My Pleasure

Radek, It's always a pleasure to help out fellow hams. Enjoy your rig. I checked it out and it looks like the memory battery needs replacement.

That will give me a feel for everything I should avoid. In answer to his "If you follow those tips you won't buy much". Well there we...

fred massoni?

In reference to Fred saying "you deal with ups or fed ex". I don't know Fred nor have I had any deals with him, however this is real simple.
