HAM radio operators are compulsive hoarders
There it is. I said it. Time to turn the tide. Enough is enough. What’s the point of having five HF rigs? A dozen or so receivers? It’s time to sell off some gear.
I know the reason behind my reluctance to sell off gear. When I sold gear in the past, I always regretted it later. The equipment I have is always in pristine condition, both electronically and cosmetically. You will have a hard time finding gear in the same condition. There’s always a voice in my head whispering “Do you really think the new owner will take care of it the same way you did?” Sigh.
Unfortunately I’m running out of space. My Yaesu FT-840 already found a new owner and will be picked up later this week. Next on the list of things to go is my FRG-7700 with all the accessories that come with it: converter, tuner and preselector. Darn, I will miss that beautiful warm audio… The FRG-8800, including the built-in VHF converter, will be put up for sale after that. Darn, I will miss that beautiful warm audio…
There’s a lot of interest for my FT-7B and YF-7B, and I could sell my complete FT-901 line without placing an ad. I’m not ready for that though. One step at the time.
