I own a number of Array Solution products and in my opinion the quality is
excellent. Jay also does a great job of supporting his products. I had a
Stackmaster that had some relay problems, although I could see nothing wrong
by eye.. This box was involved in a lightning strike and it was over a year
old. Jay suggested various remedies and non worked. I sent him the box and
he replaced every relay and the PC board for no charge. Once I called to
order an UNUN for my shortened 160m vertical and he suggested using a
hairpin coil instead to match the impedance. I definitely don't feel that
Jay is ripping hams off.

ONE more time
Look guys, LETS PUT THIS RELAY STUFF TO REST.
Those relays on my website are 10KW CW high voltage relays, and they are
$45.00 these are NOT the 5 KW CW RatPak replacement relays which we sell for
$16.00 each, if I have to sell one. The RatPak is warranted for life,
except for lightning damage, which rarely happens with it since it has
protection and is in a full metal box.
To the idiot that said I am ripping hams off, your wrong, you have no idea
how much free advice I give out. Try finding a relay like this in the
general purpose relay section of mouser.com. Then modify it to look work
like this and still you won't have the performance!
