    Hi KN4EJJ here,

    I was wondering how in the world I can sell a radio I have.

    Some possibilities:
    An ad here, or local newspaper, or Craig's List.
    Maybe thru a local ham club if you have one.

    Good luck.

    Make sure you say no returns due to parts swappers

    You can sell on or if you'd like. Watch out for scammers!

    There are numerous possibilities:

    Post a Swap Meet ad here on (free)
    Post a classified ad on (free)
    Post a classified at on (free to post, donation requested if it sells)
    List it on Ebay. (free to post, fee if it sells)
    Post an ad on your local Craig's List. (free)
    Purchase a classified ad in a local newspaper. (fee for listing, low likelihood of sale).
    Contact a local radio club in your area -- they may have an on-air swap-and-shop net and or run a local ham radio flea market.
    Make a few contacts on a local repeater and "spread the word" that you have a rig for sale.

    Q: How much is it worth?
    A: You can do an Advanced Search on ebay, showing completed auctions. This will show how much something did (or didn't) sell for. In order to do an Advanced Search, you must first be registered and logged-in.

    It would be unethical to sell a radio you don't have...

    Seriously, the most popular venue is eBay although some chose here on to avoid the fees.

    Some areas have HF regional swap nets every week. Requires no club or computer. Results may vary, depending on what it is and the price. Of course, only participate solo where your privileges allow. ;)
