The site works best if you identify the ham with whom you had the transaction so others will know and that ham will have the opportunity to respond.

Disagree but whatever works for you. Photographs (detailed ones) combined with using paypal can save the day if you have to dispute a transaction for a piece of equipment that arrives in a different condition than what was represented. Anyway, I am not going to comment further. Just trying to assist...

I have had a paypal account for years and never lost a cent. Of course, I don't keep funds in there. They are transferred out as soon as they are received. Far more protection than if you send a check or wire transfer. To each their own.

Sorry about your experience. I follow 2 simple rules in my purchases. Insist on photographs and only use paypal. If the seller does not wish to comply with these rules I walk away.

Need to correct the call! W4AJF

Hi Paul.

Sorry. Just realized that I had Adam's call incorrect. It is W4AJF or just look under honest, easy to deal with, trustworthy ham.

Sorry about the mistake on the call Adam. Take care.

K4AJF; Simply the best

No surprise here. Another seamless, pleasant and thoroughly enjoyable transaction with Adam. Is there anyone out there that is as easy to deal with it and that you can trust implicitly. I don't think so.

Thanks again and take care on the left coast my friend. Best to the family.

Someone has hijacked this fine ham's call and is advertising an Icom 7800 for sale at a discounted price ($5,800). I contacted VK3BBB using his qrz.com address and asked him if he was selling the rig and he is NOT. Tip off was, as usual, price too cheap and will only accept a bank wire transfer. Buy...

I have spoken with Marc in the past and while I have never purchased any gear from him, it is pretty clear that he operates a retail store that he sells equipment through. I have never seen him try to hide that and in fact he advertises on this site with full disclosure.

Why are you critical of Paypal? Haven't they segregated these funds for return to you or at least prevented the seller from accessing them? BTW, in a communist society, your right to freedom of speech, exercised in this forum, might well have landed you in a Gulag.

You are correct that I was going to leave that matter alone, but if now another ham is posting a complaint about a separate transaction (KN4N had an eerily similar transaction that he posted last month), shouldn't the general ham community know about it?
