Yep.  A few years ago, I put my maximum proxy bid on a Racal receiver.  Nobody
beat my bid after a week.  The seller told me he figured my high initial bid
scared others away.  At least they didn't come around for the last-minute
feeding frenzy.

Nice radio, too.  I plead seniority on the model number (6217?), but it's the
transistor Wadley-Loop model with the odometer style freq readouts and purely
analog tuning, and only a couple inches high in rack-mount.  Sits under my
RA-17C.
