MTC (Main Trading Company) in Paris, Texas is wonderful in my view.  Always helpful.  Owners (Richard and Christie) are always cheerful. I believe them to be an honest company.   No financial connection from me - just a happy customer many times.  Richard will not be undersold.

I have purchased a ton of stuff from MTC.    Every dealer should operate like they do.  I look there first for what ever I need.

MTC is my go-to store these days!!  I got a fair deal on a trade I did for an ID-880H so I'm going back to them to purchase another via the trade route!

Never had any luck with them.  Emailed them several times (as I cannot call from work) about something they either have or I inquired about.  Never a response.  So, I wrote them off.  It wasn't a one time thing but multiple times.  Not interested in my business.  That is okay.  Cheerio.

 I never heard of MTC but I did a search for them to see what they had to offer. Wow, what a catalog, they have just about everything a radio guy would want. I really like their selection of the items that they have, I will have to give them a try one of these days. Looks good to me.

I have never done business with them but they seem to have a decent little store.  I see that you are only about 40 miles from them, which anyone who has ever been to that part of the country knows is just up the road. Grin  So next time you see Richard tell him I got a deal on an IC-7610 for $2500.00, ask him if he will match it. Wink

I have tried multiple times to sign up for their newsletter.  No response.

Gotta add my thoughts on MTC. Good company and honest people. I recently bought a used radio from them. It was shipped quickly and well packaged- but the telling point was when it was hooked up and had low output.
 I called MTC,  and was assured they would make things right. Since I wanted to see the place anyway, a friend and fellow ham and I drove down and delivered the defective radio in person. No questions, no problems, they offered me my choice of remedies- refund, exchange on another rig, all I had to do was say the word.
While I was disappointed that the radio I had purchased was defective, things happen. For me, the service and effort to make the situation right spoke more than the issue. I'll have zero issues buying from them again, and intend to keep an eye on their inventory to see if they get another radio that will meet my needs. When they do, I'll be glad to be a customer again.

I really can't fathom people/businesses that don't do email. I prefer it over the telephone by a large margin. I tried to deal with a ham club via email and could not get answers, I mean absolutely no answers unless I cc'd the president of the club. Why list an email address that one refuses to use?

They also list stuff on Ebay, which I sent a question about their item, and again, no response.  Period. So, deleted them (item) from my watch list.  Don't understand why put stuff on Ebay and can't take a moment to answer simple questions.  Wierd way to do business I suppose.  Glad other folks had good experiences.

Richard is a good guy.  I'd trust him with anything.

He's fair and honest.  Email is no way to conduct business.  You get what he says on his web site.  If he finds out he didn't do something right, he'll make it right.  And if you do something dishonest with him, he takes the financial hit and you get put on his naughty list.  And he shares his naughty list with other ham radio businesses.

He took a job selling trailers about a year ago to get some additional family benefits.  And he considered dropping MTC as a business.  But he keeps at it.  And he's expanding it. 

I don't try to sell my excess ham gear at hamfests anymore.  There are some pretty obnoxious hams out there who try to take advantage of everyone trying to sell something.  Richard knows how to deal with them by saying what it is on his web site.  If you decide to buy it or bid on it and win the bid, he'll send it to you.  If it's not what he said it is, he'll make it right.  That's the value he adds to being a ham radio dealer.  I bring my excess ham gear to him and accept what ever he offers for it with out any hint of haggling.  I accept his first offer, every time, because he's got to make some money on it and he knows how to move ham gear.

Richard is a good guy.  I'd trust him with anything.
