Is it a non-US VX-3E or a domestic VX-3R? IOW, does it happen to be one of those grey market ones from Hong Kong? Just asking because the cheapest I've seen VX-3R (US-market one, e.g. the one with the warranty and right default repeater offsets) is the one from HRO.

It is US but used. Was pawned and never picked up. I just got lucky for once. Wasn't even ready to buy but figured what the heck, I sniped and got it.

What's the deal with the Hong Kong ones that are $150 + $50 shipping? are those the grey market ones? I think I'll just go to HRO..

The Hong Kong ones have a couple of issues. One is that Vertex will not honor the US warranty on them, partially or primarily I suspect because they don't carry the FCC approval. The auto repeater offset will not be correct for the USA, so you have to program all of them in, which is tedious if you have to add them by hand in the field. Plus, yeah, $50 to ship them (if they show up).

That's awesome. Even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a while. Even a broken clock can be right twice a day. :-)
