Not so bad

I have to disagree. The vast majority of deals go through just fine. If you follow the sage advice here and be smart, you will do well.

Size of the ads to increase slightly

In the past, the size of each ad was limited to 700 characters. Due to some requests, I have increased the size to 1000 characters.

If you have any questions, just yell!

ALL CAPS is not the answer to vision problems

Writing your ad in all Caps is not the answer to vision problems. Instead, in Internet Explorer, all you have to do is go to the VIEW menu, then under TEXT SIZE just make the text size larger. If you have it set to smaller, change it to medium. If you already have it at medium, change it to Larger. ...

If it's any consolation, when I transmit on 40 meters using my Hi-Q-Antennas 3/80 in my 1997 Chevy Tahoe, it pegs my speedometer. Fortunately, this doesn't seem to cause any problems, except not knowing how fast I am driving. Cruise control continues to work though.

What about the insurance?

Michael, if you paid for insurance, then you need to find your receipt and work with him to get the shipper to pay for the damage. Or you need to pay for the repair or refund the money yourself, if you can't find the receipt.

What am I missing???
