Lazy listing by radioworld

Post by mr_m3 »

just noticed this gem by radioworld, where in the description have copied the price from another website
"DXPATROL SDR Receiver 100 kHz - 2000MHz MK4 99.00 € Buy now In stock, shipped in 1 or two days. ⓘ"

must not read the descriptions before copy and pasting lol! :D :D

Hope i'm not the only one who gets a chuckle out of this. :lol: :lol:

i wouldn't buy anything from Dodgy Dave..

chances are it's triple what he paid for it, untested and most of the time doesn't work.

Purchased my FT-991A from Radioworld and a few filters for another radio, plus a few other bits & bobs.
Only issue I've had is two of the filters went AWOL & I had issues with them answering emails.

I bought a radio and speaker, paid for them....radio arrived but no speaker. left it a few days and contacted them... apparently they didn't have them in stock. Took over a month in the end. Would have been nice to have been told this before or at least at the time of purchase.

Not great customer communication, but never had any duff kit from them.
