RE: FW: At-500

Actually, this guy is asking the same $425. As I recall, the AT-500 was
around $600 new. Hams just are weird, and the recent influx of no-coders has
aggravated things. What other hobby lets you ask 75% of new price on stuff
over a decade old? The really bizarre part is that people go along with
this. Would you pay 75% for a 10-year-old car?

what worse are hams that demand "mint condition" used gear. How do you keep
stuff that’s legitimately being used in a "mint" state? That sort of
thinking just rewards "collectors" who speculate in ham gear.

I’ll check into Burghardt. At least they have a warranty, but $425 might as
well be $4,250 to me. 🙂

Looks like a straight ahead to me…Last one I sold brought $495. The
the other guy "is Burghardt amateur radio, they have one its $425…""
25 more than this guy but it is Burghardt radio, and there fore the
extra 25 might be worth it…Up to you…I can call em and order it or
you can do it on the internet quite easily, just drop em a line…73
