Group buy of HX850S HAND HELD VHF GPS

I'm looking to put together a group buy of the STANDARD HX850S VHF HAND HELD DSC WITH GPS. We're talking separate shipping and maybe getting 10% or 20% off.
I found it at this place for $198.99. And their shipping was inexpensive too.

(I checked the price at one of my other favorite forums the price is $18 more, otherwise I'd get it there.)
If you are interested in this opportunity to get a group discount on a very good handheld that has built-in GPS, please reply with "I'm interested". I'll use the numbers we get to call them

Maybe if we get a group order together, they will give us a discount.

We'd call them and get them shipped to the different locations where we are. 10% off would be about $20 savings.

I'm interested in getting one. Anyone else?

I'm interested but only if I can get it for less that $180 plus shipping. I've found local suppliers that will sell for 208$ retail. I also saw a few when they first came out on e-bay where they sold for $189. so I'm thinking the mark up is astronomical. These are probably about 40% less in bulk.

I really think this would go easier if you did this. That web site has a few tools that can help organize such a deal.

I've never been there. That opens up lots of possibilities for our sailing community. If you are a member, do you want to set it up. (Otherwise I'll need to research it a bit.)
