Greg -

He's actually not selling his 'personal collection', think radio-mart
on this one. He picks the stuff up at 'fests and through ads, then
flips it. The recent unbuilt Apache that went for over $2K and wasn't
complete is probably the reason he made his feedback private. Before
that, it was only the bidder's IDs kept private. Check amfone.net for
more info on the Apache deal, we tried to let the radio world know.

Do a Google search on his userID and you'll find plenty of info,
including being arrested and sentenced for theft of equipment from a
marina that was resold on ebay.

Most of all, never assume anything is as stated in ebay listings -
particularly if identities, feedback, or anything else is hidden.
