Well, the negotiating didn’t go so well.  Actually, it went ok, they just couldn’t lower the prices anymore without taking a loss.  Even a stack of $100 fanned out and waving in front of them wouldn’t make them budge.  But, that turned out to be a good thing!

The next week, I started looking through the classifieds on eHam.net.  Only searched for a couple of days  before I found one.  Only 2 months old, never mobile and only used a couple hours.  The guy decided not to replace the radio he was currently using as his mobile rig.  NICE!  Price?  $889. Brand new off the shelf this thing goes for $1239.

I think I did pretty good.  A little patience paid off. Hopefully I’ll remain patient while it’s being shipped. Yup, another week.
