Re: Huh?

It has taken me a fair amount of my time and more time for the state police and TN attourney General. A state attorney general won't touch something like this - it isn't his job. An A.G.'s job is to defend the state he works for against lawsuits and give legal advice to the governor. The state poli...

Hello, When some of us griped about Radio-Mart's questionable selling practices, there was always another good dozen or so folks who'd get on and say things to the effect of 'I've purchased from Radio-Mart before and let me tell you he's a real straight-up guy. Best deal I ever got. I'd trust him wi...

You got a good deal because Martyn Allison's business m.o. is exactly like that of a drug dealer. Read on... Where I grew up there was this pot seller (and I don't mean cookware pots) notorious for ripping-off buyers - usually high school kids. From what I remember, dozens if not hundreds of victims...

Radio-Mart currently has for sale a Drake SW-8, which he describes a "mint" ,"in the box", and "I do believe it has not been used before." Well, that's funny...the SAME UNIT (s/n 4k12950074) he bought on Ebay recently, left negative feedback and demanded a refund from the seller saying it "doesn't w...

K0BDL good trade

Bruce, K0BDL, responded to a "for trade" ad I placed here. It was a positive experience, a straight-up trade. Bruce isn't a slick-talking Yankee (nor an exiled British con artist), no, Bruce is a good man. Another good trading experience here for me. Thank you.

Re: My Radio-Mart, Martyn Allison vote is "NO"

If I were a psychiatrist I could tell you what's wrong with this guy, but I am not- so, just the facts for you to decide. He's a salesman. To them its all 'part of the game'.

Everyone should follow your example of tolerance & forgiveness when sellers make little 'boo-boos'. After all, its just a sale. http://toolhaus.org/cgi-bin/negs?User=r...

KG8LB, I read your pseudo-legal opinion on my gripe with Radio-Mart. You attempt to sound purely objective but, once the malarkey is aside, I'm left with: a) Too bad sucker -- you shouldn't have accepted his $10 offer. b) Anything goes, its a dog eat dog world out there. Maybe that stuff passes for ...

It isn’t going to harm my case discussing this $10 check thing. I called Martyn on the evening of 4-04-11, to tell him the radio arrived in good shape but without the advertised power supply. We didn’t have an unpleasant or impolite conversation at all — in fact I’d describe Martyn as amusing. But, ...

I say again, please box it back up and let us send in UPS to collect it. And we'll refund you. If not, find something else to do besides complain about a power supply that you could have asked for instead of money. This ain't rocket science, (a.)

Way overpriced with inconsistent feedback .Not someone I would trust with my money.

Well, Mr. Allison of Radio-Mart did make good on the missing wall transformer, via a refund check. Overall I got a well-kept Drake receiver for a decent price, certainly less than the typical Ebay price for same unit.

W9NES Tim DeLong Good Person

I was fortunate to come across a for sale ad, here, listed by W9NES Tim Delong. Even though his price was low, Tim still made sure all aspects of the sale went perfectly. And it did. Tim seems to be a perfectionist. A great guy to speak with on the phone also. I am grateful to have purchased from him.

I imagine that folks who defend a highly criticized person have their reasons. Yet I keep thinking of an old piece of advice that those much wiser have always told me.

"Larry, if enough people criticize you for the same thing, over & over, you may want to stop and actually take a look at it."
