My 2 cents' worth...

I have dealt with R&L for many years: in person at their store, in person at hamfests, by phone and by internet. I have always found them to be good people to deal with, and their prices are very fair (usually the cheapest!) I guess you can always run into snags in any business transaction, but gene...

Finally!!

Just so the record is straight, I did finally receive my antenna from Ken Handley on February 12. It arrived in good condition; brand new as had been originally described. Odd, though, that Mr. Handley's e-mails started off very well written using good English, and later became very poorly written u...

Whoa! NZ9R you need to chill! Unless Mr. Palmer overnighted your radio to you, it will take a couple to a few days to arrive, no matter what shipping service was used. I sent a package via USPS last fall from Florida to Texas, and it took 31 days to arrive! Wait a reasonable period of time, then con...

I suppose if you put the suggestion in someone's mind that it is brown they might see it, but it would take an awfully big stretch of the imagination!

Larry WA6DIR

I was looking for a specific radio in excellent condition and placed an ad here on QTH.com. Larry responded, and soon I had exactly what I was looking for. Communication was smooth, and the transaction was flawless. In my book, WA6DIR is a top-notch trader!

Another ham scammer??

In response to Listing #638189 here on QTH.com, I mailed Ken Handley a postal money order for $50 on 12/31/07, for a Comet SBB-5 antenna plus shipping. On January 10 I sent him an email asking if the antenna had been shipped. He responded on January 13 stating that he had been sick with the flu, but...

Also notice that in these type of responses the item in question is never mentioned by name, only as "your item." I also have received these scam responses to items I've listed for sale. Upon receipt of them I head straight for the Delete key!

About N9DVD

Just to update everyone (which I originally promised to do and didn't, sorry!) I did eventually receive a refund from Mr. Granger. He sent it back to me via Paypal in two partial payments, so I did lose some money from the fees Paypal charged me for receiving my refunds from him. Looking back throug...

Recently Ken advertised a very rare Yaesu FT-650 for sale and I was the one fortunate enough to snag it. Ken kept me up-to-date throughout the whole process. The rig arrived very well packed, exactly as described and the manual looks as though no one has ever even opened it! I would definitely do an...

OK, this has been stuck in my craw for awhile. I respond to an ad that has recently been placed (in a couple of cases within minutes of it appearing.)

David, you will have to retake all the exams in order to get your ticket back. All, that is, except the code IF you can show proof of having previously held an Amateur Radio license (except a No-Code Tech.) An old callbook listing will suffice. Then you'll get credit for the code test. You will have...
