N5NGC - Great Transaction

Had a recent transaction with Jude and went extremely smooth, as all transactions should. Jude even sent the funds and then had to go out of town, holding up shipment for over a week. Talk about trust and confidence. Thanks Jude and have fun! :D

Re: W5YMB - Anyone Deal with Ron Recently?

At this point, I suspect some serious health issue has come up with Ron. No one has heard from him, no responses to emails. I don't feel comfortable calling (not that intimate with him or his family) and bugging him if it is a serious medical situation. Hopefully, all will turn out okay for Ron (and...

Re: W5YMB - Anyone Deal with Ron Recently?

Exactly, why I am inquiring....hopefully, someone will go check on his status and post some info...I too suspect something health related happened to him...not going to bug him with 100 emails (no point) or call....if he is ill, etc. that isn't helping him....hopefully he is on the mend and will res...

Re: Why is it....

I think it is called courtesy...if you entertain buying something, find out about the item for sale and make a decision....no time limit...no one is chomping at the bit, but to tell someone you want to make a deal, etc. and then disappear, why bother in the first place if you haven't checked it thru...

Re: W5YMB - Anyone Deal with Ron Recently?

I had emailed him and I know he is slow in responding. He mentioned he was having health issues, don't we all. I had a heart attack a month ago and reeling from all that (procedures, meds, you name it). Didn't see that coming. Just hope he is okay. I had purchased something from him but to date, hav...

Question on FT-920 and IC-7200

I have an excellent FT_920 that has the INRAD CW Filter in it, AM Board, FM unit, works all modes and bands 160-6, a spare DSP Unit should mine ever fail and all the boxes, manual, hand mic. Would it be a fair trade on a mint IC-7200 (which doesn't do FM, No Antenna Tuner, No RF Power Control, no TX...

Easily said.

Re: N6EQS, Shyster

FYI
I googled his name/town and he comes up as SK in 2007. His Bio on QRZ was updated just prior to the postings on QTH. Likely, a scammer is assuming his identity. I would recommend contacting the local law enforcement to check into it also.

Need Back Light Info for FT-211RH

I am trying to find out what back light bulb (if there is one) is used in the FT-211RH VHF Mobile radio.
I don't see it called out in the service manual (could have missed it) and any help would be appreciated.
