    Looks like I am on the short end of the settlement today. I have requested a schedule for the balance of my refund. I am $3,995.00 short of a full refund.

    I ordered mine when I was in Dayton in 2014. It was not this past 'fest. I think Bob Hardie was the guy I worked with at the time; who-ever was working their booth at the time. The only time I've talked with Rachel was when my amp developed a display problem and she put me in contact with KJ5Y who does the repairs.

    I am going to try to close this saga tomorrow with the support of my credit card company. I think we have a good working agreement with Rachel that will resolve our issues. I want everyone to have good holiday! Maybe I can order myself a solid state amp for Christmas.

    SPE appears to be a small company with limited capacity to fill orders. Too bad they are not located in USA. I talked to RF Concepts (Alpha) about building a solid state amp but they had no interest. Will they go out of business when tubes are no longer available? LOL I hope Ten Tec's new owner brings back a Titan 2.5 kA solid state Amplifier. USA USA USA!!!

    What you are dealing with is the European mindset of employment.
    Here in the USA a company can hire and casually get rid of workers when they are not needed.
    This is not quite true with respect to Europe. Workers just cannot be let go, in addition companies there are loath to hire workers because in some countries like France, workers have their jobs for life. Yes workers can be fired like bringing a gun to work and shoot fellow employees. [dark humor ]
    A company would rather have a backlog of orders that keeps everybody busy rather than having a larger labor force with the prospect of idle workers.

    Then there might be problems with the supply chain with their suppliers and a similar mindset.
    background: Though retired I worked for a French company for 10.5 years. Before that I worked on equipment that came from Australia.
