JCH: It's really a ham related problem. I for one want to know if certain hams are crooks whereever they buy or sell. QTH.COM shouldn't be isolated in a world all of it's own. I agree with the mindset - don't post your ebay ads here, but I think we all need to be forewarned about troublesome hams wh...

While following this thread (and the other one on this topic), it seems to me that the radio club that he originally had stolen a rig from taught him a good lesson. It's ok to steal, and if you are caught, people will work with you, and let you pay them back, or give the the radio back with no penal...

I think that you did the right thing Scott. I am glad that you posted this and 'aired it out' with us.

It reminds us that there are morons within the ham community that we must be aware of. I don't want to deal with types like that.

Thanks for the heads up.

Yep ... right ...

Informative, timely, and pleasant emails are the key to a good deal. Now I know of some crooks that can sell their grandmothers and smile ... that's why it is a good idea to have them always include verifiable tracking numbers. :wink:

Callsign or some psuedo name

Rick ... it's been my experience that having a callsign doesn't necessarily guarantee a safe deal ... true, a callsign can add a little comfort, you know his name, address etc, but it still doesn't guarantee anything. But on the other hand, I tend to agree with you, if I purchase ham equipment from ...

Over-reaction

I can understand RL's overreaction to a point. I do think that RL pulled the trigger a bit too fast though. But it looks like the deal has finished successful.
