Had the 950 (which now is ceasing production), and got rid of it pronto. Couldn't handle noise effectively, was an okay lower to mid r...

Re: FT 920 Yaesu ????

The 920 some may say is "older" but it is a stellar performer. It has very nice receive audio and transmit audio, great ergonomics, etc. I have never had one with any problems and any time I parted with it, I regretted it. My last radio was a FT-950 which was a dog in dealing with noise. IF DSP did ...

K9TLP - Anyone know Terry or have any dealings with him?

Anyone know Terry, K9TLP, or have had any recent dealings/transactions with him?
Contacted me regarding a want I have but have not received his Phone Number (when requested) so far, seems hard to get in touch with, so a bit confused. Just trying to make sure someone hasn't hi-jacked his callsign.

W9DCS - Possible Scammer - Possible Hi -Jacked Call

I ran into this individual on QRZ (at least the callsign) offering me funds for my item I had listed, which was slightly above what I posted it for. Then requested I go ahead and send the item, and he was good for the funds, just ask W6.. (which I didn't bother). In another email, told me the funds ...

why is it when someone lists something for sale, you contact them about it, to inquire, ask, etc and you never hear back? Why bother posting an item for sale if you don't have the courtesy to even respond to potential buyers/traders? Why not use Ebay and be done with it? I don't get it. Frequently, ...
