You don't have Chinese character fonts installed in Windows? :) This was a
Chinese scammer and the people who actually bought from him were in China, too.
So the auction listings were in Chinese. The Emtron auctions were rigged to
appear to come from the UK, but it clearly stated he was in China. That CBer
got what he had coming to him, for wanting to run heat on 11 meters.
Had he bought both of the guy's Emtron amplifiers, however, he would have
gotten a free egg roll.
