I'm also enjoying all the feedback since my original post. 

I look at this way; these Rubidiums are probably in the region of $1000 new.
We're getting them for a song. OK, you take the risk of the odd dud, but
that's the way of fleabay. I will let you all know how UK Customs performs
on my shipment if & when it arrives! 

Happy New Year to all Time Nutters out there.

I'm finding this thread a great source of amusement. It's no wonder the
Chinese are eating our lunch. First, intellectual property is an oxymoron to
them. Second, cheating is a way of life; root hog or die.
Third, push the system until it burps, then back off just a little.
Actually, I enjoy low cost, "free" shipping, and direct purchase.
There's no chain of distributors, reps, quotes, wholesalers, etc to deal
with.
OTH, it is caveat emptor, and lots of the stuff is crap. It's kinda like
dope. Remember? know your dealer.
Happy New Year to all of ya!
PS I call all goods going to Canada used Amateur radio equipment.
