No Longer - Wanted.....FRG 8800 Communications receiver - RESULT !

OK.. so it is "hardware".... BUT... we used to have a buy and sell board, and when that disappeared we were told we could use chit chat....
SO... has anyone got a Yaesu FRG8800 in good working order, that they can negotiate for a sum of cider vouchers to be exchanged?

Yes, I know about that one on Ebay.... it is a bit too pricey, considering earlier sales for the past 3 months....
he is asking a lot more than it is worth, even with the vhf converter fitted.... add on to the price £25 for postage, and another £38 for warranty, it becomes £308. about £100 over the top Shocked

Yeah, been to a few, but none in my area for a few months, and the one at Newbury does not have a  Bring and Buy section, that I recall... all is individual stall holders, and a few trade stands,
not likely to get one down that route.....
so.... still looking... !

Is this too far away? http://www.shortwave.co.uk/contactus.html
Its in Christchurch Hants, I bought my air-band scanner from there, doesn't look much from the outside but a complete Aladdin's cave inside.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Wanted.....FRG 8800 Communications receiver

Yup !...  Thanks for that... I do have my eye on ebay...but I have been "done" on a previous one with a "similar" no frills sales pitch... so am trying to stay clear of ebay.
I thought that if I bought one on this forum there would be less likelihood of being "done" a second time....  Wink

Re: Wanted.....FRG 8800 Communications receiver

I`m only a Pirate in my dreams!... Don`t transmit, only SWL.... although I could have a licence, I prefer not to, due to costs.... Yeah, I know QRP stuff is cheap, but I would want to go the whole hog !... Aerial farms, linears, three or four rigs, incl mobiles, etc etc etc etc....
Have just found CWcom..... which is using morse "on line" for "chat" purposes with like minded persons!.... my call on there is GEMS .... QRV after 20:00 if I feel like doing some morse !...
At present am trying to get my key to work thru a D9 and USB converter to my laptop as it does not have a serial port... need a D9 to USB driver Huh
