Hi Tree.....TT has rather harsh business practicices for sure.  I have used 
them on a number of cases will generally good results.  My biggest gripe is 
that they absolutely will not ship to any address other than what is listed on 
your credit card......they have been burned by CC fraud but this policy is a 
pain for me.  I have local sources for steel and aluminum should you need 
them.  I have 105' of r 25 up at my new QTH near Madras.  Will top off and 
place antenns this week end.  73's de Bravo

This opinion is entirely my own....

Expedition scores should count because everything possible
should be done to encourage expeditions. Aside from the fun
of operating from outside the US, there is no reward for doing
so. Some of us have done it on a shoestring when the money
could have better been spent elsewhere (food, clothing, etc).

This opinion from someone who hasn't belonged to a club
for 5 years but who, in the period 1988-1992, made tens of
thousands of contest contacts from VP2MDC and C6AFQ.
