    KN4GZO posted the following message last week: "'I'm looking for a cheap/entry level used HF radio. I'm only 14 and money is pretty rare" I responded I had an HF rig to give him but delivering it was an issue. He tried twice to get me to ship it but I learned I needed to go to Atlanta that weekend. As he said he lives in Atlanta, I offered to meet him and give him the rig which included power cable and microphone. I was also throwing in an MFJ tuner and hookup cable.

    I tried three times to contact him and no response. I suspect he was not a young ham but someone trying to scam a free radio perhaps using his call or he himself was not 14 as stated. He wanted it shipped and when I refused but offered to meet him in person he disappeared.

    Just be aware and careful that if KN4GZO posts anything it should be suspect.
