Yes, you could easily put another zero on the end of the price to get it's value in today's dollar.

Our compensation needs to go up by 2.5X whatever one makes now to pace productivity increases since then. (Then, higher cost of living added to that).

X10 as a price comp is accurate, but the understanding (meaning) of imported slave-made goods isn’t.

Got sidetracked with that site into reading on tube radios of the AM table-top variety. Broadcast. Looked at one restoration and the sellers comment was, now good for another 62-years.

$299. Beautiful.

Everything today is ugly.

The HTX-212 was actually made by Kenwood for Radio Shack. I forget the Kenwood model number but I remember a few guys getting them and referring to them as their Kenwood HTX-212. LOL

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

  • @ kb9ghn:
    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.
