The third list of hams

I'm sure we all keep lists of hams that are good guys to deal with, and another list of people to avoid. But I have a third list I started some time back. Its a list of good hams, but poor communicators. Now before you guys start flaming me let me explain. When I was first licensed some 20 years ago...

I think you guys need to follow the rest of the new world and STOP using UPS. USPS only asks that it is properly packed, no definite of "proper" has ever come to the surface. I use USPS Priority Mail at every opportunity. In the past 5 years, no damage ever noted. One lost package, they fell over th...

Where have our manners gone?

I'm sure I'm not alone; You respond to an ad with a question or an offer, and never get an answer back. You sell something, advise the buyer when you shipped, and never get a courtesy email that it arrived. Where have the manners gone among hams? Is common courtesy not an "in thing" anymore? It take...

Ham Radio and QTH is no longer fun

After having yet another deal go sour because of a dishonest ham, I am of the opinion we are better off just buying new stuff. It used to be there was honor among amateurs, but today it seems that has gone by the wayside. Oh sure, there are some very honest hams to deal with, I don't mean to take a...

Jerry Hensley, KF4UJA

What can I possibly say about this guy? I bought an amplifier from Jerry, this is what I think about this transaction. The pictures he sends are the exact item your going to get. He is fast on email responses, a great communicator. The amplifier I received was EXACTLY as he represented it to be. He ...

Just when I think I understand how this works

Guys, I'm kind of a newbie, I guess. I've only been doing this internet swapping stuff for 18 years. I thought I figured out just about everything. But today I was sitting back on my haunches reading the ads and whammo!!! I read a ad that says, "Payment by Paypal only!" Now I admit, I don't like Pay...

Bad Deal, WB7OKN, Stan Hansen

Based in part on the fine feedback listed here, I bought a radio from Stan Hansen, WB7OKN. His advertised tag of guaranteed items was also a consideration. I received the receiver and it was as advertised, and it worked as it should. Within 24 hours the AC adapter failed mechanically, not electrical...

Email considerations

I am quite sure this subject has appeared here before, but I believe it is time for a re-run. One of the most frustrating times after responding to a posting, is waiting for a response. I fully realize people don't normally sit around their computer waiting to see if anyone sends them an email. Howe...
