    Working someone under dubious conditions is partly an acquired skill. Eh?

    I love it when people quote eBay prices as what other similar radios should sell for too. :rolleyes:

    Ummm,
    Didn't he say this is the "Contest" model.
    Like $ 3500 new i thought,kind of a stripped down model of the big boy 9000.
    A lot of expensive options though.
    Might be better off to sell the options seperately.

    It is worth what YOU are willing to TAKE for it, not what some stinkpot ham is willing to pay.

    Yeah, the 7300 seems to be the bench mark what everyone compares too. There was one time you could the the 7300 and a heil mic for around $900, an incredible bargain. The trend is leaning toward the sub $1k radios. Less are looking at the big high end radios. You get so much for your money these days. I remember when the FT 1000 was the radio you would get if you won the lottery.

    I don't believe this particular model was 10K. The top 9000s got very pricey, but I don't think the Contest model was in that category. ;)

    The contest is the same as all the other 9000s the only difference is lack of options were others came equipped with and there was a 400 watt model and a tft display the 9000s in general are the same radio

    The 7300 suckered consumers with visual entertainment i see so many post were hams are taking pictures n videos of the spectrum display and asking each other about unrecognized signals lol its funnie. I think most hams today cant operate a radio without a spectrum display i would like to see the modern day ham tune up ts 520 or a johnson txer the wouldn’t know were to begin haha

    I see ridiculously high prices for amateur radio equipment on eBay. I see discontinued equipment selling for much more than the equipment was when new.
