I'm curious how many PSR-500s have been built/sold. Anyone think it's a good idea to list our serial numbers in a "running list" to gain insight into this and perhaps as a theft deterrent/recovery mechanism?
I believe I had seen something similar on Rich Wells' site years ago in the form of "owners clubs" for various radios... The serial number of my PSR-500 is on record with both GRE and my dealer. Defaced serial numbers basically render a radio worthless in terms of resale/repair. So what's the risk?
EDIT: If someone's hawking a stolen radio at, for instance, a hamfest, I'd like to know RR members might recognize it by its serial number.
EDIT: OT: I'm afraid your signature is a bit out-of-date.
