Re: "FOR SALE" ADS

I believe it is because there is a limit to the size of the ad. Specs on any radio are very easy to find. I see you have been doing just that. I also believe people are more interested in the condition of the radio, what comes with it (mic, power cord, instructions), what type of environment it has ...

None

WB3CEZ: I have no criticisms. I have said this for years. The dumbest statement I hear yelled on the ham bands is: "Use a dummy load!" Sorry, my dummy load isn't the same resonance as my antenna system. Even the so-called "tweaking" using a dummy load doesn't work because the dummy load settings tur...

John N0EE - Good deal!

Got a nice RS HTX-10 for $97 shipped from John. I was looking for a single bander to operate ten meters now that it's open once again. First contact on the rig was with Germany. Exchanged 10-10 numbers. Nice rig and as advertised. He actually shipped the unit before the mo arrived at his QTH. 73, Bi...

Thanks

Thanks for the heads up. I just attempted to buy a homebrew xmtr from this guy. Something didn't feel right. He replied in short spurts. Never seemed to concentrate on how or where to get the money to him. So I came here. I noted your post as of this past MONDAY! Thanks for the heads up! He sent me ...

WN8BOB - Bob - FB trader!

I have never bought or traded a thing via mail since becoming a ham in 1971. I guess the idea made me nervous. Recently, I purchased a Yaesu FT-747 through QTH.com. That transaction went very well and I wasn't afraid to try it since the fella lived about 80 miles down the road a piece. Then I had my...

Hilarious!

Now if you had said the rig was a $19 QRP transmitter, that would have defined the ultimate ham!

No money in it....

You really don't make money with ham ops/swl's. Mine is a part time business.

You really have to have a real job outside the ham biz....unless you are one of the bigger boys like AES or Ham Radio Outlet.

Might I suggest that some of you have your e-mail filters set too high? Certain e-mail services feel that ANY e-mail from a business or a selling transaction is automatically "spam" and is placed in the junk file and/or deleted.
