Well Good evening Radio Friends, Well I finally broke down and ordered a new Power Supply to run my radio at home! I found on eBay a brand new Pyramid PS8kk 6 amp power supply for only $39.99 and free shipping!! The one I have been running is a cheap used radio shack 25 amp switching power supply and I'm noticing more and more the Rfi hash when I run the power supply,plus it's very loud,I mean the fan on it,I read somewhere online that switching power supplies can cause Rfi hash in radios, hopefully the one I'm getting will be a little quieter!! Will let you know when I have it hooked up!!

We used to have the American eagle net which is where my number 336 comes from. There used to be two controllers I could reach from Western Mass and Eastern Connecticut. We're talking about 20 to 30 years ago. I have the 980 in my truck paired off with an RM KL 503 p. I'm pretty happy with it

    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.
  • @ 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.
