As a follow up to my previous entry, I neglected to mention that I purchased the 775 from Lentini in CT. I contacted HRO and Texas Towers. Neither of them, of course, was interested in a trade-in on my 756. I then called AES which offered me $900 at one store and $700 at another store for the 756. Its price for the 775 was $3499. When I called Lentini, I was given a price of $3399 and $1250 for the 756. I closed the deal within a matter of minutes.
Although I enjoy dealing with Rick at HRO in DE, I am never sure if I am receiving their best price. It is more like buying a car in that they may advertise an item for $1000. However, if you tell them you can get the same item for $900 at another retailer, they will usually match the price.
BY THE WAY, SINCE MY LAST ENTRY, I FOUND A NEW 775 SITE, www.vartel.com
. THIS SITE ALSO HAS FORUMS FOR THE 706, 746 AND 756 AS WELL AS FOR THE FT 100,1000 AND 920.
