    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello All!
I recently got rid of an 8200 that was in pieces. It was sold on here for parts. That made me dig into my "old Treasures" boxes. I found that I had replaced the broken one with another one about 6 months after the accident of the first. It was probably used for a couple of weeks then put away. All the original items that came with it are still in the box "unused". The manual,the original batteries, the wall wart, the cig-lighter plug, the AM attatchment, the belt clip are all in their original plastic never used. The radio is in mint condition, the light was in the off position as I had last set it so it is still bright as a bulb. I cant believe I forgot about this radio. Anyway, my question is what is a radio in this shape worth these days? I am the original owner.Im not sure I want to sell it but then again, its just sitting in a box. The only thing is obviously the 800 MHZ gap. However, at least you can tune from 800-869 without a problem,unlike ICOM who just deletes the whole entire 800 band. Anyway, as I said, I dont know if I am going to sell it but I would like to know what it is worth.

Just go to Universal radio and price the radio.
If if is truly mint as you say then you should be able to get 75-90% of the current retail price.
