N4OND

I emailed the "real" Samuel A. Berrey, from the email address posted on the ZED about the hijacker, no response. I'd think just about anyone "sane" would want to know their "good name" was being sullied by a scammer & maybe eventually open them up to a fraud case? Makes ya wonder, maybe they're in c...

Re: N4OND.BOGUS CALL SIGN

Not on the FCC site, avoid dealing with N4OND. Not defending the call sign "Hijacker", N4OND is listed on the FCC ULS search site & as his QRZ bio states is General Class. His Bio is actually short & sweat, with no deficit in the English language or grammar errors like the Hijacker.... The emails W...

Steve, We are on the edge of the delivery time line. I believe that the majority of hams are still holding off passing judgement.

Every antenna manufacturer lists unrealistic gain claims. All of them. You expected gain from an HT Antenna? You expected Gain from a Stubby HT Antenna?
