Re: Value of TM D700A


Amateur radio prices and completely arbitrary IMO... everyone seems to think they have good with old radios having very little depreciation, which IMO seems silly.  Too bad cars were not like this.

looks like $250 to $300 max just went through some auction site. Not to bad for an old radio

As I said, it was to a friend so I made concessions based on getting that much life out of a radio I bought years ago. I literally had not taken it out of its box in 5 years as I have a D710. I decided a while ago that a radio in a box did no one any good and I would rather a newer ham get to use it. 

As I suggested, check QRZ and QTH.COM to get real numbers on what they have sold for recently.

If the "going rate" is only $100.00, I'd just keep it as a back-up!

I believe I sold mine to a friend for $100 a few years ago. It served me well and was 16 years old or so at the time so I got more than my money’s worth out of it.

But take a look at QRZ and to see what recent ones has fetched.

Anyone know what the "going rate" would be for a fully-functioning Kenwood TM-D700A rig?

I have one, working fine, but would like to "upgrade" to the TM-D710X series, and would like to sell this one first.

Complete with OEM mic, accessories, and manuals.
