Just wanted to remind the younger hams that even though there are a lot of ways to get ripped off online with ham gear, face to face with unknown persons can still be risky too. I was recently the purchaser of a modern radio at a famous hamfest and got burned out of 250$. I listened to the seller and his story about the fine working radio. Nothing suspicious. If I had some way to power it up and try it I might or might not have spotted the issues even though the radio was unfamiliar to me. No outward signs of damage or trouble. Eventually got around to firing it up at home and discovered alot of strange things happening in this radio. Well off to the factory repair center. The cost of fixing exceeded the value of the radio. Beyond economical repair is the term. So I let them keep the radio to avoid the additional cost loss of the estimate as the radio had practically zero value. I have been rarely burned at hamfests but has happened before on different items so buyer beware anywhere, even if the deal does not seem shady shifty or send up a big red flag. That's all.
