Hi Everyone,

One of my Officers found a radio in a pawn shop, the pawner has some
suspicious pawns and he is not a licensed radio operator. The radio is
a Yaesu FT-817 QRP Transceiver, the serial is 0N150301. All the 0s in
the serial are numbers not o as in ocean. Could you ask them to see if
one of these radios was stolen during October? We are trying to check
with Yaesu to see if they can locate whom they sold the radio to.

Please contact me off line if this might be yours....
Thanks Julie
