    Sounds like you need to put in a insurance claim with the shipping company.

    Good Luck.

    I know stuff like this happens. I sold a radio years ago on ebay. Clearly stated the radio had low rf output on the VHF band only. HF and UHF were fine. Buyer got it then tried to get me to pay to fix it stating it was misrepresented. Had this happened in this day and age of ebay and paypal I'm 100% convinced I'd of ended up with the radio back and who knows what condition and or parts swapped. Really put me off of dealing with ebay as a seller for anything over 100 bucks.

    I should add I'm not saying the OP post was valid or not I have no idea. Just saying that people who think paypal is the best for accepting payment are in for a rude awakening.

    Sounds like the story may very well be true seeing that VK4PX is unwilling to post his side of the story here.

    We only hear one side of the issue. Please tell us your side. If none of what was written was true then you should tell us the truth. Otherwise I will
    believe that you tried to scam a ham!!

    May just not want to drag it all out here.
    Judging from his work bench it is hard to imagine he doesn't give the greatest care to any radio.
    I wondered about that too.
