a local ham fest is a good bet.. also if remote to anywhere, QRZ.COM sale forum.
also here on QTH... Eham.net.

lastly Craigs list..
be careful of the "" I'll give you a hunnert bucks to take it off your hands::"" people..
Look thru the QRZ sales stuff to try and get a ballpark price on the stuff.

research research research..

A face-to-face sale -- fest, CraigsList, radio club -- is preferable to an online sale. Quality packing and shipping - not UPS grade - costs $$$. And you don't have to worry about collecting your $$$ -- unless you're paranoid about DIY USC.

An outdoor fest is preferable to an indoor fest. Outside, you can sell out of your vehicle. Indoors, you have to schlep the gear inside -- that's a pain unless there's two (or more) of you.

Do radio clubs usually allow non-members to sell their equipment?
