Czech Morse Key
It is fantastic to relate a story which strengthens your faith in the Amateur Radio fraternity.
On the 01 Dec 12, I placed an order with Mike Bowthorpe G0CVZ ( http://www.czechmorsekeys.co.uk
) for one of his highly rated Czech Morse Keys. Promptly, the next day I received acknowledgement of my payment and that the key had been posted that day.
On the 10 Dec 12 the mail man arrived on the doorstep with a registered package, it was my key. Only 10 days from Peterborough, UK to Richmond, Australia. However, despite the key being well packaged, parts had been damaged in transit. I email Mike explaining the situation and included a few pictures of the damage and asked how I could have the key replaced, fully expecting to have to pay for at least postage if not a little more.
The emails followed something along these lines:
Sorry to hear about the key I will send another today.
I am happy to return this key to you if you wish or pay whatever you deem to be a fair price for the replacement key.
No need to return the key, you will have some spares.
The key was shipped today 10th Dec 2012 UK PO Ref: RU 1227…….
Now that is what I call service, the new key arrived today, 24 Dec 12 (Christmas Eve), in pristine condition and at no extra cost. The Czech key lives up to its impressive reviews, lovely to use, will now be my main key.
If any Fists member or other Amateur Radio Op for that matter wishes to invest a few dollars in a new key, Mike G0CVZ is the guy to deal with, his service is outstanding and the key is a real winner.
Many thanks’ Mike, an absolute pleasure doing business with you.
