eBay Find: Mario spots a new/open box Yaesu FRG-100

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Mario Filippi, who writes:

Hi Thomas,

Hope all is well. There’s a NIB Yaesu FRG-100 on eBay; see pic attached.

Amazing that there is one around like that. Hefty price [$748.00] but reasonable as used ones go for $350 – $410 lately.

Even FRG-7’s are commanding good prices.

Have a good week Thomas! 73’s,

Mario, N2HUN

Thank you for the tip, Mario! It is a pristine radio! The seller is claiming this is new–and it looks it–but the condition is listed as “Open box” so I assume the previous owner opened the box but never used the radio. The plastic film still covers the display area and looks pristine. I agree: it’s amazing when things like this pop up on eBay! The price ($748.00) as you say is steep, but it does appear the seller is open to offers.

Thanks for the tip, Mario!

Spread the radio love

    Pokud nebyl p?ístroj používán, ale jen dob?e uskladn?n, není pot?eba kondenzátory vym??ovat! D?lal jsem mnoho test? na toto téma. Kondenzátory trpí používáním a to díky elektrolytickému rozpadu pokud jsou pod nap?tím. Kondenzátory, které nebyly pod nap?tím jsou v po?ádku i po ?ty?iceti letech. Sta?í je pouze zformovat a toto v?tšinou obstarávají odpory v zapojení… Lovec…

    No mention of whether this is a later model revision with improved wideband filters ? Any FM board included ?

    It looks nice however one should bear in mind that these receivers are over 25 years old and will likely need new capacitors.

    I have been in touch with the seller on this and pointed out that the description was not accurate, which accounts for the changed wording to New/Open Box.
