Bad Seller KI0NN

Post by isKDOUSA »
I Replied to a for sale on here last week . The seller is : KI0NN DAVID L DOONAN GREAT BEND KS I purchased a Used MFJ-259 . it arrived double boxed wrapped in small store plastic bags. No
bubble wrap nothing to protect it. The power supply is Not a Matching power supply for or from MFJ.
He told me it was his but the item has what looks like Yard Sale or Flea Market Stickers on it . The user manual has property of lables on it . As per reading the user manual i did check to see if the unit had been shipped with or without a 9V battery in it. Only to find Cut and Taped wires inside the MFJ 259 , NO Battery installed. Cut Wires No Soder just Electric Tape. i need not tell all the readers more
i believe you can decide if you ever want to purchase anything that KI0NN Sells on QTH or Other sites
