Re: Help/opinions on transaction gone wrong with K4MRF

So I've decided to share the seller's call, K4MRF John. The reason why I'm going this far is his lack of concern once the rig arrived in the condition it did, dents in the cabinet and face and not working, it took a week for him to reply after numerous emails. Here is a quote from his only reply to ...

Re: Help/opinions on transaction gone wrong.

Sometimes I think we have to pick our battles, at this point (almost a week later) I still have not heard from the gentleman I made the transaction with after sending three emails. I had a similar situation where I shipped a rig and during shipping some dama...

Help/opinions on transaction gone wrong with K4MRF

I recently purchased a vintage Heathkit rig from John K4MRF using this forum. The seller described the rig in perfect working order, no problems.

Joe Bushel W2DWR honest guy

My transaction with this gentleman was an experience. Not only did I receive my items on time but he also went out of his way to refund me for the difference in shipping cost!

Thank you Joe

Burned by kd8ddw

Boy, would love to hear why people are trying to burn him. At this point I'll take this as "Lesson learned". I can probably get part of my money back by selling the radio as a parts radio and after reading some of the this guy's feedback I am actually glad he refused to exchange the radio for my mon...
