I would rather see "I have no experience with radios but it looks good to me and I want more than you are will to pay. End of conversation.

Gym socks? Be thankful. I received a radio well packed with salvaged foam sheet littered with many used feminine sanitary pads. There should be a law....

Good God :shock: I hope that's not true, because that's actually a biological hazard. A serious one at that.

But does it tune any stations? That would be the most useful information. I take "static" to mean it doesn't work.

I usually ask that as a follow up question. Static usually means repairable, but not useable.
