From Jimmy Russ, AB4KA

Icom IC-718 HF Transceiver. I bought it new 12/07/18 from HRO in Atlanta and I am the only owner. It is in excellent shape and unmodified. The side handle and rubber feet have been added by me. I also added a little nail polish to the volume, rf gain, shift and RIT knobs to make the settings easier to see. The only “ding” if you will is inside…I had added the TXCO to it, and I later removed it and at some point while taking it out I touched the fan frame with my soldering iron and put a divot in the side. Has no effect on operation (didn’t touch the fan blade) but I figured I’d better mention it. I also had installed the CW filter and have since removed it (those are hard to come by and I wanted it for another radio hihi). I have the radio, original hand microphone, (shortened) power cord and manual/paperwork. $400

2014 ARRL Handbook, 100th Anniversary Edition. Hardcover. Has a callsign (not mine) imprinted on the cover. CD-rom is missing. $10
