    I posted on a thread that had a FT-891 w/ ATAS-120a for sale, and got an email from someone claiming to be Peter G Adely Sr (W2HP) from email address ppkadely19@gmail.com. He apparently had an amazing deal on the same combo! I don't think this is really Peter, since in his last email he called me Peter, and also sent me this wonderful work of art. I want to call your attention to all the stars! It's so pretty!

    Quick reverse image search shows it's from a legitimate listing K7ZME had up before. Always ask for pictures with hand written callsigns folks!

    No email address for W2HP. Looks like it’s an unmanaged account but he has posted in the past. Two email addresses in his posts.

    W2HP is not an unmanaged account. It has, however, been closed.
