You will have to go back a long way to find magazines with prices printed in the advertisements, for any product you can name, and when there are prices with specifications for cars usually its for the top of the range model at the maximum selling price. Competition being very fierce you haggle for the best price in the showroom.

... How can they expect to sell something if they don't include the price?

They certainly will never sell anything to me. If there's no price listed, I move on.

You know you can look up almost any price from almost any vendor on the Internet.

I understand that their actual sales prices may vary, but it would be nice if they would at least list the MSRP with a note to "Call for current pricing" so that you could know the order of magnitude while flipping pages.

Precisely! How could doing that not significantly increase their sales?

It is almost universally agreed throughout the business world that not stating prices in a print ad almost always hurts sales.

My guess is that most hams don't decide on gear nor purchase major gear based on printed catalogs.   I'm actually surprised the stores send them out anymore as most of them likely end up as bathroom reading at best.    Most who price shop go on the "world wide web."
