In this day of fast talk and slick advertising, it's refreshing to find another ham whose word is as good as his signature. I just purchased a Heathkit HW-9 station from Darrell after seeing it advertised on QRZ, and following up with a phone conversation with Darrell. I have been looking for just this rig for more than two years. The station was exactly as described, priced fairly, and arrived well packaged a day early. Darrell kept in contact by email even after the station was shipped to assure my satisfaction. A good deal has often been described as one in which both the buyer and seller are happy. This truly was a good deal!
