Icom IC-706MKIIG on Ebay
Against my better judgment, I bought a ham radio on EBay today. For one thing, I don’t really have the money to be spending on a radio, but it was a great deal at $650 brand new in the box. When I tried to pay for it, paypal gave me an error saying that the user couldn’t accept money right now. That is never a good sign. We have exchanged e-mails and I indicated that I would pay when his account was active again. He indicated that his account was suspended when he was orders in the national guard, if true, good enough of an excuse for me. I won’t complete the sale w/o paypal buyer protection. I hope it works out, I really want this radio, if not, that’s ok, like I said, I didn’t really need to spend the money anyway.
