Re: HMMM...

Don't know, but wouldn't it be wise to indicate said "arrangement" in ads, I.E.: "Full disclosure"?!? Regardless, it 's a "shame' when it appears hams are attempting to "take advantage" of other hams... OK, I'm out, can't spend anymore time on this, there are no "correct answers" to an/my opinion .....

If it is in your price range and it is what you want you buy it. Just like Walmat but using the Internet instead. If ...
