    Oh man... is THAT ever true! “Still has the plastic on the display”, “only used a couple times” “only used the Yaesu MP for QRP.” yada yada yada... It’s like when the cop asks the guy: “how many beers did you drink?” And the guy says “only had a couple beers.” Then blows a 2.40 Oh my!

    I often wondered what these guys did to "gently use" their gear. Did they wear gloves and protective masks? Or did they kiss and hug their radios at night when it was bedtime?

    And then the bombshell hits..."As with ALL used electronics, this item is being sold as-is, no returns."

    EXACTLY! And that’s the whole thing in a nutshell! If you’re going to buy used make sure you research the snot out of it, see it work, maybe make a QSO with it or listen to it on a receiver so you can actually hear the audio of it and make sure you know exactly what you’re buying! And make sure you buy it with PayPal using “goods and services“ because if you do “friends and family“ you have no PayPal protection and the person selling you the “radio“ could actually be selling you a “box of rocks“ and there’s nothing you can do about it.
