Hello
I'm selling my ANAN 10E. I bought it brand new It comes with the power
cable only. All manuals are downloadable directly from the Internet.
The condition is *MINT* like NEW. No scrach, NO dent, nothing ! I
never transmit with it. I bought it for RX only as an excellent
receiver. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to play with it, so I
have decided to sell it. Having health issues.
