I had some good info to post in this thread, but I have to run over to eBay and make sure that I won a PHOTOCOPY of the Yaesu FT-60R four-page advertisement brochure that a respected eBay merchant is selling for only $8.00 - instead of downloading the exact same brochure from Yaesu's site, I can snag one off of eBay!
I am serious. I refuse to give the auction number here ...
I have to admit, I have - in the past - gotten caught up in eBay madness. But when I see items selling for MUCH more on eBay than they are selling for down the road at Ham Radio Outlet, I just wonder how some sellers live with themselves.
IT takes a BUYER and a seller to complete the transaction.
If I have a WhizBang Model 123C that I know is worth $100 and the bidders drive the price to $175, it is not my fault and, I can reap the rewards of their faulty judgement, without a care in the world.
