> I have for sale a used Icom ICW32A dual-band HT. The HT was purchased in
> March of 1998 for approximately $300.
> The HT still transmits, and has a great receiver front end.
> There are two problems with the radio that I believe someone with a bit of

> The problems are as follows:
> 1. The conections on the jack panel on the top of the radio have become
> loose, so that the plugs for the mic, power supply, etc., do not make a
> sound electrical connection. and
> 2. The internal speaker in the radio itself has become muffled. This
> second problem is particularly surprising to me, since I have never

> In all honesty, the above problems are not the reason I wish to sell the

> "user friendly" HT, rather than paying the costs to get the ICw32A fixed.
> I have the original box, manual, and all other accessories that came with
> the radio when it was ordered back in 1998. I also will throw in the
> extra alkaline battery case for no additional charge.
> I am asking $100 for the entire package, and that'll include shipping.
> And, this price is negotiable.
> I am interested in fairness here, and would like to see this HT get
> repaired and go to someone who could use it.
