Re: {Collins} Cetron 811A Blues and Surplus Sales

Well,  I will ring in here also..  I have dealt with Bob at Surplus Sales
for over 20 years and he is a "Stand Up" guy and so is his business.  There
are always two (at least) sides to any story.  Bob has a huge industrial
surplus and supply business and the "Collins" support work is a very small
part of his business which he maintains as a favor for the collecting
community.  He is very ethical and I know that he cares about not only his
reputation, but his ethical behavior..  So, in that light, see the
possibility of the "two sides" version and let's let the guys directly
involved in this deal with it as they think they should...  

But, let's not start a "bad mouth: job on SSoN or the people involved.  That
will earn you moderation or worse.  That is never allowed on this reflector.

This REALLY caught me of guard, as I've been in this "Collins" thing for
many years ( some of you may know me by my previous call of KA1BAZ) and many
moons ago was part of the Net Control operators for the Sunday net. 
Back when Bud Whitney was in his prime. I'll miss him greatly.

Surplus Sales was a "stand up" company to work with (back in the day) BUT I
guess things have changed?  The 811A's that they are selling MAY say Cetron
on them but I'm of the believe that they just might be "knock offs"??? Just
