N2KNC DAVE CRASE

A few days ago I received the quad set of Chinese 572B tubes that I bought from Dave Crase, N2KNC. He listed them here on QTH.com as essentially new, stating that he tried them in his amplifier in place of the stock 811s and removed them after a very few hours becasue they gave no more power than th...

Instead, perhaps the proper term is 'pontificating'.

Time for an update... A telephone call to Yaesu confirms that Andy '...hasn't worked at the Yaesu Tech department for more than two years...' This came as no surprise. Just as what he represented to me when I called him about buying his amplifier, and virtually everything of consequence he has poste...

KB6OPR Bum Deal

I noticed today that Andy' KB6OPR, has moved up to listing some high-end stuff, so i decided it is time to post my one experience with him. A few months ago he listed a 'new in the bag' Mirage 222MHz amplifier for sale here on QTH.com. The $150. price was very good (which should have set off alarm b...

N8MRC asked the 'Forum' to decide, and it appears to have done so. Plenty of criticism of my conduct, and apparently none for N8MRC.

N8MRC--

When reading the emails in his posting, you might notice the gap of several days between my response to N8MRC's query about shipping on May 1st. It is because he 'conveniently' left out his email to me, also on May 1st., where he offered $25. shipped for the coax. I ignored that 'offer', hoping he w...

No, this isn't the deal gone bad. I bought a Mirage C-3012 amplifier from Rick a couple of weeks ago from his listing here on QTH.com.

WA5IKQ DAVE CABLE DEAL

I just received the cables from Dave that I bought as a result of his listing here on QTH.com.

The whole transaction went smooth as glass.

The cables are EXACTLY what I was looking for, and are as described in the listing, etyc.

I would definitely buy from him again!

KD7ACK - Cyrus Mohr Lapine, OR

I recently bought a couple of items from Cyrus for $200. He shipped them to me BEFORE he received my payments. Very nice packing job. Excellent communications. Unlike so many people these days, he is one straight shooter. I would not hesitate to buy from him again.

K7HC--GREAT GUY TO SELL SUMPIN TO !

Just completed another straight forward, lightening fast transaction with Clay. What a great guy to frequent the hallowed halls of QTH.com !

It sure would be nice if there were more like him, and less of the perennial thugs that forever lurk under nearby rocks.

Thanks again, Clay.

WATCH OUT!

A number of years ago I stopped selling stuff to Canadian hams because it was common for them to request, at the last minute, that I enter a nominal amount, or 'free' in the value space on the customs documents. The purpose was to save them $ on sales tax/import duties. In my humble opinion, I was b...

The PayPal 'refund' still hasn't cleared because it appers ERIK has no funds for PayPal to use to make the payment to me.
