No the prices are weak. I bought my 2800 for $110 last year and I believe it's replacement goes for $125 at HRO.

The FT-2900 usually goes for about $150~$160 and the FT-1900 goes for $130~$140. A brand new, in the box FT-2800 is not worth the same as a new FT-2900. He should be expecting $100~$125 tops. A year or two ago these radios were cheaper but the dollar exchange rate is not going in our favor on imported stuff.

Default VX8R w/GPS and accessories - $350 (Monument)

No affiliation. Seems pretty nice.

I'm close to buying this:

From what I've read it can be used to measure swr for antenna tuning. Anyone have experience with it?

It's a true peak reading power/SWR meter. Nice piece of equipment, 'specially for $50. But make sure you realize that the YS-60 is for HF, 1.6MHz to 60MHz. The YS-500 covers VHF and UHF, 140 MHz up to 525MHz. This one would work for CB stuff, as well as 160m to 6m ham.

Dave thanks for the heads up, I didn't realize this one was for HF only, or read right past it anyway.

Not a bad price (new about $175) for a neat little tuner. I have one of these, BTW, ideal for portable and QRP since it can run on batteries without much work.

LDG Z11-Pro Autotuner. HAM radio - $120 (Broomfield)

LDG Z11-Pro Autotuner in great condition.

http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/5388

Meet the Z-11ProII, everything you always wanted in a small, portable tuner designed from the ground up for battery operation. Only 5" x 7.5" x 1.5", and weighing only 18 ounces, it handles 0.1 to 125 watts, making it ideal for both QRP and standard 100 watt transceivers from 160 - 6 meters.

The Z-11ProII uses LDG’s state-of-the-art processor-controlled Switched-L tuning network. It will match dipoles, verticals, inverted-Vs or virtually any coax-fed antenna. With an optional LDG balun, it will also match longwires or antennas fed with ladder-line.

The Z-11ProII has 2,000 memories automatically storing tuning configurations for each frequency and band as you use them. Frequency sensing circuitry lets the Z-11Pro “know” your operating band and frequency. Whenever you transmit on or near a frequency you’ve used before, the Z-11ProII retunes from memory almost instantly. Full auto mode tunes with SSB. Just speak into the mic and it tunes! Memories are retained indefinitely.

Rugged and easy-to-read LEDs indicate SWR and status. The Z-11ProII uses latching relays which retain the tuned configuration even when powered down; current draw when not tuning is effectively zero.
