Good Grief, you guys!

It's a small business.   It's going through a transition, and it  
inventory requirements going into Dayton.    Big whoop.  You could do  

We've seen the response of the guy running it, and playing catch-up.
He was candid about the situation.

Why use the word "beware"?    Be aware of the situation, sure... but  
That suggests something nefarious and dangerous, NEITHER of which  

Do you wonder why small ham vendors don't last?

Do you wonder why MFJ offers low-cost stuff... some would say junk?

We are a small and specialized marketplace.   And we're cheap.
Why would anyone in their right mind invest in a product for this  
Certainly anyone observing this thread would be encouraged to look  

In the immortal words of Pogo,  "We have met the enemy, and they is us."

It's only a matter of time before we see one or more of the big 3  
withdraw from the market.
