Hello everyone,
Name here is John and a person I met has been trying to sell their SK grandfathers rigs that include a Johnson Viking II and a National HRO. Is it against eham policy to post rigs that do not belong directly to me? They are looking to get around $300 for them both and they need some work as they have been in an attic for a few years. Since they don't have access to post on these boards, I figured I would try and help them out. Before they posted it on eBay, wanted to give this community the first crack at them.
Thanks for your help. They appreciate it!
John

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the boards but was curious to see if there were any policies against 3rd party posting since I am not the owner. Which was the intent of the post.
Thanks

We do allow ads for estate sales if you are involved in managing it.

I think you worry too much. As long as your intent is not to decieve or defraud, what's the problem?

HA! Thanks for the note. This made my day, and puts it into perspective Smiley Thanks for the input and stay tuned for the two rigs!

I applaud W3JAR for asking first.  I moderate two boards and selling things that you don't own is forbidden on both.

That's is the problem.  Just how is one able to tell the intentions of a guy on the other end of a keyboard or phone call?

It's a red flag on the Internet when third parties are involved. Too many types of scams start with that.

I guess I stand (partially) corrected. From my personal perspective, I would never sell something that I wouldn't stand behind myself, but I admit that is not always the case.As an example, if my friend "Bob" died and his family asked me to help liquidate his equipment I would bring it into my shack for evaluation , at which point I would consider it "mine" and I would have no problem selling it as such.

Johnson Viking II and a National HRO

You mean the first radio in the HRO series. It came out in 1935.  It required plug-in coils, some of which are quite rare. Consider a boat anchor site posting they are in really great shape.

Let me clean up my previous post:

Late 1930s HROs may have been the best ham receivers of their era. But certainly not the best looking. Many were sold to commercial and governmental users around the world. A slightly later model, the HRO-5, was the first good receiver I used extensively. That was in the late 50s, and its performance was very impressive even then.
