I sincerely hope they get turned around soon. Their products are too 
good to disappear from the amateur market.

Well, that's where I ordered that Delta 240, and I wasn't alone. No, 
his booth wasn't swamped like SteppIR's. However, SteppIR is 
something very unique and out of the ordinary. Conventional yagis 
aren't sexy at trade shows, and due to their size, a seller can't 
really display a full line of merchandise properly without a lot of 
money to spend on booth space.

I think what it really boils down to is Tom needs a seriously good 
businessman to run the organization so that he can concentrate on new 
and improved antenna designs. They need a good public face on that 
company, better customer relations and *definitely* a better Web site!

I'd say if he doesn't sell outright he should hire some good 
marketing help, sack those responsible for customer service, trade a 
tower full of antennas for a modern professionally-designed Website 
and start getting product out the door in good time.
