Appraisal on Ft-7800, VX-5, FT-857D, SP-180, AT-180, and gell cells
As you may or not be aware I am 17 years old, soon to be 18. Currently I have been off the air due to the day-to-day activity's of my high school activities and high school. I have been off the air for a while, and with the need to get a job along with college I doubt I will have time then either. Doubly I have little saved for college. I am not here to talk about my sob story, however I would like to know the current value of the three radio devices listed above, so in the coming months I can sell them. I have acquired 3 pieces of equipment through 2 years of hard work, trading, and bartering. They are all in good condition from a scale of 1-10 I would say a 7-8. I will further break down what other equipment I have with it.
Remote cables bracket along with a cheap ($20) radio shack 2" speaker
Diamond NR770HNMOB Antenna
No brand black magmount antenna (~$25)
2m/20cm antenna (not stock antenna)
2m/70cm swr/wattage meter (the part that connects the the coax smells a little smokey but the meter part doesn't, I am a non-smoker)
5 misc gell cell batteries (iii brand)
bought 1 year ago, stored charged but I don't have a trickle charger
Appraisal on any of these pieces would be appreciated,
PS I apologies for background color, I can't seem to get rid of it
~~ Never mind, I fixed it.
I am asking for peoples opinions and therefore don't know whether this belongs here or in the Q&A spot or here.
And of course photos will be included when I actually sell the pieces.

I'm sure you've searched them in the "Gear for sale" forum on QRZ, correct?
Evil-Bay is really the way to go otherwise, sure it's a PITA but stuff sells at "current market value". Often people bit higher than they should to "win" the auction.
Figure out what shipping will cost, BEFORE you list each. List your stuff so they expire @ 9PM EST on a Sunday night. Believe me that is the best time!
Keep 1 radio, some college chics love geeks!
Ft-7800 I just paid $175 for about 6 months ago. FT-857d $650 range depending on condition. If you sell on fleabay remember the fees add up to about 10%
