I sure wish I had seen this before he "sold" me a radio. I paid him with Paypal and I never received the radio. Now he wont reply to my emails. I got the same story about not being able to use the phone due to a hearing problem. I've never been ripped off by a fellow ham before. Live and learn.

He says he is hard of hearing, wants you to pay to his daughters paypal account, can not talk on phone because of bad hearing and so will supply no number for daughter or anyone else and of course just LOOK AT ALL THE POSTS about the guy..I figure he is using a real hams call and does not even have a call ..He nearly got me looks like now that I see these posts and I see also he just got another ham who posted today and he is a friend of mine so I know he is not making it up that he got ripped by this guy..So buy and you lose is all I can figure..
