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

One of the hardest tests and shortest tests I ever took was a morse code test. No problem sending but when you first hear morse at 12 words a minute is seems impossible to learn, even more amazing are people who can receive at 25 words or more per minute.
The problem most beginners find is that you hear the first few letters and your mind tries to guess the next one, you hear TH.... and find you fill in the next letter automatically only to get it wrong........... anyway won't bore you further..........Hope you get your FRG 8800..........Happy listening.

I can read and send at about 20wpm... used to read at this speed when I was in the R.N.

Well, I am now the proud owner of an excellent example of the Yaesu FRG8800..... First class condition, in fact... as good as new. ... Really pleased.
not from a forum member, but from the seller looking on Google for "wanted communications receiver"..... which led him to my post on here, he contacted me through my website linky, and subsequent negotiations, over the past week, resulted in the radio being despatched from Yorkshiree, yesterday, and arriving in Portsmouth today... ( Parcelforce ).
so.... advertising on here...... works... !
