Do you ask for feedback on qth?

When you sell something or buy something on QTH do you ask the buyer or seller for feedback? I was just wondering because over the years there have been guys that get a lot of feedback but don't really seem to sell that much stuff. I sell quite a bit of stuff on qth and seldom receive feedback. I ne...

Re: Shipping your stuff at buyers expense.

I was selling 250' reels of RG8X coax here on QTH. The reels wouldn't fit in any of the Postal flat-rate Boxes. I had a KL7 ask me if I would unwind it and roll it up manually small enough to fit in a Flat-Rate Box. I agreed and shipped it to him. My Thank You was to have him bitch that I used too m...

Re: Update help needed

While I agree with the antenna choices, I don't think the 40 meter beam will be much of a rock crusher at 48'. If I had my druthers i would love to have the multi-bander at 70 - 80' and if the tower won't support a 40 meter beam in addition to the multi-bander and the 40 meter beam, I would try to h...

Re: Hijacked AD6KD FT-897D - Appears to be Scammer

This Benitez Aston Character was the same idiot that was posting phony ads last week under the call of K6HLE. After I accused him of being a fraud, he took off his ad and emailed me that he took it off because he can't stand Violent people. I told him that I can't stand crooks either.

Should be OK.

As long as you didn't send the PayPal payment as "personal" you should be fine. I had one not show up and the PO said they delivered it and they may have delivered it, but they didn't deliver it here. I had to sign an affadavit saying I never got it and they refunded every penny with no problem at a...

Most here are coing to say "run from Western Union" but I have a different opinion if I am the seller. I have had instances when I have sold things to hams in Eastern Europe (including Romania) when the buyer did not have PayPal and really had no other way to pay. As the seller you don't have to shi...

Maybe I would like the TRUTH to be known?

YEP there's the Martyn that we know and love! Maybe it is my concern because I would like the TRUTH to be known, but I am starting to realize that you could probably ever recognize what the TRUTH really is. Al, I am not saying it is RXO's fault, What I am asking is what concern is it of yours?[/quote]

Martyn, I still don't think you are getting it. Mike didn't say he paid too much for what he thought he was getting, (a Mint AC-4). What he is saying is that he paid too much for what he actually DID receive, but here again you try to make it his fault and say that you offered him all of his money b...

ICOM 746 PRO

I have had about 10 or more of them and the last new one I had was about two years ago and it had a 0208XXX serial number. I am not even sure that Icom uses the year in their number. I know Yaesu does and Kenwood uses the Number of the production year but I am not sure about Icom.

HMMM

I just checked UPS rates with No account and the 59" package is$18.00 and the 62" package would be $26.50 so the Length surcharges are pretty close for each company.Close to 50%.
