FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1D05)

Q) When may amateur radio operators use their stations to notify other amateurs of the availability of equipment for sale or trade?

A) When the equipment is normally used in an amateur station and such activity is not conducted on a regular basis.

NJ2X Note:
It is common to hear a "swap-and-shop" during the regular course of an amateur radio net.  These can be a great way to pick up amateur radio related gear.  Local nets offer the additional benefit of being able to pick up the item locally and talk to the ham before the purchase.
