You know, Clayton, you may be right on one thing--you got a good deal from Mr. Martyn. BUT... for one thing--that 'deal' was made in person at a public venue. He would be rather foolish to do any shady dealings at Dayton. Knowing how some hams are, chances are that if he did he probably wouldn't have made it back to his home. For another, no matter how 'good' your deals were with RadioMart, other hams deserve to know that that company has a record about shady dealings--and outright deceitful ones as well--that were not made 'in person.' No matter if there are only good apples on the top of the barrel, its the ones beneath the top layer that have to be watched out for--and Mr. Martyn's particular barrel is about a hundred feet high.
At last count there were three or four--maybe a very few more--honest and good deals from RadioMart--BUT dozens upon dozens upon dozens more
of shady, bad and outright deceitful ones.
Now, to get back to that pathetic post you made.....
Well I hope everyone is happy now that W8AMZ is now a SILENT KEY.I posted several months ago that his health was VERY POOR & was causing issues beyond his control but some just kept complaining & running him into the ground! I'm sure it does not change many of your feelings about what you posted but it's for sure Tom is not caring what you post now.I'm happy I have the 160 meter Half Sloper & am happy he was able to assist me on the phone & by email several times until the issues were worked out.Prayers to his family,friends,& employees.RIP Tom
...there was no need for it--AT ALL--for it to be worded the way it was. The plain and simple fact of the matter is that the people who posted here probably weren't aware of the gentleman's very precarious health situation, they were just aware he had health issues--from his site. I'm sure this thread would have been very different if the serious nature of his condition was more widely known--but then again a company would be somewhat foolish to advertize that its proprietor was that ill.
The plain fact is that you and your pompous righteousness acted to shove your foot in your mouth--yet again. Apologies are owed to people here and to Tom's family, sir, by YOU. Have a pleasant day, now.
