Thanks for the tip, Mario!

As with most (if not all) ShopGoodwill.com auctions, this IC-R75 come with no warranty, is untested and sold “as-is.” I suppose you could receive it only to find that it doesn’t function–that is the risk with Goodwill over, say, eBay.

I’ve purchased from ShopGoodwill before knowing this and was very pleased my item worked.

Still, it’s most encouraging that the receiver comes complete with box, manual and power supply.  Those are all good signs. The current price is $378.78 at time of posting. Someone may get a good deal for a spare receiver.

While looking at the IC-R75 listing, the ShopGoodwill screen also pointed out a JRC NRD-525 with an auction end date of November 29.

Looks to be in good shape, but again, it’s being sold as-is in untested condition:

Again, thanks for the tip, Mario!

Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Ivan, who writes:

[U]niversal radio has a used NRD 525 for $699.

If I had the time to use it I would have picked it up already. These are so hard to come by and represent the best of the shortwave listening era.

I’ve never owned a JRC NRD-525, but I’ve heard good comments about the radio and its performance. The NRD-525 can be found in Universal Radio’s Used Radio List. No photo of the actual unit has been provided, but the condition is listed as “good.” Universal Radio is a trustworthy retailer, so used equipment can be purchase with confidence. Indeed, all of their used equipment (save items marked “as-is”) come with a 60 day limited warranty.
