    A suggestion: If you want to get top dollar or perhaps even a sale, take 30 seconds to clean off your offering. I see literally a ton of transceivers for sale and they are filthy in the photos. Yet the descriptions describe them as “like new” or “9 out of 10”. I would not consider purchasing because it appears the equipment has not been taken care of. All we have to go on as buyers are photos and descriptions. Do yourself a favor.

    Yeah, it's funny, isn't it? On the other hand, we have the "mint" people. If it says "mint" or "minty", I just turn the page. It's nice if you have something that looks like it ought to. If it doesn't, you should mention that. But unless it's still in the original sealed plastic wrapper, it's not "mint".

    Think we talked about this before it is amazing. Was looking for a spare tube for one of the old rigs on eBay the other day and came upon one labeled NOS (new old stock). When I looked at the photo it was clear that a couple of pins were bent. That would be the first new tube observed in close to 60 years with bent pins. Oh well, just shake your head and move on.
