Hi All, this attached email may be of some use. Finding decent boat anchor
rigs is getting harder :-(

I have no idea about the shipping, so be ready to ask before buying.

The Gwinnett Radio Society (GARS) has been given the privilege of
liquidating a very substantial silent key estate.  Our team has been
working a few months organizing what will ultimately be hundreds if not
thousands of items.  Our plan is to publish spreadsheets periodically to
the Atlanta amateur radio community as we extract, inventory, and organize
the equipment.  Ultimately, we’ve already reserved five tables at the Stone
Mountain Hamfest with the goal of completing the liquidation of the many
small items.

The prices we are proposing are generally deeply discounted with the intent
to get this gear back in use for members of the local amateur community.
We feel this is what the SK would have wanted.  All proceeds from the sales
are going to the *GARS Scholarship Fund*.

Here is the spreadsheet listing equipment currently available: GARS Silent
Key Sale
As items are sold, the spreadsheet will be updated to indicate a *SOLD*

We’re set up to receive payment via PayPal (the preferred method), credit
card, or if necessary, cash.  Once you inspect the equipment you wish to
purchase, PayPal payments are made using a link at the http://www.gars.org/
website.  Credit card payments will be securely accepted using the GARS
Square® card reader.

Here is the PayPal purchase procedure:

1.       Browse to http://www.gars.org/gars/donations-to-the-club/

2.       Click on the "*Donate*" button under the heading, "*GARS SK
Memorial Fund for Education*"

3.       Enter the total dollar amount of the items you are purchasing

4.       Click the appropriate PayPal button

5.       Enter text in the PayPal note area indicating the purchase is for
the “SK Sale”

To schedule viewing of an item, send an email to forsale at gars.org with your
contact information, the item(s) of interest, and the day/time you’d like
to inspect the item.  Expressing interest does *not* “reserve” an item for
you.  We tried that and it turned out to not be practical.  I've had
inquiries wishing to "reserve" an option to buy but then not be able to
come over to inspect the item for too lengthy a time.  I can't keep ready
buyers waiting on the chance that someone quick with an email *might* make
a purchase a few weeks from now.  All sales are on a first-come-first-serve

Being retired, I’m generally available to accommodate an inspection and
purchase that’s convenient for you.
