*Conditions of Use - Please read!

    1. VK2CA owns, runs, maintains and pays for this site and as such has 100% control over what does or does not appear on this site at all times.  I wish only to provide a service to my fellow hams and try very hard to be fair, at all times, to everyone whilst doing this.  I WILL NOT engage in any correspondence regarding the administration of this site so DO NOT expect a reply if you email in this regard!

    2. If you have a problem with another buyer/seller etc then apply some Ham spirit amongst yourselves and work it out amicably!  Remember this is a HOBBY!  If you still have a problem.....sorry, but refer Rule 1.

    3. Adverts to purchase amateur transmitting equipment MUST include a valid amateur licence callsign.  Your advert WILL be deleted without notice if this is not included in the text of the advert.

    4. If you do not hold a current Amateur Radio license then you are not permitted to advertise to purchase Amateur Radio (ham) transmitting equipment using this site. Again your advert WILL be deleted without notice if this is the case.

    5. Supply of Non-Compliant radios - (As advised by the ACMA) - Please read carefully! - Adverts deemed to be in breach will be removed immediately and without notice.

      • Supply of non � standard radio communications devices is an offence under Section 160 of the Radio Communications Act 1992, and can attract substantial penalties of 120 penalty units for an individual, or otherwise 1500 penalty units (currently 1 penalty unit = $110). Operation and possession of non-standard radio communications devices are also offences under sections 157 and 158 of the Act. Non standard devices have the potential to cause harmful interference to licensed radio communications services.

      • Amateur Radios that are designed and limited to cover amateur radio bands only do not have to meet Australian standards, however, if the radio covers frequencies, or has been modified to cover frequencies outside of internationally recognised amateur bands, then it must meet the standards for equipment operating in those bands, as well as carry the appropriate regulatory compliance marking. As such, equipment which does not meet these standards is defined as non-standard equipment.

      • Suppliers also have an obligation under section 301 of the Act to ensure that equipment is not supplied to anyone who is not appropriately licensed to operate or possess the device.

        *Note - It was advised by the ACMA that they may take action directly with the individual advertisers that are in breach of the Communications Act in their advertisements!

    6. Adverts are to be for radio related items, or of relevance to the Amateur Radio community (mobile phones etc are NOT amateur radio equipment! Adverts for these types of items will be deleted without notice)

    7. Adverts containing links to items for sale on Ebay or other auction sites are not allowed (why would you pay there when this is FREE?)
