Those who think that CB'er are in the same league as us HAMs are missing the point. We as HAMs have a much richer vocabulary than those truck driving CB'er. We have : Hi Hi, Fine Business or FB, destinated, 73's or 73rd, OM and.... ah yes...QSL instead of 10-4 to name a few. So as you can see...wezz...

The problem with this....

While it is true that PayPal can shut you down for charging extra to the buyer when using their service. PayPal in my opinion does have the right since they stated in the rule up front. That said..... I personally preffered Postal MO and willing to wait a few days for the money. If the buyer wants c...

Men and boys

What is the real reason why anyone of us would go to sites such as QTH? To buy and sell second hand stuff. Anyone disagree with that? So then what is the difference between buying and selling to and from a dealer vs. non-dealer? Who cares what the guy did with his profit? Dealers have a reputation t...

To deal or not to deal

Since I never got bit by the HF bug, I eliminate having to read 87% of the ads on any of the ham sites. And you missed about 87% worth of our hobby by not getting on HF. I generally don't do business with anyone from California, Texas, Florida, and a couple of States north of Florida. Seems most of...

Micheal, You got my vote buddy.... for QTH's hall monitor. I too do not think that it is a good thing to use QTH to point to one's auction elswhere. It is simply bad practice IMHO and I never follow the link. Then again I never buy anything on EBay, I only sell my junk there. BTW....your "channel co...

Where's the beef?

As for ridiculously high prices being the sole province of eBay, they've now invaded the fests. At one '06 fest, a vendor was asking $125.00 for a blue glass Arcturus 127. That's more than a the same NIB 127 would NORMALLY sell for on eBay! What's "Arcturus 127"? Sounds like some kind of desease :l...

And then there are guys out there who are selling the empty boxes. Some even listed here on QTH. Now what's up with that? :roll: Yeah.....

SCAM reply

Yes it is a scam reply generated by a "bot" to a) harvest your email address for future spams and b) an attempt to scam you out of your "item" and money through one of those "I'm buying this for my client " scam.

Funny how they all have the same bad English replies that stood out like a sore thumb.
