A friend just called asking if I would be selling one of my 6500. I told him they both got sold many months ago.

Anyway, turns out he had a 6600 on back order in the UK but has backed out of it for various concerns read on QRZ etc. So, Mark is now looking for a used 6500 in UK or EU for about £2,400. Told him to look for one with v2 loaded.

If you know of one please leave a message here and I will relay (Mark is not in the community yet), or you can email him directly

His first mistake was trusting anything on QRZ.

As nice as the 6500 is witch I own,  he should have stayed with the 6600 on order.

Thanks Steven.  I've contacted Mark directly and await a reply from him.  The only reason I'm considering selling my 6500 (LE!) with v2 software installed is that I am awaiting delivery to the UK of the new models.  The next decision will be deciding which to go for....

Tried to use email address posted and it bounced with notice that no such email address existed. Perhaps you made a typo in the address?

sorry guys, my mistake. His email is not as I previously type it.

I should also state he's looking for a UK (or EU) seller only. Imports from outside EU or USA are simply too expensive due to import duty, VAT, shipping etc.
