I realize that while I may have initially been searching for help resolving some bad sales with Dale Kight of kightradio.com his complete lack of responsiveness has led me to believe that I should warn others considering doing business with him.
My experience is documented here:http://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php/topic,91244.0.html

But in short, I bought a Xiegu X1M chinese HF radio from him and never received it and he stopped any and all communication.
I bought some other equipment that did arrive, but in not in working condition-- a Tonfa (similar to BaoFeng) 2meter/70cm handheld from him and received a unit with a defective battery, and I also received a broken/defective 2meter/VHF digital SWR/power meter that wouldn't measure anything.
I've tried contacting him via phone, his web site, email, and public messageboards without any result, and am working with my banks and Visa to try and get my money back.
You can also see that he's had at least a couple of bad experiences documented by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Oklahoma, and a few other things pop up on Google as well.
I would recommend significant caution and skepticism for anyone wishing to do business with him.
Hopefully someone else will start importing the Xiegu X1M or MKII HF radios.
