weeks ago at Dayton. Last I heard was it was supposed to have been
completed on August 10th and shipped out the following week. After
nothing arrived by the 20th, I called, got through and they said
"this week for sure." That's the last I've heard from them. They'
were not answering their phones all last week, and I've called 4
times today, and still no answer. I also sent a few e-mails as well.
I didn't see anything on their Web site about a company-wide vacation
or plant shutdown, and nothing on their answering machine message either.

anybody on-list knows Tom and could find out if everything is OK, or
who at least might know an alternate way to get through to them.
Anybody on-list live near Paso Robles and could take a look and see
if the building's still there <grin>?

the two years they've been up, and I'd much rather have my Delta 240
in the air than a refund, but I'm afraid I may be getting neither if
I can't get hold of them and see what's up.
Tom Schiller, N6BT, has had some recent medical problems and wants
to retire so he has put F12 up for sale. Unofficially it is in the process of
being turned over to the new owner - a fellow TowerTalkian!
The good news is that they'll have better customer support after the
dust settles. I'm sure that there will be an announcement soon. In the
meantime, don't give up quite yet.
