Silent Auction for Yaesu Rigs

PCARS will be holding a silent auction for two rigs. Bids will be received until midnight November 25th. We have established a minimum bid for each rig. The person who has the highest bid over the minimum will win the auction. You may bid on one or both of the rigs. They are being sold “AS IS” with no returns. A picture and the minimum bid for each transceiver is shown below. All bids will be made by email sent to AC8NT@j3solutions.com. Please specify clearly the rig that you are bidding on and the bid offered. If no bids over the minimums are received we will be putting the rigs on Ebay in early December.
