    Yesterday morning I discovered my personal vehicle had been stolen outside my apartment here in Louisville, KY. Among the items inside, though hidden, was my complete satellite operation station. Please keep an eye out if you see any or all of these items up for sale in the near future:

    Yaesu FT-818ND (serial #: 8G910854)
    Icom IC-W32A (underside of battery has my callsign, I believe the side of the radio does as well but can’t remember)
    Bose QuietComfort 15 noise cancelling headphones
    Olympus LS-10 Linear Voice Recorder
    Arrow II Satellite Antenna (split boom)

    Also if you haven’t done it yet, let this be a good reminder to mark your equipment appropriately so it can be identified in case of loss or theft.

    Very sorry to hear that Mike. Good luck with the recovery or at least an honest insurance reimbursement.

    Sad faces all around. Some $#17#34& stole radios out of my truck. Bozo probably thought they were CB radios, herp derp. Couldn't get $5 at any flea market. All were marked, never seen or heard anything..

    Best wishes for you to get reunited, some nice equipment there.

    Maybe a neighbor has a camera recording the street activity?

    One of my neighbors has a camera, what can I do to find a guy with jeans and a hoodie?

    Insurance didn't help. Maybe yours will.

    I once left a banjo on the back seat and only was away from the car for like 5 minutes.

    When I got back, the window was broken.

    There were three more banjoes in the car!
