Re: SCAMMED BY EUGENE PINCUS (N9NOS)

...how can a ham operator holding a technician class license sell ham radios and other equipment as good working condition if he cannot legally test it himself, You don't need to get on the air to test any piece of equipment. You don't need to be general class or higher to test any piece of equipme...

Petty stuff??... OH, the signature! It's a play on words. Life philosophy. Don't sweat the small stuff and all that. Not related to my comments....directly.

Re: Reading People's Feedback Thoroughly !

Good advise Todd. Another thing to be considered. I think, if a buyer is not satisfied with his purchase, he should exaust all avenues of reconciliation with the seller BEFORE bringing his gripes to the board. Reading through many threads it is appearent an email or call to the seller would have bro...

Re: SCAMMED BY N9NOS

Did a search on N9NOS here and concluded your story is a bit hard to believe. Many of the replies on the 3 pages of were from guys I know well. You are the only one who seems to have a problem.

K8SU- Henry 2K Classic- Great Deal-

I stopped by Kevin's K8SU this past Saturday and picked up a real nice Henry 2K classic. Kevin is very responsive when emailed and we enjoyed a very nice chat, albeit a bit too short, during the visit. He helped load it into the truck and we talked a bit more. When I got it home I wired it up and pu...

Re: K6CMC again

Anyone scammed by sir Charles can also file a complaint with the FCC. Since he is using his license as a path to defraud hams this constitutes behavior unbecoming of an FCC licensed individual.

Re: Chales K6CMC

Same here. He claimed to have a set of 8874s. Same shipping/tracking scenario. Seems he's taking the money, buying UPS label but not using them and keeping the rest. Let's see; $310 taken from Bud, $12.95 to UPS ..... that leaves $297 for Charles.

W4LTD Rich - a real good guy

Rich and I had a deal fall through. By the time he had to call it off he had already mailed the check. Unfortunatly, I was out of town when it arrived and my wife, figuring it was from the eventual buyer, deposited it before I came home. Well, that posed a dilema for both of us. Without going into d...

Timely Responses desired!

Just a thought.
In trying to sell the Icom 718 I have had a number of responders who have left me hanging after the initial email.

Suggestion: If you respond to an ad and decide later not to purchase please have the courtesy to let the seller know in a decent amount of time!
