Having good use out of the hamsticks that I bought from Craig’s k1cra.com ham radio store in the past, I ordered both a 6 and 17 meter hamstick for Parks on the Air and some of my other crazy operating and antenna experiments from Craig’s store again yesterday.
As always, I compare prices with Amazon. Amazon sells MFJ hamsticks while k1cra.com sells Workman brand. Guess its safe to assume both are manufactured in china. A sad reality these days!
Amazon hamsticks were around $12 more than the Workman hamsticks at Craig’s store and, unlike Amazon, no sales tax is charged. So I saved roughly $16 since there were shipping costs. IMHO that is a good saving on 2 items.
In summary, before hunting around for ham radio gear, you may save quite a bit as I did by shopping at k1cra.com.
What is better than supporting a fellow ham and saving $$$ at the same time.
