1 the radio is in exc,no scratches.has been mobile for a short time.i made a few contacts with it on our local repeater and found i did not like the repeater.
used it to talk on my way down to w1aw and back.on the way back the motor in my 86 firebird went so i took it out and it has been here since.not used.
2.i have a new in box yaeseu ft2800m,never been in box w/manual.i used this one one time on that same repeater and still not liked the repeater,so that too has been sitting here.
I'd like to sell these or trade them for a laptop or a 2 mtr ssb rig,not sure yet.but i need the help to find out the value.i do know that hro is seeling the ft2800m for $179.00 not to bad.
any help or advise will be appreciated,thank you

depends on the market but around here the HTX-242 will fetch anywhere from $65-80.

the 2800 is worth anywhere from $100-135.

you'd probably get a little more on Ebay, but then there is the cost of listing fees, final value fees, shipping and Paypal to consider.
Amateur radio gets right through.
