My Conclusion

Let me first state that I have never had any business dealings with Martyn or his wife. It has become obvious from these posts that Martyn and his wife have made some people very angry. He also has 26 negatives on Ebay during the past 12 months. Martyn, with 18,000 sales, it sure seems that the smar...

still does not make sense

Scott, My response went to Charles. How did Martyn intercept and reply to it, and then go on to ask me about a rig I had for sale?

Straighten Out My Confusion

I answered an ad by Charles V White KI4VDX offering a Flex 5000a. I get a response indicating that it was sold, however the response was from Martyn. Martyn is in Georgetown Ky and Charles is in Knoxville Tn 185 miles apart. Someone want to set me straight?

John, n6dxn and I agreed on a price for his rig. I immediately sent him a pmo. He claimed her never received the pmo. I offered to "express mail" him a replacement.

goes with the territory

Karl, Those of us who are regular sellers and hoss traders understand that some people will ask questions and then become cosmic debris (Frank Zappa). The more information you place in your ad and the better your reputation as a seller, the less aggravation you have. I just purchased a 9000d from k7...

courtesy?

Karl, Based on your comments, I am guessing you call the car salesman back after you take an hour of his time and tell him you are buying from his competitor? You call the furniture salesman back after you ask him 100 questions, thanking him for his time, however you are not buying from him? happy h...

Re: HONESTY OF RATING RADIO EQUIPMENT

It's understandable to make a mistake rating a 7 an 8, or a 6 a 7, however the pile of junk listed below is hamfest flea market garbage deserving no more than a 4. No one in their "honest mind" could rate it at an 8! I'll bet the seller takes the rig back and keeps the money!!! Happy Hoss Trading. P...
