This person was selling a radio shack HT.
I asked for a picture and he said he had no camera.
I asked if he would take 80.00 instead of 85.00+ shipping and he said yes.
The HT was dropped and has a broken piece at the side where the battery goes.
The speaker MIC was only a MIC because one on the pins were clipped off and it was not a RS speaker MIC
All the rig does is transmit and receive a harsh hash and the tone/SQL does not work
The battery pack is bad and he said it was a good pack.
The Mr. Nicad battery charger has the transformer falling out but I did fix that and it does charge.
He refused to refund me saying he was not in warranty business.
In one of his letters he said just snap on the pack and drop it in the charger.
Well you do that with a HTX 202 then it gets fried and that is what he was doing.
On top of a 100% non working rig it was so filthy I was having 2nd thoughts of touching it.
I told him he lied because the rig was not clean
Not in working order.
Did not have a RS speaker MIC
And the battery was bad.
I questioned the drop in charger since I never knew they had one for the HTX 202.
Below is his short note.
>no problem the charger is called mr.nicad that charges most nicad bateries i just stick the hand held in and it charges or i can just stick the battery in thanks again if it does not sale i will lower the price 73 carl w3bmk<I>>>It has the AA battery pack on it Bob with fairly fresh batteries in
it. You will need to program it for the repeaters in your area
though. You'll like that high performance rubber duck thats with it,
its a little longer than most and does a good job !

Enjoy !

Although this appears on Bob's post about the bad deal on the HTX-202, the bad one was not from me - it was from Carl, W3BMK. The one refered to above is the one I sent Bob for free in good working order and he in returns sent me lots of parts and goodies to add to the junkbox for which I am greatful !
