This section of the site is often used to complain about various companies who have given poor service. So, since we are supposed to be nice to each other over Christmas let's list the companies and organizations that have given us great service. I'll start the list off:


Coilcraft     www.coilcraft.com     A wide range of RF and power supply inductors

Cumbria Designs     www.cumbriadesigns.co.uk     A small UK company with some interesting kits

Mouser     www.mouser.com     Spectacular service and an amazing range of components

Powerwerx     www.powerwerx.com     Good for Powerpoles and cables

Proto Advantage    www.proto-advantage.com/store     Adapters for surface mount components

Revolution Education     www.picaxe.com     Producers of the programmable PICAXE chips


Who's going to continue the list?

We can add DX Engineering to the list of great companies for us to obtain ham radio related items.  I ordered pre-made grounding braid straps and grounding braid from DX Engineering, during the period they were closed for the holiday.  All items arrived today, professionally boxed, and the items exceeded all expectations.

In addition to KB3IFH, Balun Designs, DXE, and Elecraft, I'll nominate the Radioware & Radio Bookstore: http://www.radio-ware.com/ and N6BT Antennas: http://www.n6bt.com/

I've experienced excellent service from all of these companies in recent months.
