Thomas Nothhelfer? Oh, I think not! I believe "Curtis J Bisesi" would be more accurate......plenty of commentary about him on this forum Here's the bait: (Hi Johnson, I have for sale my Yaesu FT-690R II in all original, like new condition. Original box, manual (not a copy), mobile mount, 10 watt linear amp, mic, CTCSS tone board. Please look at the photo, this is as close to new as you can get. All functions work, full power output into a dummy load at 10 watts on FM. In 2 years only made 2 contacts with it, no 6 meter activity in my area. What you see is what you get. I am asking a reasonable $165 + shipping paypal for it. 73, Thomas Nothhelfer ke8hga) This Nogoodnik evidently has psychic powers, because somehow he devined how much I want this rig! It is, in fact, my Holy Grail of all radios....... And no mention of his dying Mother, or poor Sister who died in a house fire, or whatever pops into his demented and sleazy little brain. No possible way of warning the real KE8HGA of the hijacking, pity!
