    This guy posing as NE3K has ripped me off for $215.00, after posting a question I got a surprise Email offering me the Yaesu FT-1DR with lots of goodies, even had pictures for the $215.00, he said he would accept PayPal so I paid him and now he has vanished, I have filed a claim with PayPal so I am covered but be aware of this guy as he is a thief.

    Did you look up NE3K on QRZ? He already has a disclaimer regarding this. Do your due diligence before making a purchase.
