One well placed hatchet chop would relieve your problem for a while. Two would be better. But then there is no ham radio at all in jail. Too bad the originations we support with out money turn a deaf ear when we need some help. Even worse when the other local hams wont help. Consider getting attorne...

Re: A rant

I know just what you are talking about, Bill. Three months ago I listed a Dentron antenna tuner and got a guy in TN that called three times to talk about it. Last call he said he wanted to buy it and was sending the money. Still waiting for the money but if it ever gets here I will send it back ... ...

A big dummy load at the base of a vertical.
What is new about that?

I would think a tuner like the AH-3 mounted at the base of a vertical work much
better.

What is with the double posting of items?

Why do I see so many HF amps for sale posted in the HF radio classification? They are also posted in the HF amplifier section so the posters do know that there is a PROPER classification for those items. Are they afraid someone looking for an HF amplifier will not look there for one? How about keepi...

Take your MO stub to the post office and cancel the money order.
That will either get you a refund or the information that it has been cashed in.

Re: Here comes one....

It is true fellas, a mono band reciever is much more sensitive than a multi band radio. Compare the cheapest "CB" radio along side your new FT-2000 or IC-7800 on an A/B switch and you will see the el cheapo "toy" radio has a better reciever on 10 or 11 meters. No brag here ... that is just the way i...

Why is it that the Yeasu FT-2000 is about the only current production radio being offered for sale as used at hamfests.
I have seen several of them sitting the table but no currently produced Kenwood or Icom radios.
