The owner operator of Autek Research is SK. He passed away several years ago after a long illness so anyone having issues with Autek that resulted in being not dealt with or incoherent or rude phone calls or faulty equipment know that you were dealing with someone in the varying stages of a slow cancer death. I just bought out his test equipment and station from his daughter and after some research on what he was building at the time of his passing may buy out what he had leftover in production units and finish those units out, maybe. Autek was for the most part a one man operation being run out of his QTH with one helper from time to time. I am at the moment semi retired and am not sure that I want to take on the work and expense of reviving this business. At this point no sales, repairs or tech info is being offered by Autek research so this company should be considered defunked.
