I have been into Amateur radio for 45 years, I do know what i am doing in most cases. The radio has know issues and that is Rotary Encoder, Power Switch.
He stated when it was sold it was in good condition. The radio has a extended hf mod done, not unusual but all the adds i see say that the radio has extended rec mod .
If this was stated when he was selling the radio , it would have never been bought. I am repairing the radio at my own expense . He seem
sincere and he did offer to share in the cost of repair but when i sent him an email back he never answered, I did not know he was out of town.
I have copy's of all his emails.
But i did not leave this feed back one day after, i waited a week and never herd from him. I have 100% feedback anywhere you want to look on the internet.
I will repair this radio as i said at my expense and when i see that the radio is all fixed , i may keep it or sell it
but the buyer will know the story on the radio. It will be check out fully before its sold. I still stick to my statement, If he check it out before he sold it
then he most likely would have never sold it. That was his fault. I am sure any of you out there would make sure or tell anyone of a problem
with a piece of equipment before you sold it or at least say you never ran it on all functions and bands. But what i cant understand is if you would go into
the menus and at that point you would know something was wrong or if you added something to memory. The radio is not easily run with out using the Rotary encoder.
He said it might have happen in shipment, Please. Read some feedback on the radio witch is my fault i never did.
This is most likely this first time i have ending up with a radio i bought in bad electronic condition, cosmically the radio is fine.
So maybe it's both our faults , his for not testing the radio out and stating it's problems and me for jumping the gun on bad feed back.
All i know is i am out $975 plus repairs because of his lack of effort to check things out before he sold it.
Not a good practice if you sell equipment
