Guess I should clarify....includes U.S. First class postage. I forgot how international AAC is.

Doesn't sound like a deal to me. It's going to be all old parts that were laying around that nobody wanted.

Right?! I'd prefer the reverse deal: Send me $25 and I'll send 13oz of random electronics crap out of my basement to you. Most of it IMPOSSIBLE to find elsewhere because sane people threw it away years ago. Thread Starter #### KL7AJ Joined Nov 4, 2008 2,229 Right?!

Am thinking this is another term for "Floor Sweepings" I'm CERTAIN the package (including CANADIAN shipping) is quite possibly a LESSER value than the $25.00 US ($31.19 Cdn.) BUT - Thank you for the offer, just the same.

Out of curiosity I visited the site qrz.com.

Its a legit tech site for Radio HAMs and he seems like an experienced radio guy, if you visit here and enter his callsign you can see more, a bio, many pictures of his rig etc.

e.g.

"After completing about half of an electrical engineering degree at El Camino College, I felt the call of the north, and moved to North Pole, Alaska, where the job of Chief Engineer of KJNP Radio, a 50,000 watt Christian broadcast station, fell into my lap. I spent the next 17 years crawling around inside transmitters, as well as doing some radio announcing. Afterwards, I was on the ground floor of the creation of HAARP (High Frequency Active Aurora Research Project), and still do some occasional support work for the continuing HAARP experiments."

and more, if one searches the web:

But no reviews that I can find.
