Bird line section connector alternative:

I was working on some Bird Line sections for 222, 902/3 and 1296 this evening. I found out I was one fitting for the line section short. A quick look at a PL-259 solved the problem. Shorten the pin until the PL-259 screws on the line section, solder the PL-259 to your RG-58 cable including the braid...

I sent the transformer to him as requested. He called me with the cost estament. I said OK. He repaired it, called me with the cos...

N6KP

I think Ted N6KP should be commended for his handling of the situation. I would rather the seller would keep the perspective customers that expressed interest notified when the gear is sold. The other side of this is if the buyer changes his mind he should notify the seller immediately if he has cha...

Guess I didn't make my post clear. Seller delivered to UPS for the new "pack and ship promise" program... Result, they packed it, shipped it and they junked it. The brown truck lives for another day.

UPS "PACK AND SHIP PROMISE" PROGRAM.

Yesterday I received what was once a beautiful Ameritron amplifier. It arrived in a new but badly crumpled up box. The amp was wrapped in two layers of bubble wrap and nicely tossed in a box that was less than full of styrofoam peanuts. First the bad part, it was dropped numerous times. The top beze...

Guys and gals, a hint for you.

When looking at the ads don't let them fool you. Lots of folks put in "no shipping must pick up". They might not be from their listed call area. Case in point, I needed some filter caps and transformer for a power supply I am building. Found a W5 that had exactly what I needed but no shipping. Looke...

Do your home work.

There are some things that you must do before buying. First is the feedback forum on this site. If I find some not so good comments it is a deal breaker for me. Also use the Google search and take time to read every thing. Look this guy over in my suggested places. Would you buy from him based on wh...

I sold Bob some gear. One of the pieces was damaged in shipment. I sent a replacement and all is well. Bob did not make a fuss and commented on the great packing. It was purely the shippers fault. I would deal with Bob anytime. WA6JQV is a great example of the amateur community.

Mouser shipping charges:

I am in total agreement with K4ICL. In my opinion Mouser is charging what they need to stay in business. I too buy a lot from them. Rather than pick on them we could better spend our time writing letters to the government about gasoline and diesel prices. Of course not on this site.

If you buy from me, I am responsible for the packaging and shipping. You can either accept my choice of carrier or I must apologize because we won't be able to deal.
