I got one from this same clown today. I was looking for a Kenwood tuner, and he had a good one he was selling. I deleted it before I looked in here. They are out in force. DON'T BITE!! Thanks. 73 Mark W9MKM

Their command of the English language, or lack of it, should be a dead giveaway.

Hi Rob
I was caught by a scammer myself! What they do is if you make a payment thinking it is for me,they divert the payment to themselves.They do not actually have any gear to sell.
Happy 2010 to you and yours from
Peter MW0ZZD
