Thats Ironic I have an FT-840 I purchased off Ebay a few years back it was damaged and it was temperarily fixed and it actually worked great for 2 years then the display started flashing I was thinking about getting this one sent out to Burghardt aswell I have 2 of these FT-840 and they are outstanding HF rigs and simple to use. I was going to give my 2 licensed teenagers each one of these FT-840 and one of theFT-2800M I have here but Im thinking now about just giving them each a Yaesu FT-857D that way they have everything covered in one little rig ;).

Let us know what was wrong with your FT-840 and what the $$$ damage is I like Burghardt they do good work and thats the only place I send repairs I cant do they are also pretty quick with turnaround time.

    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.

    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.
