  2. Buyer beware! We have had a scammer hit ScubaBoard and he's been quite pernicious, assuming names of people we know. It's important that you become very leery of doing business with anyone you don't personally know, even if it seems they have a long history here. I do suggest that you take the time to protect your account and change your password, which should be done periodically anyway. He has a preference for Zelle (which may change) and posts deals that are too good to be true. So, we will remind you of a few things to do in order to keep yourself from being scammed...

    If at all possible, make the final deal in person If you must do it over the interwebs, use PayPal

    Do NOT use the "Friends and Family" option

    Avoid using payment options like Zelle that have no way of recovering your money

    Check the pics being used via Google

    Ask for a recent pic with a date

    Abort and report the sale if the seller becomes aggressive or abusive

    He will change his pattern as he continues to fail, so be smarter than him

    If a price that seems to be too good to be true usually is

    It's smarter to patronize businesses that advertise on SB anyway

    Report any suspicious activity ASAP

    We will not arbitrate any deals

    We will ban anyone who seems to be a scammer

    Consider changing your password often, not using the same username/ password combo on multiple sites and making it easier with a password manager app Lastpass, Dashlane, 1password and DataVault are examples

    Yeah fair point. I think im talking about a different model. I know for a fact that there was an older PLB that had a built in radio in it. In Ireland and other countries, you must have a licence to operate any VHF radio.

    Somehow I wasn't getting alerts for this! Sorry I have sold them all...

    As far as the "License Needed" - are they going to come arrest me if I use it with out a license? Because if I am lost at sea and someone comes to arrest me for using a radio.. I am OK with this...

    "He was lost on a deserted island for 20 years before we found him... There was a perfectly good radio there, but he chose not to use it because he didn't have his license". :D.

    In my experience, most of the use if the VHF radio on the first-gen NLL was NOT for emergencies, and for this you DO need a license.

    Not as I read the FCC FAQ: Ship Radio Stations

    I think there was a bit of concern and hand wringing about individuals obtaining an MMSI without an actual craft, but I thought that was resolved.

    For what it's worth I have two of the original VHF nautilus radios that I might be willing to part with.

    Battery or charging circuit, I expect, but possibly unwarranted "power off" current drain.
