Here is another one , don't want to drill holes in your dash to mount your radio? K-Mart is the ONLY place that sells "Body Molding Tape". This stuff is like welding metal to plastic PLUS you can POP off if you pry against it with a flat object incase you want to remove the radio. It is double sided...

Not for ham radio BUT here is a great one. Stop at the local auto store and get a jug of Rain-X. Stuff is fabulous, drive in heavy rain, no wipers. Just fill up you wiper washer tank with it...I hardly ever use wipers anymore. Blows people away when they are in the car with me in a rain storm... I g...

Even worse, most Ham Radio stores ship free like HRO. Some people just don't want to take time to research. I see folks asking to "buy" a copy of a manual or service manual and in most cases simply type in Google "TS-430 Service Manual Download" or whatever and you will get 25 places to download it ...

The bottom line is that most people focus on the "bad times" just like the news papers. If the news papers were to use only "good times" they would run out of paper and no one would read it because most people thrive on bad news....

2nd rule of thumb , try fixing it yourself and save a pile of money. Ameritron Amplifiers are extremely easy to fix, they have limited components and all diagrams and troubleshooting help is on line, just Google it. A simple DMM is all you need to fix just about any linear amplifier. If you do not k...

Why do some people lie?

Why do some people lie? Just an example: An Amateur Radio Operator who wanted an item, contacted me thru my web ( www.n4ats.com ) and asked if I would allow his purchase to be sent to me direct from the seller for modifications , then I forward it to the buyer. I agreed as I do that a lot for eBay b...

WX1F , Great point , I have done this not once but twice. It amazed me that the part was not only a duplicate as far as dimentions , but they made it out of stainless instead af a drop forge. I also have had plastic obsolete parts made at a plastics house on several ocasions.
