ALEJANDRIA, COLOMBIA SA
We finally had a break in the everyday/everynight thunderstorms here, so I was able to get the new roof installed on my shack/workshop. Spent the last week cleaning and rearranging all of my "stuff." The place was a mess, but at least now I can walk around without having to climb over s**t. While going through things, I found a box of reference books that I'd forgotten about. One of the books was "UGLY'S Electrical References. Pocket-size with tons of useful information. I remember finding this in a used book store back in the 2000s. I paid $2.00 if I remember correctly. Checked on Ebay, and the current edition goes for 20 bucks !! Cheapest used one I saw was $5, which is reasonable. Anyway . . . it's something I think every tech can use.

My edition is 17 years old, so the newer ones may have more info added.

Thanks for the tip! I like looking at various reference material, but have never run across this one so I took a look on eBay and picked up the 2020 version

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
