    Hello all.
    Last week I was offered three (3) Boomer antennas by a amateur radio operator who claimed to be G0KHO residing in the UK. Claimed to be active on EME. After several emails and a little internet checking I realized that this is probably a stolen identity. The email address is not the same as listed on QRZ. The profile and interests for G0KHO are also different than what is listed on QRZ. The incorrect email address given is G0KHO @YAHOO.COM The person who wrote to me did use the correct name for G0KHO. I do not think the real G0KHO has any knowledge that his call sign has been used to solicit offers for amateur radio equipment. All of my emails to the person listed on QRZ as G0KHO have gone unanswered. If anyone knows the real G0KHO, please make him aware of what is going on. The first solicitation that I received started last week on April 1, 2012.
    Please beware. KA2VAW
