Scammer using K5BCN callsign

The phone # he used was (305)306-5910 (in Florida). His email used was jcwms907@gmail.com . After I reali...

Re: Caution: WB4IUY Dave (Erwin) Hockaday

Steve, the only emails in my trash/inbox/spam folders from you were when you made the purchase from eHam. After my wife discovered the voice mail from you on the 22th (looked like you had called on the 20th), I called back and left you a message, thanking you for the reminder and that I had been bus...

Re: Scammy message from someone using AA8EQ

Hi Dwayne, Good to hear from the "real" AA8EQ :-) . Usually, these scammers will engage you in a conversation and immediately tell you some story about being elsewhere and want you to send the $$ to them at their other home, vacation location, etc. It's kinda their MO. Someone probably really wanted...

The typical scammy message, seen a zillion times in the past, said only: "I have for sale. Are you still interested?" . DWAYNE W FRYE AA8EQ is in QRZ as an unmanaged address, the types of c...

Someone using W6TY Douglas P Orr...

This guy is making his rounds. I doubt it's actually Douglas, though I can't find an active phone # or email to contact the real W6TY at. I got a "scammy smelling" email from him today. After a quick search on various ham groups, I see he's already emailed other folks about WTB or For Sale items. Go...

The scammer who was calling himself "Harry Wayne" and going by WA0ELW is now going as "Bob" and using the call of W6XI on the forums. He is still coming from a verizon IP in Wayne, Pennsylvania of 71.123.63.154 . This is the same IP he's used under other callsigns/names. This person is still using t...

Franklin COnverter Company ???

Anyone know what this is, or have a link to info on it? I've been searching, but having no luck. It looks like it is some sort of ham radio audio interface build into an old serial port A/B switch housing. I think it was a kit, because they had custom stickers to overlay on the front panel that say ...
