ATLANTIC HAM RADIO LTD. 368 Wilson Ave
(416) 636-3636 Downsview, ON
(416) 631-0747 (fax) Canada M3H 1S9
All US orders shipped UPS AIR.
Also appearing to the left of the advertisment is the text:
NOTE ON ADVERTI***T AT RIGHT:
As of 4/26/94 it became unlawful to market cellular-capable receivers in the
U.S. Atlantic Ham Radio assures us it will give full refund and hold
customers harmless from shipping expenses if a purchased unit is returned to
the vendor by U.S. Customs.
Now how is that for an adverti***t! That is a guarantee you have NOTHING
to lose in getting your cellular capable unit from Atlantic! This should
remove any doubt from those poor hopeless dealers who no longer have any
cellular restorable scanners in stock (I could name quite a few, but I won't).
DO NOT BUY U.S.!, buy the international model from these fine folks, don't be
left out with a censored unit with an 800 mhz band full of holes!
This is just the type of advertisment I know some of you have been waiting
for, from the questions I receive in e-mail. It appears in the September
issue of MT, page 97... if you still doubt it -- go buy a copy today!
[The above was an unsolicited recommendation and quoted adverti***t due to
its relevancy of obtaining cellular equipment into the U.S. from foreign
places, shall we dare call it "importing"? I am in no way related to the
company referenced and receive no form of consideration for these statements.]
