Great price find!!
Same price (almost) as the 979 at Effingham. These are on sale for some reason. They just bought a boat load? Or they are on closeout or being discontinued? RCI was just sitting on a pile of these parts and it was the only thing it could make at the time? As the parts factories struggle to make a variety of items, the production runs that they do make determine what the radio factory can make. I wonder what country they are made in?

Just get the ones you’ve been wanting. Thats my take. This ain’t an expensive hobby at the lower end, so, with things getting hinky. . . .

Kind if what I'm doing while we can. As unstable as everything is we better or we'll lose out if it all falls flat. That's the way for me to justify the 959 that was just ordered. Do I need it? Not right now but if it's needed then it will be there... And a good match for the 503hd that's on stand by.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you order the 959 from? It's next on my list.

Why “b” be bettah?

Oh, Starlite

828, you’d get confused wandering the Caprock if the Great Milky White Way got to ALSO walking around inside your cab. Too bright already those stars outside.

Our Elder Brother was watching out for you.
Side mic just might reach all the way to . . . .

So we know you got the right radio, in the right version.

Just got it in, they are made in Vietnam. Just like the Texas Ranger 797 and 936.

Checking out the conversion now. Plug in the plug and unsolder the blob. What would happen if the blob was left there? Oh wait a minuet, looks like that is what keeps it in 10m mode without the plug in. The socket for the plug says B C D E F G H and the blob is from H to 8V. So a person could easily put a selector switch in to give the different bands. But I only need uppers and lowers so the stock C D E switch is just right.

    ...ebay. I will also file a case/complaint with my local sheriff's dept tomorrow. I'm good friends with the sheriff so I hope you'll be able to help me in this process. This guy has been a criminal (at least on eBay) for over11 years. I see the first post on here regarding his criminal behavior was in 2011. Has anybody else filed a complaint against this low-life scam artist? Any suggestions/help on getting my $$$ back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

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

    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.
