Hey, I was offering Mr. Sommer thousands of dollars of exposure to the
kind of hams who actually may purchase his antennas, and over many years
from a middlin-high contest station. Again, I say, without an installed
base and lots of word of mouth, doesn't matter how good your product is,
no one (very few) will take a chance on it.
Yes, he is a dedicated craftsman, not a salesman. Therein is a potential
failure of a potentially excellent product.
Why do some mfgs. loan their products to big guns and to contest & dx
operations if they do not expect gain from the loan or gift? I want good
products to succeed, including Sommer's if so. Gotta get them out there
in view. de K4VUD/V26V, Charlie.
