Selling Radios

It is not at all unusual for a radio amateur who has had more than a few decades invested in the hobby to own all the kinds of equipment he ever had. On the other hand, it is rare for someone to have held on to every piece of equipment they ever acquired. A certain amount of that stuff was bought back after it was discovered that it still had value.

Most of us don’t realize what we have until it is gone. Then we attempt to get it back and end up paying more than it is worth.

I am sure this is true of many things but I know for a fact that is the case with old radios. Whatever the reason for selling, the most common reason is that you found something better. So you should not be offended if buyers don’t want to pay a lot for your old stuff. Makes no difference what the condition. Working or not. Clean or dirty. All beat up or in like-new condition. It is old. You obviously don’t want it or you would not be selling it. Most of us are reluctant to pay a premium for something old and unwanted.

Unless you are a dealer in new radios, there is not much money to be made. You wont get rich selling radios regardless of how many you have. At least that is my experience.
