    A scammer is out there posing as me. I've posted some emails below that the scammer has sent (thanks to some alert hams).

    Scammer has been using the email: The Paypal account used by the scammer is: The ad text and pictures in the emails were copied and altered from a legitimate QRZ listing by Scott N7LRA:

    My correct email is on my QRZ page, and I only list equipment for sale on public sites like QRZ, QTH, etc. I do not solicit sales by email. . . and no, I'm not selling a YAESU G-5500 Azimuth / Elevation Rotator.

    Subject: Yaesu G-5500 Rotor

    YAESU G-5500 Azimuth / Elevation Rotator. Installed for 6 months, then stored. Worked perfectly when removed from service. Controller is in excellent condition; azimuth and elevation rotators are in good working order, but cosmetically I rate these a 8-9 of 10 due to 6 months outdoor exposure. Includes one (1) mast clamp assembly and hardware.

    ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS PACKAGE: AMSAT LVB azimuth / elevation controller with digital readout. This unit was assembled by AMSAT, not kit-built. Unit plugs directly into back of Yaesu G-5500 controller, requires no separate power source, and has USB interface for use with PC satellite tracking programs.

    Selling as package only – will not separate rotator and LVB Tracker. $500 including UPS ground shipping. (Selling due to unforeseen renovation expenses.)thanks and 73
