Thanks for the insight and update concerning the 259. I am a lot closer to
owning one, now.
Those companies that sell direct and compete with their dealers are asking
for trouble. A good rule of thumb is to do retail business with your local
after making sure that an ethical wholesale-retail distribution system exists.
To avoid undercutting their dealers it is appropriate for MFJ to charge list
retail sales. I have ordered parts directly from MFJ, as the economics do not
make it profitable for dealers I patronize to special order parts without
me for time, shipping and handling. I have been happy with the parts pricing
and service from MFJ for some 6 orders over about 8 years.
Regarding quality control; always room for improvement... ;-)
