At one time, he said he was going out of business and now he is back. I would be very concerned about a company/person who does business this way.

Hello to All,
I just want to give my opinion regarding Gulf Alfa Antennas.
I have had very good service with them. I purchased a dual band
satellite antenna for my self and was very impressed by the mechanical
of the antenna. I use it for field day and other portable events.
I also used grant monies and purchased the 2m and 70cm antennas
that I installed at the Challenger Learning Center in Kenai, Alaska
along with a station to make ARISS contacts with the ISS.
The service has been great, when I gave my timeline and my needs
to meet the deadlines.
These antennas are very well constructed and I would recommend them.
I do know from personal experience that issues can be worked out.
