Re: [wsjtgroup] Caveat emptor or my N-connector purchase CORRECTION
- Hey guys,
It's me again. I need to correct something I posted earlier.
CORRECTION: In my previous post (quoted below) I stated that Bill at wb0w.com
charged me more than double their advertised price. I was mistaken. They
charged me NEARLY double. They advertised $28.00 for a 10-pack, but charged me
$49.50 per 10-pack. Obviously, that is not double. Nevertheless, they charged
me NEARLY double (176%). I felt obligated to clarify that. Sorry for any
confusion caused by my previous statement.
