The Good & The Bad @ Universal

Two days ago I order two little radios I wanted, I paid extra for three
day shipping so I would have it tomorrow.
        They didn't ship it until yesterday so I more then likely won't get it
until Monday, I'll be gone most of next week.
        They called to tell me that the BC245 I have been waiting on was in and I
asked about my extra money for shipping. They gave my money back and I
said Thank You.
        I order the BC245 and they had it in there hand but it won't ship until
"next week" Damn.

Just curious why you chose Universal for the BC245. Aren't there MANY
dealers who sell it? And maybe a lot closer to you?

        I tried a few others and they did the bate a change routine. Told me
Uniden was not making the 245 any more because of the 250. So far
Universal has been nice to me and done what they said they would so I'll
stick with them as long as they keep there prices in line and take care
of there service.

        Going camping east of San Diego this weekend in the mountains, I'll take
my YB 400 and wish I had my BC250.
        The bad thing is gas, it's at $201 today and still going up. My wonderful
pickup gets about 7-9 mpg and I'll drive over 300 miles starting tomorrow.

FWIW:

Some people just have a 'universal problem' with Universal-Radio.

Other people simply have a 'universal love' for Universal-Radio.

Hate to say I told you so, but my previous post has been validated here.

What's the difference?  He chose Universal to do business with, much to his
chagrin...

Well Burr, Camping in the Mountains sounds real fine !
Stars & The smell of Pine ( & Of course BigFoot Crunching around outside ;-) )

- Are you bringing some extra antenna wire so you can DX in a totally RF -free
environment ??
You should be able to pick up just about anything out there with your YB400 &
some wire.
- If you have the mind, keep a record !

As fer the Gas, Ah Feel Your  Pain.
 Got me a second hand 1993 Ford Escort;  gets about ~25 mpg,
can handle luggage, SCUBA Gear & 2 Bicycles..
 Sangean 606A too !

$2.00 Is painful; can you borrow a car ??
