    I reported this ad but the moderator said it meets the rules. There is no callsign next to the IC-7000. Am I missing something?

    The price is $875 "free shipping."

    From the rules:

    If the item being offered is valued at more than $250.00 then the sellers callsign must appear in at least one photo, set and taken alongside the item offered for sale. Handwritten callsigns are preferred. Callsigns which are digitally superimposed (photoshopped) onto the picture are not allowed.

    The ad has 4 pictures, IC-7000, DC PS cable, manual and back of radio showing SN. Only the pictures with the cable and manual have the callsign. The item that's forsale is the IC-7000 not the cable or manual. Shouldn't that be the photo required to have the callsign?

    Please advise.

    That sounds like a very bad interpretation of the rule.

    Last week I reported what I feel was a detailed software piracy workaround for a specific radio (but I have no idea if those instructions actually work). Supposedly you download the software for free, and then the workaround makes it work without using the specific anti piracy cable.

    Crickets, and the post was not removed. Thanks for reminding me that I want to ask the vendor what they think about that.

    You guys are wrapped too tight. Simple answer: if in doubt, refrain from buying.

    Is it really that hard to figure out?

    Maybe it's $875 for the power cable and manual. The picture of the rig is just a visual reference for what the power cable and manual are for. :D

    One doesn't have to buy something to question/report an ad.

    That pretty much says it all. The moderator has the final say.
