    Maybe I overlooked this rule somewhere, but I figured I'd ask before I post.
    Is it okay to post a Want to Trade ad for an item that's not ham radio related?
    Specifically, I want to trade my telescope for an HF rig.

    Thanks es 73,

    here is my best thought.

    i would put the telescope on "general merchandise" and stress the trade.

    a good hf rig is more then the $250 limit on a want to buy, and a telescope doesnt fit on ham gear as a "sale", so ....................

    Thanks for the reply! Makes sense to me. I just figured there's more interest in the "Ham Gear for Sale" section than the others but then again a telescope isn't a radio. There's somewhat of a relation though... Amateur Astronomy is just like Amateur Radio - very addicting and expensive!

    you can always combine the 2 interests and spend 3 or 4 times the money :)

    That's why I need to get rid of it!
