    Eham.net Website Reviews.

    I have just experienced a rejection or non reply to a Equipment Review which I submitted to the Review Pages Of The Eham.net website.
    My review was not added.
    This I do not comprehende. My website donations are up to date on this webpage.

    Have you experienced the similar from this Eham.net website or others (?)

    You do know this is QRZ and not eHam.com, right?

    You're far more likely to get a response there regarding their policies than at QRZ.com

    I'm sure they have a "community help" sort of forum for asking them about their policies... most forum sites have such

    What Dave said...

    Once upon a time, I used to post there and hang out but their uneven moderation and allowance of "screen names" eventually made me quit. Haven't been back in years.

    Ever since I found faked reviews on equipment I stopped reading eHam.

    eHam told me how it was faked, but had no response to how they would prevent it in the future.

    I contacted the operators listed as the author of the review, to see if they could help, the product was not working for me at all. They had posted 5 star reviews, of course, so I figured I was the problem.

    Years ago, they took down my review of the AL-80B because I said it wasn’t ideal for MARS because the input coils had to be retuned for out-of-band frequencies, which then made it not work on ham bands.

    I thought potential buyers should know that, especially when the Ameritech website was claiming it was great for MARS.

    I log into eham every day to read some of the postings. Many of the hams on QRZ also post on eham. Occasionally, I post. But I don't bother with anything other than the forums. The overall site is a little clumsy, but I have found a way around that. I found a quick and easy way to display the forums only and nothing else. In the end, it's just another ham site. A ad blocker really helps clean up the site.

    There have been some complaints on eham about bounced email or no response. However, recently N2MG (one of the eham admins) responded that he receives email at "webmaster@eham.net". You may want to try that address.

    eham is fairly strict about it's equipment reviews. They want the review to be strictly about the equipment. Nothing more. If you try to talk about the manufacturer or customer service, the review will be rejected. And, it makes no difference whether you donate or not. You can argue about this all day, but it's their site and their rules. I just ignore everything but the forums.
