Question
SKP ABS-1600 antenna
SKP ABS-1600 antenna  
Hi,
I have several SKP ABS-1600 antennae that I got as part of an estate auction.  They are never used, still in the tube.  I have no use for them, and I was wondering if you could tell me what they are worth if I were to put them up for sale?  I did some research and it seems that some people really like them, some people don't.

Anyway, I got a whole bunch of radio equipment in this auction, and I'm looking to get it to people who can use it.  I'm willing to sell it cheaply in order to move it out quickly.  Any ideas?

Thanks for taking my question.

Mike K.

Answer
Find a nearby ham radio club.  Ask them about local ham auctions/swap meets/markets.  Not sure where, in California, you might be, but there used to be a huge monthly ham swap meet at TRW in So Cal. I'm sure that your local ham clubs would be able to point you in the right direction.
