Be as honest fair and
truthful as possible about your experience. Your review is mainly
about how you rate your equipment's performance when it is operating properly according to
the mfg's instructions and whether or not you recommend
it, rather than it's source. However, if you feel that the ham
community needs to know about excellent service of any kind OR poor
service from the supplier, just say so in your review of your equipment.
Give details but limit your comments to the facts.
Only your thoughts about "tangible" "equipment" can be
accepted for reviews at this time.
Tangible equipment is loosely defined as meaning new or
used transceivers, antennas, towers, coaxial cable, tuners, power
supplies, etc that you now own or have used. Various
categories will be added as time progresses and the review numbers
increase. If you submit equipment that is not already categorized by type,
then yours will create a new category if accepted.
freeband related equipment reviews are NOT allowed unless it can be used
on the ham bands legally within the confines of the FCC Part 97

else), but remember, you may be reviewing their "junk" that
happens to now reside with you so it may not be a fair representation of
that particular brand, model, etc if you bought it "as is" and your having
a problem with it. Repair it, then review it. If you have reason to
believe your equipment is in good working order, then please do review it.
Review it for what it was intended and designed.
Try to refrain from comparing it to
non-identical equipment with different
specifications. This is like an apple orange comparison. Don't
compare a vertical antenna with a horizontal antenna you may have used in
the past. Apples to apples, oranges to oranges.
