Maybe we could all pitch in and help this poor guy get his radio repaired one way or another ? We could show him what Hams from the USA are REALLY about.

I could be wrong ( and if I am please let me know ! ) but I thought you did not need to notify the FCC if you moved ?

I moved a few years ago so my callbook address is not current, Do I need to inform the FCC ?

I had the exact same thing happen a few years ago. I purchased a radio from a guy and gave him my address both over the phone and included with the MO I sent him. He then sent the radio to my old call book address from 20 years ago! Luckily I drove over to my old house and found it sitting on their ...

I agree with you about the display problem ...electronics . But I asked a question, If you made a deal with a online dealer who advertised a radio as being "like new" and you received a filthy scratched up radio instead would you be upset ?
That's all I was asking.

Gee Martyn, I was just asking ke5oah a simple hypothetical question. I know if I purchased a radio that was advertised as "like new" and received a filthy beat up looking radio I would be quite upset too.

Or is "mint" in the eye of the beholder ?

ke5oah: Let me ask you a "hypothetical question" . If YOU saw an ad on the internet for a "like new" radio ( let's just say an Icom 7000 for example ) and paid good money for it would you be disappointed when it arrived and instead of being "like new" it was all filthy and scratched up with some par...

You did well to be suspicious.

It seems I get 2-3 of these a week sometimes. The scam changes a bit from time to time but is always basically the same.

NEVER send payment via Western Union. If you do your money will be gone forever with NO HOPE of getting it back. .
