Re: When you REALLY don't want to sell it.

oh well why not.... You folks forgot.... Call it a "unit", claim works 100% but no mike, keyer, manual, power cord. Display absolutely no knowledge of the "unit", especially when it works 100%. Works great, 100%, but will not be DOA. Worked when last turned on. Tell me you're on to scammers, serious...

Well, sorry to throw water on the fire here, but I purchased Curt's AL-80B, the deal went without a hitch, and the amp arrived in good shape, well packed, in a timely manner, and was exactly as advertised. I too ask a lot of questions. But, I went back and looked at the AL-80B ad after reading this ...

Same experience when inquiring about a used AT2K tuner he had advertised. Did not actually have one, was expecting one soon, but had a new one. Right. I did not realize he was a dealer until that time.

really creative scams and personal info/ID theft

Thanks for the post. Even if all this "Andrew" fellow gets is your personal info, he's got a lot. Then you'll likely get to put fraud alerts on your credit file, get new credit/debit cards issued, deal with someone's fraud investigators, etc., fun stuff like that.

Great Seller-Chuck Costa K6CVC!!

Chuck is a great seller. I bought an auto tuner from him at a very fair price, it works great, and Chuck even spent extra $$$s to send it 2 day FedEx fm CA to FL, so that I'd have it before I leave on a lengthy trip today! I even offered him extra $$$s for the expedited shipping, to which he decline...

Age does matter

The problem with Ameritron amps is that they do have components that age out, i.e. filter caps, other older style components, i.e. relays, input pads, etc., that just don't perform as well as the later build amps. So the age does matter. If you doubt this assertion, you have not bought one in "excel...
