    Whats the story here, rumor has it Wilson Antenna is going under. No one seems to have anything in stock, they stopped doing warranty replacements, and now I hear they are going out of business? Can this be possible?

    Sparky posted the other day on his site that Wilson was going under unless someone bought them out. People on other Forums have been posting that suppliers are out of stock. I bought a few plus some pcs./parts for mine just in case it's true. BTW, my supplier hadn't heard anything about them closing, FWIW.

    Wilson has been owned by the Barjan Corporation since 1999.

    I wonder if Ameritron is being bought out by Barjan.

    That would be nice. I could just pick up an AL 80B at the Pilot next to the Big Mouth Billy Bass.

    Al BS and Speculation...

    I spoke to 3 customer service reps and a PR rep for Barjan who all said that there were some production issues and that they would be back in full swing in March...

    Maybe this is just the story from the talking heads but it is what their people are claiming at this point in time.

    Pix of Barjan Headquarters, parking lot empty, not a vehicle in sight, not even the staff from the air freshener division.

    See DWB's post and you'll see why there is no-one there, they sneaked out under the cover of darkness to the land of milk and frijoles.
