First I want to start by saying that I do not work for UPS, and I have no relatives or friends that do. I find UPS to be the best in shipping for me. I have come home from work and found a package on my back deck covered with plastic when it was raining. I even received a phone call from their termi...

I have to say that I see nothing wrong with someone trying to make some extra money selling used radio's. If there are no bad reports on their sales of the equipment why not buy from them if they have what you want and you are willing to pay their price. There are some very good people out there tha...

KG4LQD now K4NOL

I just found out that KG4LQD (Ken) that sent me a bad power supply now has a new call as of September 26th.
QRZ.com shows his call is now K4NOL.
He sent me a deffective Astron VS-50M power supply so I still say, if you deal with him, beware.

Well everyone this will be my last reply on this power supply and here's why. I opened up the supply again and took a detailed look at everything. The board is mounted upside down so I removed it and saw that one resistor had a wire soldered to it (and a poor job at that) and something was cut off f...

I mite not know a lot about this power supply but I know enough to turn the knob on the front of it that says amp adjust. With that adjustment turned all the way to max (clockwise) I only get 10 amps. Turning it back takes it down to zero amps. Measuring and setting voltage (13.8) I used a digital v...

KB9VXQ, I guess I should have put the reply about what radio's I connected the supply to here but I sent an e-mail direct to the sender. I hooked the supply first up to my Icom IC-V8000. 75 watt 2meter radio that draws 15 amps. Keyed the radio and only showed 23 watts out and supply showed 10 amps. ...

KG4LQD Ken, traded bad power supply

I made a deal with Ken (KG4LQD). He sent me an Astron VS-50M power supply that he said looks good and works great. When I received the power supply I hooked it up to my radio and found out that it only will put out 10 amps max, nothing more. It is rated at 50 amps surge, 40 amps continuous. The box ...

W9CSR - Ralph, great to do business with

Ralph (W9CSR) is a person good for his word. I received an Icom 746 from him and it is just like he said it was. In great condition and works perfect. He packed it very good in double box and shipped on time.
I would deal again with him any time.

Go to QRZ.com and check this guys bio. From what he said in the e-mail he sent Scott it does not sound like a holy man to me. I guess when he does not get what he wants his true colors show through.

The search feature does not work all the time, I have tried it. All I new was the persons call, I went to search, entered the call and nothing came back. Then I was going thru some of the pages on the feed back forum and found postings about that person listed under his call.

When you see a call on the list, then you go to the forum and read what is posted. lets say there are four postings about one person, two bad and two good. Then it should be up to the reader to decide good or bad. Isn't that what you do now? If you read the posting and it's only from one person sayi...

I have just seen again a posting of a deal gone bad with Brandon Duke. I'm guessing that the receiver of the deal didn't see the past postings about Brandon. So this is just an idea, could there be just a page that's like an index with only the call letters of the scammers and cheat's? Just a list o...
