Other than the seller is attempting to sell the item as NOS when it appears used from the exterior images. Know nothing about the unit, likewise virtually nothing worth mentioning comes up on a Google query.

Look at the ad and read it again. The seller says the inside images were from a damaged unit that is NOT for sale and the scuffed up exterior images are clearly labeled LIBRARY images meaning they are NOT from the unit being offered for sale. With continuous coverage from 2.0-30.0 MHz they would make a nice HF rig if you could get the control head as well.Racal made some mighty fine stuff to say the least.

The Javelin was developed by Matthew Kendall and Nick Massey at Racal in Vancouver in the late 90's. I worked with them, particularly in modifying an SGC ATU to handle the continuous power output. It was a superbly-designed radio, built like a tank and probably ahead of its time. It did not sell well and probably contributed to the closing of Racal in Vancouver in the late 90's.

    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.

    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.
