Mine has been marked as shipped, as long as I actually receive a scanner for that price I'll be happy.. (Edited the tracking number for privacy)

Glad a lot of people took advantage of this, mine shipped today also! Pretty hard to pass up a P25 scanner for that price. Mike

I think you should get some sort of award. Like post of the year or something. Or maybe an honorary title on here!

According to what I found online, overstock items are generally new unless marked otherwise.
My is marked as shipped, although I didn't get a shipped email. So we shall see if its new

Actually this seems to reinforce that.

Anyone who bought more than 1 should pass 1 along to an RR member (not me).

Agreed, but there's money to be made on these units... I know if I was in such a position, I would be glad to pass one along to a "less-fortunate" member (I am one of the aforementioned members).

If they are anything other than brand new they must indicate so.

My guess is someone goofed in pricing or inputting the price, and because it was a Sunday they didn't catch it.

I could have ordered more but purposely didn't to share the good fortune with fellow hobbyists. I know how unamerican of me. Lol

The description was also weird - "Receives AM/FM and shortwave bands". No mention of listening to police, fire, or EMS. Makes me wonder if the person listing it didn't really know what they had.

Lots of people have helped me over the years on this site, that's the reason I started the thread. Just trying to return the favor in a way. Also checked the UPS site, mine shows a delivery date of 2/13. Really hope everything works out for everybody! Mike

My friend who is a manager at Radio Shack told me that Radio Shack decided that rather than keep marking these units down in the store, they had all the RS stores ship them to a central liquidator who in turn liquidated them for Radio Shack. I'm guessing that's how they ended up on "The Big O".

As for the unlucky ones who missed out on the deal of the year, I'm sure there will be plenty on Ebay soon (at a much higher price than $79.99).
