    Hi all -

    I have this R-5000 and it is surplus to my needs these days. I'm thinking about selling it.

    It's sitting in my shack and not getting used so someone out there might enjoy having it.

    Everything works and it has the VHF module. Cosmetically, a 6 because of some wear on the top surface.

    It probably needs re-capped and aligned and I'm not sure I want to put the work into it.

    Anyone got an idea what it might be worth?

    Thanks, AC0BE

    Another vote for $100 given your description

    But if you're actually listing it for sale, this is not the place to do that.

    Condition has a lot to do with it.
    I would look up the R5000 on eBay and see the completed auctions for an idea of what it might sell for there. Try to find one that sold in similar condition to yours.
    It's not an exact science but you can get some reasonable idea of the value and how popular they might be used.
