When it arrived via UPS, the driver said he did not take cash, but would take a money order, and he would bring it back next day. So I have a money order, made out to R...

atas1120-120A

They look the same but the 120A has a seal where the rods enters the antenna....suspose to help? keep out water, and is the later mdl. The 120 will fill up with water after a few rain showers, however, a dab of coax seal will help.

To WA4CCH, Chuck. Chuck, the address I sent the MO to is not the same as listed in FCC database. It went to 6106 Pathfinder Rd Riverside, CA 92504. This may be his work address. I hope he is blocked from using QTH.COM in the future, we do not need people like this on here.
