    A ham buddy of mine snagged the RCA.
    It will be picked up on the way home from the Belvedere hamfest.

    Is the forklift included for $1?

    Good Golly! What a nail-biter!

    I guess a starting price of $1.00 gets a lot of attention.

    Speaking of getting attention, the local high school radio club asked for an audio board and one of these got donated when we converted to AM stereo in 1986. I followed up by asking if they were using it or if they needed any help. They casually mentioned that some students tossed it in a dumpster.

    Now this listing haunts me...

    Seems like a lot for a MW-1. But there's a bit of business keeping the ones still in service running and I'll bet the buyer was one of those businesses.

    Cheaper than a used BE, just larger (and a lot easier to work on).

    Isn't moving one to a different channel a real sore PITA?

    Yep.

    Friends help get the price jacked up. (Or the same person with a different log on name.) o_O

    Then you have the hidden reserve.

    I only do "Buy it now" because of that BS.

    Okay. I wasn't asking you, but since you seem to know, tell us how it's done. Thanks in advance.
