William, I am not in the market for one but I certainly think your price is
reasonable - radio + ps with speaker for $85 plus maybe another $50 for
shipping.  Not bad.  Unfortunately the market just seems to be pretty
darned soft these days!  Darned.  I've got two myself that need to be out
there in new homes but I've had little interest.  Well, interest but not a
single nibble.

Just as an FYI, watch out when shipping the power supply - the heavy
transformer can easily 'bend' the chassis.  Nothing that a bit of judicious
'de-bending' won't cure but it can be a PITA. That happened to one of mine
and I intend on fastening the power supply to a 1/2" plywood board when I
ship it to add a bit of structure to it.

Best of luck and I'll be watching to see how it goes.  You might want to
consider making a package with shipping included.
