Paypal GIFT is a bad idea - Please STOP asking!

Paypal GIFT is a bad idea - Please STOP asking buyers to do this - this is how sellers want paid who have something to hide - - they want you to lie to PayPal so you have zero protection against fraud. Why do they want to make sure the buyer is unprotected? Using PayPal properly and honestly is the ...

Selling by money order only - sorry we couldn't make it work

I recently inquired about a money order only item. I messaged the seller, and he replied with a shipping cost. So far, so good. I asked to verify, is your callsign address good on QRZ - his reply was he did not know. Now, at this point, I become suspecious. People selling, if you want a money order ...

To all of those giving props - glad to hear you're lucky! I bought an antenna switch - the picture was tiny, and now I know why - it looked very, very rough up close & in person! I figured what the heck - so I hooked it up - and just as I dreaded - nothing. Shorted..... so, for my savings of 20 some...

Re: shipping from or to Alaska

I gave up on it years ago because of 99% damaged goods shipped over the years. Personally, I like "ALL CAPS", its the way real radiomen were trained to to type, and it's difficult to break the habit.....IT IS NOT CONSIDERED RUDE BY REAL RADIOMEN. All that aside, I agree with AL7F.......and it's his...

Re: Alaska

I`ve put on ads here, and as always I mentioned "shipped to N.A." That meant that I paid shipping anywhere in N.A. I shipped to Alaska, and it didn`t cost that much more. A few bucks more won`t kill me, and it makes for another happy ham. All CONUS means to me is that I am not buying... Ship someth...
