listing 781920 from on4mne callsign not valid

Post by kb3cur » Sun Nov 15, 2009 7:44 pm

attention all hams, someone using the callsign on4mne is trying to get some unsuspecting ham to sell the book, How to troubleshoot and repair amateur radio equipment by j. j. carr. this person is trying to buy this book for 15 dollars. The true value of this book is at least $1000 dollars. If anyone has this book i would advise them to hold on to it. this person is trying to steal it. by the way this callsign is not listed in any database.
beware ron kb3cur!!!

historical military radios
Pascal PA3FKM en Joseph ON4MNE hebben het tijdens deze presentatie over: Pascal PA3FKM and Joseph ON4MNE have during this presentation:
"Het verzamelen ... een toestel uit de tweede wereldoorlog. "The collection ... a device from the second world war.

Tijdens de presentatie komen de volgende aspecten ... During the presentation the following aspects ...
If the call does not exist, why is it listed as belonging to Joseph, a presenter at a conference regarding WWII radios?

Also, what is wrong with advertising for a book and indicating a buying price. This is not "stealing" is is just asking. No one is holding a gun to the head of a possible seller of such a book. Where do you see "stealing" in his asking?

Finally, what business is it of yours?

I suggest you delete your post and get a life. JJ Carr is dead and I don't think he cares how much his old book sells for!

And the value of your life drops dramatically when the buyer finds out you charged him three times what it was worth and that you got it for free.

it is stealing if you know the value of the book is much more that you are offering. besides i thought that what this forum is for, to warn other hams about potential fraud. I personally would want someone to give me aheads up . then to each his own. iI made a mistake about the callsign and for that i apoligize, but not for anything else.

Your going to tell me then that if i found a $50.00 bill laying on the Ground that it is worth now less than $50.00 since i got it free or turned it into $150.00...As for my life being in trouble i never worry about whiners.
