Received this email offering (which I never indicated I was looking for) - and note, two different callsigns:

wired for 220 volts
I would say amp is 9 out of 10 inside and outside
comes with manual
I believe it is in original condition

Rcvd email back from the REAL Manuel, he isn't listing or selling any such item. So do a bit of research before you click "SEND" to one of these bogus emails.

This is the real W4SSB. I have had numerous complaints of this person pretending to be me. If you have any concerns please contact me at my email address listed on QRZ. I don’t use as an email or Paypal address.
