WB0X Frank Royal-good honest person.

I bought a tower from Frank and I drove from North Carolina to Florida to his QTH to pick it up. He gave me a break on the price and invited my wife and I into his home for refreshments due to the hot weather. He also did a big part of loading the tower in my trailer because I have a physical impair...

It's just scarey these days with companies going out of business overnight. I hope I'm just paranoid. 8)

Has anyone had contact with Technical Specialist LLC lately?

I was wondering because I sent a FT-101 to them for repair on 5/25/11 and have not heard anything from them. I know that's not a long time but when you call their voice mail is full and they don't answer E-Mails either. No word of vacation or they will be out of the shop for awhile on their website....

He is very professional and a top notch technician. I would not hesitate to use his services again should I need them. Thank you again Al for taking ca...

Be careful on QTH too...

I recently went through with a deal where I traded a HF rig for some vintage equipment. The transmitter, D-104, VFO-which was said to only need to be wired with octal plug, receiver, and 6 ft rg-58 jumper. The radio I traded was plug and play-nothing needed and I thought that was what I was getting ...

I could swear that I have heard that name somewhere. My first instinct says that it wasn't a good encounter. I wouldn't deal with someone without a valid call but that's just me. :?

On top of that just think what it does to the ham who has been plagerized. No one will want to trust you and it will take a long time to build your good name back up if ever. Knock on wood (hitting my head) I haven't been scammed yet but it could happen. I'm very careful. It almost makes you not wan...

Whoa there Cheif, no one accused you of anything! Just because you pay with a Postal Money Order doen't make you a crook or dishonest or anything like that. Pay with any method you wish, I don't care. Also, hear this xxxxxx- I DON"T BUY ON E-BAY.

I never said that Postal Money Orders are a joke! All I'm saying is that you send someone a Postal Money Order and just as soon as they get it cash it and what you receive is junk or nothing at all. What do you do then? At least PayPal gives you some type of recoursive action. By the way typing in a...

Always use PayPal

Probably 90% of all problems that I see posted here could be avoided by using PayPal. No I do not work for PayPal. Most people are what I call "cheap skates" that don't want to pay the extra for PayPal just to save a few bucks or have to list their financial information with PayPal. The way I view t...
