Is it only me that thinks it is completely ridiculous to ship an amplifier with the tube(s) still in the socket(s)?

KM4OP

KM4OP has been blocked from using the QTH.com Classifieds in the future. This radio is so far away from "near-mint" no matter how you define "near-mint". The buyer had every right to request a refund, and when he was refused, well, I do not want sellers like this on my site. Blocked. 73 - Scott KA9FOX

Murray Neece K5MDM - SK

This is very sad news, indeed. Murray was a straight shooter. This ruffled some feathers -- he called 'em like he saw 'em, and was rarely "politically correct". But, deep down, he had a heart of gold, and always a man of his word. I have seen a lot of shady deals over the 13 years that I've been pro...

Why do business with non-hams?

Why do people continue to do business with non-hams, which are more difficult to verify addresses and identity, and more difficult to find feedback on?

Does anyone read our Safe Trading Tips?
