Here is a message that I have been reluctant to print. This is not to be
a flaming message or a bad rap against them. They sell a great keyer!!
About a month ago I bought the SUper CMOS Keyer III to replace the the
version II that I gave away to a new ham who wanted to operate code. A
couple of weeks ago I decided to build the kit and start using it. Well
after a couple of hours I did not get it working. I made some calls and
e-mail contacts. I actually got the number for Idiom Press and left a
message. I got a call back from them and was told, "We do not make
mistakes! It was not there problem!" I was surpised. the next statement
was " If I send them the chips they will test them for $5 and $10 to
replace the chip.
So for $55 I have a box of scrap and no keyer! I have only been treated
worse by one customer service rep, but his boss made the situation
better. Idiom Press is only one person with an attitude that surprises
me. I have been thinking of posting his phone number despite his request
not to. I am thinking of writing letters to QST and CQ editors to let
them beware. I am also going to let the designers of the keyer know what
kind of people are selling the keyer!!
So after all of this PLEASE BEWARE of IDIOM PRESS!!!!!!!
