TOTALLY the opposite here. I get MANY Fed EX deliveries weekly that require a signature. If I am not home I call 1-800-GOFEDEX. I can schedule another delivery date I will be home or they cn reroute the delivery for the next day to an alternate delievry site where I will be. NEVER had a problem with...

UPS AND ANYONE AFFILIATED WITH THEM ARE MORONS. They will destroy a package no matter how well it is packed and refuse to pay. I HAVE NEVER NEVER COLLECTED ON A CLAIM FROM THEM. BIGGEST RIP OFF COMPANY ON THE PLANET.

UPS is run by a bunch of MORONS, there service sucks and they can destroy you shipment with neglect and deny any claim. They suck. Use Fed EX and have an account with them!

I HAVE NEVER (REPEAT NEVER) COLLECTED ON ANY CLAIM WITH UPS. They give the same old excuse all the time. Not packed well enough. They are the worst shipper going.

I spoke with Mori off list. Unfortunately the price he paid for the amp was too high for me and I won't be buying it. It appears that Mori paid above the "going rate" for the amp thinking he would get the power the seller indicated. He is not seeing it and the seeler claims he does. There is a lesso...

I might be able to make this right between both parties, If the amp works OK and Mori does not want it because it does not put out the power he wants I'll buy it from him for what he paid if it is in my price range. He has not complained about the condition, only the power. That does not bother me. ...

Well, there are other facts to consider. I have owned about a dozen of these LK-500 amps and although with 100 watts of drive I have never seen much more than 1500 watts output I wouldn't say it was impossible to reach 1800 watts output with MORE than 100 watts drive. Some solid state radios have sp...

Mori, you do not say what amplifier you bought from this guy. He may not be lying. He may very well be convinced by his hi swr antenna and whacked out CB meter that is telling him some crazy power output. In my years I have met MANY hams who have produced laughable output powers of many different am...

Although KA9MOT pointed the finger at me one time over a deal I compalined about, I think I have to be sympathetic with him on this case. A reason why lots of EBAY sellers won't ship out of the US is because although our postal system has it's faults it is better than most overseas. ESPECIALLY when ...

I recently bought an amplifier that Dave had here on QTH. We decided I was to pick up the amp instead of shipping it. Dave was kind enough to drive quite a significant distance to meet me for the pick up. That was very kind and helpful of him to do. Very nice fellow indeed. Lou

Hi, There is no doubt that with the high voltage in the SSB mode, the PS gets a bigger surge on start up. Over the years your circuit breakers in the amp have weakened or the CB in you house panel whichever is tripping. This is called fatigue. If you change to a new CB, the problem should go away. A...
