    I posted one photo because the others do not contain call signs. But since you asked...

    Hi Tom,

    Yes, still interested. It needs to be in excellent condition without any significant scratches or damage. Also need photos with your call sign shown on one of the them, hand written or showing your QSL card.

    Show me what you got.

    I am waiting to hear back from K8AQM, as I committed myself to purchasing from him if the deal fell through. I would hate to post such a statement and then not honor it.
    If he does not contact me over the next couple of days or if indicates the tuner was sold on QRZ, then I will contact you again and ask for 2 or 3 photos. I can only do PayPal to protect the Seller and the Buyer.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Serge, AK9S

    I don't see them. I think there's a step that you have to do to upload them to QRZ so that they become visible.

    What should you look for?

    If you blow it up enough, you may be able to see where new content was pasted over what was originally there. The pasted-in text may appear sharper than the surrounding area or have jagged edges. Sometimes you can see remnants of what was originally there (like a different callsign). Or the text won't quite line up with the card it's supposedly printed on. Basically anything that doesn't look quite right. An original un-retouched photo should have consistent grain and focus/sharpness across the entire image.

    That's odd, as I see them. Does anyone else not see the photos in my previous postings?

    I see broken IMG tags.
    How are you posting them, are you linking to a private album? Make sure the link is public.

    Cut 'n paste. Apparently that does not work.

    Using image attachment requires a URL - my hard drive is not a website. So I would need to upload photos to my private album and then link the URL. No thanks. Too lazy.

    Use 'upload a file' beside the reply button.
