I remember years ago , 70 & 80's, when ham swap meets were unneeded equipment and a good place for a new ham to get set up. No price gouging and very reasonable and cheap prices to help or swap with others. A lot of my boat anchors here were good barges also. To me I don't care what memories or overpraised the old boat anchor is, it is only worth 1/2 the new price regardless because it is "used" in my book. Yet in this world of today I see many listed for more than they actually cost new? The guy gets tired of his old radio and you get to buy him a new one, Thank you so much? --No warranty, 'As Is", take your chances.-. Good luck? Yes there are good working used equipment that may or may not give years of good service if the price is right? but why pay more that you can get the latest and greatest for sometimes less money? If I had the fun and got the good from a radio and not using it anymore, let someone else enjoy it ? I have just given away some of my old radios or sold at a very reasonable and cheap or to help a new ham get started ..
