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.

My second time ordering with On The Air Communications. Cable quality was 1st rate and Phil Pharish's experience and integrity are a bonus.

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.

Flawless - product & service!  Time owned: more than 12 months
The Friday before beginning my stint as one of the W1AW/6 operators, I decided I needed a custom cable for this operation. I previously had outstanding service dealing with Phil and decided he was the go to person. Around 10:30 PM, I sent an email to Phil from his web site, describing what I wanted. Based on my previous experience, I figured I would receive a reply sometime over the weekend. To my surprise, I received a reply from him a few minutes later stating that my cable could be easily produced along with the price. I requested an invoice which I received a few minutes after that and paid via PayPal. So, I figured the cable would be made early in the week and I could integrate it into the system after I had started the W1AW/6 operation. To my amazement, I received an email at 2:34 AM!!!!! stating that the cable had been assembled, the mailing label was created and it was being shipped. At 2:30 in the morning!!!!!!

I received it on Monday, installed and tested it and everything was ready to go when I started operating the Centennial event.

The assembly rivals any commercial product made anywhere by anyone and the service Phil provides is unmatched by any company, large or small, anywhere. This is the company to purchase from when you need a custom cable, absolutely outstanding!

Cable to Interface FT 857D with Logger Program and Amplifier  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Phil at On The Air Communications prepared a cable for me that allowed me to use a logger program and my Ameritron ALS-600 Amplifier with my Yaesu FT 857D radio at the same time. Phil was very helpful and delivered the product in a reasonable amount of time. He guaranteed my complete satisfaction or my money back. I highly recommend him if you need special interfaces.
