The owner of Ten Tech, etc., made some "not so complementary" comments 
concerning people asking questions about the status of Ten Tech, etc., on  Those comments stirred up a firestorm on the site.

Hi Joe,

Most of what I know came from the Ten Tec website, which, I think, is 
owned by the current Alpha owner, Mike Dishop.  Here's their website.

As I understand it, they have been building 9500s and 8406s in CO, and 
at least one of their key employees (Glen, down remember his call) is 
working there.  They are repairing Alpha products there, and Ten Tec in 
OH.  Array Solutions is also repairing Alpha amps.

They're operating on a shoestring, with no telephone contact, only 
email.  AFAIK, they're not currently building Ten Tec ham gear, but are 
producing commercial products, which pays the bills for the rest of 
their operations.

I recently bought a pair of 87As from a local friend. Both are working 
fine.  I almost bought an 89 before the second 87A became available, but 
it came with a problem, so I passed on it. The owner found a good repair 
for it (don't think I heard who).
