RADIOGEARPRO.COM ... "pro" is a real misnomer...

Post by KB3RPE » Thu Jun 23, 2011 3:35 pm

My experience was NOT a "good" one....:evil:

Bought an HT antenna that made "gain" claims it didn't come close to.

After many failed attempts at 2 email addresses for the seller & their web claim of "100 guaranteed satisfaction", had to dispute purchase with PayPal..

xxxx, answering Flippin' emails would be "Nice" & then attempt to "satisfy" your customers. So, I hope they "xxxx Off" enough people to have a "Banner Year" in sales........ :wink:

Here's link to product http://www.radiogearpro.com/main/produc ... cts_id=631

I WON dipute (so I guess PP is OK for something HiHi ). Obviously, I won't be purchasing there anymore & as always "caveat emptor".....

Just my 2¢s, your mileage may vary....but I doubt it ...

Every antenna manufacturer lists unrealistic gain claims. All of them. You expected gain from an HT Antenna? You expected Gain from a Stubby HT Antenna?

Antenna theory must not be one of your strong points. And you're an Extra! Amazing!

So you didn't do your homework, and it is this companies fault?

BTW, please tell me how you determined the Gain Claims were false.

Wow aren't you a "Ray of Sunshine", even though "you're only a General"...
...Gee i'm sorry I'm not an Antenna Expert?!! Sorry I don't spend all my free time learning "Antenna Theory"....

Oh well, now I've slung my mud back...so I wonder, why it wasn't fulfilling...Guess it's a personality flaw.....:wink:

However the "jist" of my original post, my MAIN ISSUE with them, wasn't so much the gain claims but was the LACK OF RESPONSE, you know their claim to "100% Satisfaction Guaranteed"... No responses from a seller shows me just how much they really care about buyers, IMNSHO!!!!
Oh well, "Over & out, too much QRN, Roger Roger"...:roll:

Gain over what?

Every antenna has 'gain' over something.
