    Telecom Boards

    I got some of these boards from my father-in-law and I need to know if they are worth trying to sell. I'm new to the game so I did a research on them (Google an Ebay) but didn't find much info on them. I have lots of questions but I thought I would turn to the pros here to see if you think they are worth the trouble.

    Are you curious about their scrap value or resale value? Either way pictures of the whole boards will help (unless it's just displaying wrong on my phone)

    The pics are showing up fine on my home computer. I curious of the resale value. I'm sure I'd have to have a bunch of these to make any real cash from scrap. The boards are in working condition.

    Looks like scrap. Would help with resale value if you told us what they came out of...

    It appears in your photos that you cut part of some(all) of each board.

    Research each board by googling each number you can find on them. That normally will help you id each then you can figure outif there is a used market for the boards.

    Are these 5-6 boards all that you have so far? If it is then hold onto them for now and do some more reading in the old threads that will help you in the long term.

    One great truth is they will be worth what your chosen buyer is willing to pay. The good news is we have several buyers who are members and are regularly reviewed by others who sell to them. More reading on your part is going to be required. 73, Mike

    first step- remove all the wires and alum heatsinks
    then start saving up boards until you have at least a medium sized boxfull of them.

    you can sell the heatsinks & wires to your local scrapyard.

    while you do that, try to contact ewaste buyers and show them pics of what you have and see who offers the best prices...
    dont forget to take shipping into account.

    Yes this is what they are from. I did researched them and found only 1 or 2 boards for sale on Ebay. One is listed for $149. Unfortunately nothing came up as "sold". I'm going to list them on Ebay to see if I get any looks, if not I'll just hold on to them until I get enough boards to sell to a buyer.

    Already did that which is why I posted in the first place.

    Just posted them on Ebay. If someone buys them great. If not then they get scrapped.
