    Their email DISTRO is very heavy on spam. They advertise on FB as well. I almost entered one of their contests and, after reading their TOS and other disclaimers, immediately stopped my application. I'm honestly speechless as to why the site owner and moderators would allow this to be posted on their homepage unless there is some financial incentive to do so.

    Well at least it takes up space on my QRZ, better than another wannabe ham celeb trolling for clicks :mad:

    You know what I'm talking about:

    'Is the IC-7610 the BEST RIG EVER?????'
    'Should antenna tuners be BANNED????'
    'Why ICOM is the worst company EVER'
    'FT8 isn't true communication'
    'CW should be banned'
    'Bring back CW testing'

    (then insert obligatory goofy face and point off oddly into space, link to a podcast or video)

    Keep up the ham biz bashing and soon you won't have any ham businesses to buy from.

    Do you honestly think the closing of Universal Radio was solely "retirement" based? I also stated I was closing due to retirement. But everyone knows it's a supply chain/logistics problem. Throw in a scarcity of chips - and it won't be long and we'll be homebrewing our own stuff once again.

    Wiping spewed coffee off the Acer monitor. Your post was spot on and well worth the clean up effort!

    It's not bashing of ham businesses proper, but more how some conduct their businesses - including advertising methods. Many of us lament the demise of quality businesses that have fallen by the wayside.

    That would certainly weed out a lot of pretenders.
