My favorite is when they say they are selling the radio because it is too hard to program.  Even if that is the truth, why would you put that in the ad?  It is just going to turn off potential buyers who might think it will be too hard for them as well.

Actually , 90% of the radios I buy are known to be not working ,that is exactly why I am buying .  It may help to know why it is not working but no big deal .
  The usual story is quite believable . "Bought it to restore it , never got around to it " . I appreciate that .Restored" is one of the most abused terms on the planet , especially among radio people .  I rarely buy "restored" and NEVER buy repainted  radios or radios with hamholes . "Hamholes" are the holes that some hams seem to feel the need to create , by any means available , usually the worst . 

     When you buy radios known as non working , there is seldom any room for disappointment .
