UK ham radio dealer Waters and Stanton plc has announced that they will be exclusive resellers of Elecraft products in the UK. This will be a great benefit to those who like to try before they buy or are just nervous about buying from abroad via the internet.
I have been buying direct from Elecraft for 12 years and have never had a problem apart from the high cost of shipping and the courier’s tax collection fee, both of which make buying some of the smaller Elecraft kits and modules rather expensive. But then, I have been lucky so far never to have had a faulty radio that had to be shipped back to California. Touch wood.
Elecraft has said that UK hams will still be able to buy direct if they want to.
