This is a long story, I'll try not to get into too much detail, and  
please any responses send them directly to me.

I have an Icom W32A (dual band full-duplex HT) package for sale.  It  
includes a wall charger; an off brand Master Charger 1a (drop in  
charger); BP-173 9.6v 650mAh battery; 9.6v 1100 mAh W&W battery; Icom  
antenna and original manual.

I bought this recently at the Orlando hamfest, and it seemed to be  
working fine.  It was a package deal, so I sold this to another ham  
who found the radio had problems when it was received.  The other ham  
opened up the radio, and found a ribbon cable which goes from one part  
of the radio to the other, was loose, and missing a small plastic  
connector which holds it in place.  When the ribbon cable was moved to  
the right place, the radio worked perfectly.  The other ham broke the  
cable, and then tried to 'fix it' and the radio no longer turns on.

I don't want to deal with this anymore, and would prefer to sell it as- 
is NOT WORKING.  I'll sell the entire package only for $110 shipped.   
This is good for parts, or perhaps you can repair it. Again, please  
respond off the list.
