If you order one of his antennas, I suggest you ask for the antenna before you pay for it. What a deal I went through with him and finally forced him to refund my money. He is a bad example of a Ham Radio Operator.

Unfortunately, I too had a similar bad experience with Bob Autry

This was about a year ago

In one respect, you were luckier than me

He did not refund any of my money, even though the amount was small

Of course, I'm aware there will be people who will now come forward & defend him citing their positive, good experiences

However, one must always remember, sometimes there are " hits " & sometimes there are " misses ", with the same person , as far as honesty goes

(Sometimes there are some people that do honest deals & then every one-in-a-while, they do not do honest deals) (For some reason) (Same person)

Looks like I am getting better

Guess I am improving I do refunds now.

Now out of the blue comes a guy I have never heard of to write a fiction novel based on a conspiracy theory.

Anyway, just how much small amount of money did I not refund to you and exactly what was it for? I don't remember your call from - how many years ago??

But then again, I guess since I did refund the money to the person who started this thread, therefore I must still be dishonest toward him also in your eyes. Oh that's right, he was one of the good deals or the bad deals, I need clarification, I am confused which one he is.

But never the less, one might also conclude, since even though I am not a company (just a guy building antennas in his backyard) that if you were to check with every major corporation in America who makes something or anywhere else for that matter, they have at multiple times refunded money at some point or other to many individuals and also had to refund money to even many more.

Therefore they must logically fall under your conspiracy theory as well. And they have even had to because it was not possible to deliver the merchandise on a timely basis.

I guess they are all dishonest too, or is it just the ones that take our money and say nothing, deliver nothing, nor do they commmunicate with us at all that are the dishonest ones?

Interesting the straw men we can build up just to tear down to try and make ourselves feel a part of something we really have nothing to do with.

So now we have a conspiracy theory that if anyone anywhere has bad deals and good deals they are ripping people off some of the time but not all of the time.

My personal opinion is, your watching too much Oprah with your wife.

Not sure how someone can force someone to do something they don't already feel they should rightfully do from a distance of Mississippi to Texas, but if you say you forced me then I guess you did, I consider myself 'forced'.

Now you just need to get with all these other guys who are really being ripped off and tell them how you did it so they can force the real scammers into giving them their money back also.

Just think you'd be a real hero to many.
