        I was very disappointed to see an ad for radio mart on e-ham today.http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php/topic,82244.15.html  I am writing the webmaster with my objections. I don't understand why he isn't allowed to post in the forums,but he can advertise?

I don't understand how the fraud squad keeps driving by his house and not stopping with guns drawn, but apparently there are not enough folks getting after the postal inspectors and local yokels.

I too am kind of shocked that eham would let this crook advertize here .....?

For those of you who did not see this one yet this poor fellow from the UK was so upset with radio-mart he posted a U-Tube video of what he thought he ordered and what he was actually sent. ( how to spot a counterfeit Icom microphone ). See :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T3jn-YudJI

If you go to the radio-mart web site you can see :  http://www.radio-mart.net/Yeticom-Optima.html

Radio-mart clearly states the one he is selling is a "Japan" model and not the cheap "Chinese" version, Vastly Superior he says. If you look at his picture of the rear of the mic you can see the word "Japan" clearly on the back. Now watch the u-tube video and see what radio-mart sent him ( there is no "Japan" on the back )

When I spoke to Icom they told me if the mic did not say either Japan or China on the back and was unmarked it is a COUNTERFEIT product and does not come from Icom.

I find it interesting that this is not the first time radio-mart has been accused of selling counterfeit products. See :  http://www.amazon.com/gp/aag/main?ie=UTF8&asin=&isAmazonFulfilled=&isCBA=&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&orderID=&seller=A3QII02QYZ1XLB

If you click on "see all feedback" and read for a few pages you will find two other different people that have accused him of selling counterfeit Sennheiser  headphones and demanding their money back.

This should have probably been posted in the "Site Talk" forum.  You'd get noticed by the moderators there--and would have gotten an answer by now.

               It's been posted over there now. Thanks for the suggestion.
