Custom/Special Cables  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
When I needed a special cable for my shack, I turned to Phil Parrish (OTAC). After a brief email exchange and phone call, he confirmed exactly what was needed/requested. Shortly there after I received my new cables and they were perfect.
I highly recommend Phil to make your special need cables.!!!

Fantastic  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Phil at On The Air Communications does a fantastic job making adapter cables! There's not enough space here to talk about the quality work that he does. Great service, communication, and economically priced. Look no further than 'On The Air Communications' for your cable needs.

Great Service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I placed an order with Phil via e-mail. He called me the next day and asked a few questions about the cable I needed. I received the cable in a timely manner. The cable works great. I highly recommend Phil.

Great product, prompt service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is the second time I've used Phil. As before, terrific service, great product, and quick delivery. Never a problem with his cables. The on-line payment and ordering process through PayPal is slick and Phil is very responsive, even over a weekend. Don't hesitate to order.

Quality & Price = A++  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
OK, a cable is a cable, right? Not so much. I needed a cable for a Signalink interface to a Yaesu MKV. Sure, I could have bought it from the manufacturer or a number of retailers. But after reading all the "5" reviews on eHam, I had confidence it was going to be "one and done" with Phil. I received the cable a few days after ordering. The supplied cable was obvious first class as far as materials and construction. Of course it worked perfectly.

Phil's prices are very reasonable, and lower than any other reliable source that I could find.
Maybe cables are pretty boring; until they don't work. A cable from On the Air Communications, is just another item in my life I don't have to worry about.

Phil is first class  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I phoned Phil due to being recommended by the people at Elecraft. I had purchased a 500 watt linear along with the tuner. I had also purchased a new Yaeseu 991, to use with the amp, as a portable or backup station. Phil not only designed and built the cables I needed, but stayed on the phone, to make sure that everything worked. Talk about customer service, Phil has got it. Will definitely order again, as soon as the new Icom comes out.

The Best  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Phil Parrish makes great cables and his customer service is excellent. I have three of his cables and they are well made and of very high quality. You can't go wrong buying from Phil, quality all the way.

GREAT SERVICE!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased an Elecraft KPA500 amplifier for my Kenwood TS590 along with a PTT cable to key it from a ham on ebay. The cable was allegedly "guaranteed" to work... well it did not!

I took it apart and it was wired incorrectly and destroyed it,figuring it out.

Dissapointed, I called Elecraft to ask their advice and they unhesitatingly referred me to Phil Parrish - W4AIN
of On The Air Communications.

I called him up, explained the situation. He said for now just wire an RCA plug with a PTT switch , plug it into the PTT jack on the KPA500 and key that when I keyed the microphone. YAY! I could use my new amplifier immediately!

He said he'd get me a working cable out that day by Priority mail.

He did. It worked and the quality of service, the personal touch, and the quality of the cable itself were from a time most of us only remember.

Call Phil for any ham cable need. I was more than satisfied!

Great Service/Great Cable  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I needed a cable for Yaesu FT950 to Elecraft KPA-500 amp. Contacted Phil and had a timely response with an invoice which ended up being a very smooth ordering/payment system. Cable came promptly via First Class USPS. I am very impressed.
