My neighboor who is a ham got a Kenwood TS-140 while on a move, the people had it on top of the trash bin, no mic. or power cord but the radio works perfect.
I have received a yeasu FT-101E for free from some people who had a relative pass away years ago and found another "one of those goofy radios" and wanted it to go to a good home. I actually like it better than my Yaesu 757.
I have also have received many different radios and receivers when I was young from many elmers that I would pester as I rode around on my bike as a kid (kind of like stalking, the antenna farm would give them away, either way I owe my career in radio to those old guys.)

I thought it was a good idea to talk my neighboor into getting his ham ticket until we both tried to operate on the same band but not the same frequency.
