General Equipment Sales Policies

One thing that frequency happen in the community is that family members of departed hams contact SPARC to ask for assistance in selling the equipment. If you are looking for help, first, we are sorry for your loss. No doubt the amount of equipment collected over many years in Ham Radio can be considerable. SPARC is glad to help as this is one of the ways we help fund activities in the club. That being said, we do have some general policies regarding selling equipment. As this takes a considerable volunteer effort to inventory, transport to various swap meets, price and in some cases, test the equipment to ensure it is working, SPARC came up with a general fee schedule based on a percentage of the sale price. Please review the different levels and contact us to assist with selling the estate.
