While I agree that folks have a right to voice their opinion about sellers who may or may not be greedy and/or buyers who dislike what they believe is a greedy seller, what I don't agree with is adding politics to the topic.

Due to costs, does the 8877 last three or more times longer than the 3-500zg? Which tube is better with the life expectancy/cost fa...

Thanks, Mark I don't know if your FT-757GX to amplifier interfacing issue has been solved yet or not. If...
