    I'm thinking about purchasing a second (backup) radio from HRO that's listed in their used section. Is what you bought as they described and was their packing sufficient to prevent damage?

    Thanks for the input!

    Yes that is where Oscar came from and it was as advertised.

    I'd trust them, but never actually bought any used gear from HRO.

    I did buy used gear from AES (which HRO pretty much took over) and it was perfect, even came with a warranty but never had any problems so never exercised the warranty.

    It's okay. I can take it. My nephew is picking up an interest in HF. It might just become his, if he plays his cards right. He's studying for his General right now.

    I say what I did because Oscar was modified and there was full disclosure...
    I would add this HRO had paperwork to show what had been to my SB-220...
    When I received it and powered it up it preformed as expected.

    It was a used FT-757 years ago. Accurately described to me by the ham on the phone. I got a lot of good work out of it until it was sent to "reserve".

    I wouldn't hesitate to deal with HRO.

    I bought a used FT-817 for $399 from them, it worked great.
