding to many over the years, and most of the times everything is ok.

Smoking vs non smoking

Well Jerry, I know you said no opinions, but I think when you ask a question the only answer you can get is going to be somewhat opinionated. I am sure this thread can gather up a bunch of opinions on what this means. So I have the honor of being first.... I bought a radio from a guy that I forgot t...

Swapping

Al, your right! This is an amateur radio board, and I agree it should be limited to amateur items when posting an ad. What I am referring to, and not doing a very good job of making it clear, is..... An ad is posted that has the tag line, sale or trade for ?????. So you email the guy and say, ok, wh...

Swapping

To K9XR I forgot to mention, there is a web site that accepts darn near anything listed in a ad. It is primarily for swapping, although there has been a scat few items that actually were sold. The site is by invitation only. We attempt to keep our members above board on the honesty factor. Tom, N8PQB

Don't misunderstand my thread, I was not saying its ok on your site, I certainly don't have that choice. I was merely stating the obvious difference between owning and using, and how the law applies.

Legal/Illegal

Least we get too far off the subject, let us all remember there is nothing illegal about owning type accepted or not, 11 meter radios any more than it is illegal for a technical to own a HF rig. It isn't the ownership that is illegal, its the use of the rig that makes it a violation. Yes its probabl...

Ham radio site

Wally, I couldn't agree with you more. Its supposed to be ham radio stuff. I recently seen a house for sale. I guess because it had an antenna he didn't want to take down, that made it a ham related ad. hi hi I think Scott and the monitors do a respectful job of deleting ads that don't belong. But, ...

Most of the time this is caused by multiple presses of the submit button. At times QTH gets so busy that when you hit the submit button it doesn't take immediately, so some will click the submit a second time. This will post the ad twice.

I somewhat agree. IMHO, if someone refuses to send pictures when requested, I wonder what is being hidden. I have seen digital cameras as low as $29. No its not a fancy one, but it will work. I have a hard time accepting the 'I don't have a camera thing". To be successful in selling/trading ham gear...

Ebay

These are among the many reasons why its not smart to buy off Ebay. I think this especially applies to ham gear. Many times I have seen the tag lines on ads on QTH saying, "If not sold by "some time frame", it goes to Ebay". This tells me its probably not a good piece of equipment in the first place...

Not quite sure how to write their ad in Notepad, and save it, in case they need to use it again. I think there are some who shou...
