Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Robinson, who recently discovered two note-worthy items on eBay.
The first is a WinRadio Excelsior SDR.
A seller on eBay is offering the WR-G39DDCi. Just picked one up on a Buy It Now for $200.
He still has some up without Buy It Now but the price is creeping up. Heck of a deal considering the price new….
That’s simply amazing you found an Excelsior for $200! WOW! Perhaps this eBay seller will post more WR-G39DDCi units with a BuyItNow price? I’d be willing to bet these may have all come from a commercial or government auction.
The second item Dan shares is a Sony CRF-230 with original box.
This guy is trying to get too high a price, but these 230s are rarely seen with the original box. There are many 230s on eBay and prices are usually in the several 100s of dollar range. Anyone considering this one should insist on seeing a video of the receiver powered on and working. The seller’s starting price level is at lest 2 to 3 times what a SONY CRF-330K would be in LNIB condition.
A rare bird indeed, but as you point out, Dan, the BuyItNow price is astronomically high.
Note the seller does have a Make An Offer option, too. I suspect that’s what they’ll end up accepting if they ever wish to sell this unit.
Thanks again for sharing your eBay finds, Dan!
