For the past 10 years or so I've been running the "Waltham Wranglers Swapnet"
here in the Boston area I think the net is as old as our 2Meter repeater from
what anyone can remember!
There were two 6M AM rigs offered last week that I think may still be available,
both from the same guy. First a Heathkit Seneca 6&2 meter TX (think the
asking price was $80) and a "Laugh-at-it" HA460 (think $40) The guy is Mike
N1GCT. He had a deal go sour or eham or qrz and even after offering the guy a
refund, the other party posted a warning about him. I've hosstraded several
things with him without issue, however YMMV. You can contact him at
N1GCT at yahoo.com
Now back to our regular programing........
