Alot of junk thats not as described

I recently purchased an amplifier on qth and it was a piece of junk. Not even close to the way it was described in the listing. Before I start naming names and call signs I will give the seller a chance. This is the first time this has happened to me and Im a little pissed off. I bust my ass for the...

Re: Got Scammed

Thats why i ONLY use Paypal... Weeds out the scammers and non hackers... I use to not like Paypal now I will only use Paypal myself. If they wont take Paypal run the other way unless you know the seller. No guarantee with anything but at least you have some protection with Paypal. All this scamming...

What they arent worth

$356.99 for a Ten Tec Omni D. We all know what website this came from. Really, I own Ten Tec gear and I cant see this rig fetching this kind of money. What the hell are people smoking these days to pay that kind of money for a rig that old that isnt even fully functional. Oh well some people are jus...

The problem is not PayPal. PayPal is what it is. PrayPal is crap. Been with Ebay since 1999. Thats another story. Wait till you sell something that is known working and PayPal wont release your funds or jerk the money out of your bank account. Its not if its when it will happen. Been there had it h...

I welcome "Tire Kickers" . In fact Id rather have someone be sure its what they wanted. I prefer a pick-up as some can see and try before one buys. If I ever have equipment for sale ask away!!!!

Most people asking ridiculous prices for equipment are "LEGENDS IN THEIR OWN MINDS". If you think you paid to much dont piss and moan about it . Do your homework.

Well when it comes to used equipment, some people must think they have gold and their price reflects that. Some people get insulted if you make them a reasonable offer. Over the years I seen the used equpment market turn into "show and tell" not "not buy and sell" Once in awhile you will find some e...

Trading a newer rig for an older one? I wouldnt trade even up. Then again the TS830 is a great hybrid rig which you can repair alot easier than one could repair the IC-718 which is surface mount and muti-layer circuit boards possibly. I know the original question was about trading and I wondered off...

Id say a BIG reduction in price. Id like to know where people come up with these crazy prices for a broken radio. Heck even a used working radio, way overpriced at times. I guess it boils down to how much one is willing to spend. Considering the cost of a new radio a repairable radio is a great alte...
