Hey Dave,
I would be interested in the Kenwood D710A. How do I get in touch with the gentleman?

It's over on Craigslist, so you contact him through the linked email. I got your PM, too.

Not a great price (HRO has it new at $490, so with tax you'd save about $125). But a neat radio and having D-STAR would be cool.

Icom ID-880H Ham Radio - $400 (Summit)

An Icom ID-880H 2m/70cm D-STAR ham amateur radio mobile transceiver. Almost new condition. Never used mobile. With box and all standard accessories.

Sure, sometimes. For a while there was a lot of things coming up but not so much lately.

This guy is a vintage rig, probably pretty stylin' when it was new in the early 1980s. It's all solid state and they did have a VFO rotary encoder issue, so check it for function before. But at $125, if it works fine, this is an OK little radio. The display will go wacky if it has an issue, it's pretty obvious. Sometimes cleaning fixes it, sometimes not.

One thing to know, the power supply for this radio was dedicated to it. The power regulation was done inside the radio, not the power supply, so this is a matched pair. You could use any power supply with the radio itself, just that the power supply puts out about 19V AC (IIRC) and so it would not be useful with anything else.

ICOM IC-701 HF Transceiver with power supply - $125 (Longmont)\

ICOM IC-701 Transceiver, IC-701PS. Original packing materials, mike, power cables, boxed in dry environment last 15 years. Operating manual. Ham radio, amateur radio.

Solid HF rig, fair price.

Ham Radio - 4 sale Icom 718 - $475 (Ft Lupton, Co)

Icom 718 HF Transceiver, manual and original box SSB CW AM. No extra filters, DSP, with the speaker in the front of the radio nothing wrong with it - works great and fully functional. I will be getting another back up rig. So this one must go.
