Re: Someone is using my call and is posting false ads

You can start Frank by updating your QRZ profile to include a valid email address for you. Most of these scammers look for a call sign to hijack that does not have any contact info in their profile.

Good luck!

Re: G3IKW POSSIBLE SCAMMER?

No dealing with him Ros. From past experience I would say that the call sign in question has been hijacked and you are NOT dealing with the real owner of that call sign. Just my opinion from past experience with many,many scammers over the years. Your guy fits the MO to the exact specs! You need to ...

Re: BEWARE OF PAUL, WI9L

Just a heads up. There was a posting back in 2013 that says Paul's call sign was hijacked by scammers. You may have been taken by a scammer and Paul does not even know it.

Had an IC-7000 that I bought new a few months back, and it just wasn't "for me". I knew I wasn't going to get what I invested back out of it, but I figured I'd go for an honest price. It was nice getting an honest price from an honest guy. I don't do much swapping of equipment, and I've always been...

Well I want to know if he sent him an aftermarket antenna with the deal, then I see no reason to buy a new one or offer the refund... I remember selling a old Heathkit Keyer.

W2LEW offered him a refund if he returns the radio and accessories. So he is standing behind the deal! if you are not happy with the radio, return it. Why should Lew buy an antenna at this point?

Re: The art of scrounging...

For most hams, anything they buy for the hobby is relatively expensive, so hams with little or no "hobby money" are hard pressed to set up and keep a station up and running. Compare this hobby to some others. One does not need to pay hundreds of dollars to buy fishing equipment, unless, of course, ...
