    Hello All,

    I was just given a RCI 2985DX by a buddy who bought it from an estate sale of a silent key. He didn't really give it to me as he wants me to pay him back what he bought it for. He's a type of guy you can't really say no to. I didn't want to hurt any feelings so I accepted his offer and agreed to pay him just whenever. Truth is I'm not really interested in the radio. I've got way too many projects. Not that this is a project radio. I plugged it in and hooked up an antenna. It seems to work fine. I messed around with it for maybe 15 minutes and unhooked it. No mic came with it. I figured I offer it up here if anyone is interested. It's a little dusty but looks great shape. I'll consider reasonable offers.
    Apologies if this is not the place for this offer.
    If interested make me an offer. I may or may not accept.

    Thanks,
    John

    Hmmm, I might get around to that next day or two. As I said I don't have a mic so you'll only get a vid of RX.

    Man with the attifutde you have its seems. Like a who cares if I sell it or not, type, and without a some better photos and an asking price at least, people aren't going to buy it. There are some smart SOB's here and they don't fall for scams!! Not he ones that have been here any length of time anyhow. Not trying to be rude, God honest. Just look at it from a different perspective, like you were the buyer!! Then think how you would feel. Just saying. Radio most likey works. Who knows. But people aren't going to spend their hard earned money on something they don't know much about. JMHO's. And again, nor trying to be harsh. Just trying to help you sell the radio actually.

    It is a 150 watts linear and never a bad report on the audio. Try one you will like it

    Sean, Appreciate your HO. FYI I'm not a scammer. I simply have no use for this type of "export" radio. Before I go to the time to make a vid or post more pics I was simply asking if anyone is interested. Seems to be, so this weekend (when I get some time) I'll take several pics and make a vid. As a result I'll also set a price. MHO, I can keep it or sell it either way. What I really mean is I'm in no hurry. but if someone is interested I'll let it go probably cheap. I got it for $250 and didn't really want it but couldn't say NO to the OM. If you're interested add shipping. If I take the time to add more pics (best my phone will do) and a vid the price goes up. It does RX I have no mic so TX is not tested. I have lots of other radios that blow this one away in technology and function. It's just another old collectible I have no nostalgia for. I agree there are a lot of smart SOB's on here and they already know what this radio is. Just saying.

    73,
    John W4CJB

    If it works that would be a good price, an untested TX changes things though.

    Have you thought about craigslist? selling local would give prospective buyers a chance to check it out themselves. I'm sure you can see how "I got it from someone else and don't know if it works" doesn't really inspire confidence.

    Non sir, I am like you and have no interest in radios of that type myself. Not my cup of tea. I use and HF radio, and Icom 746 and have a kenwood TS-140s as a back up radio as well as a few other radios as well. Was just trying to help with you selling it to be honest. Sorry if I offended you in any way, not my intention, and I too get it, the didn't need it, more helping someone else out I guess you could call it. Ow my house is filled with stuff that doesn't get used much LOL!!
    Again, sorry if I offended you. Totally not the way I am!! Promise that!! Anyhow, hope you get the radio sold as soon as you can. Good evening.
