Pricey, but at least it ain't H&Y

    It's the same price from both dealers so what's the issue? I have purchased several items from H&Y and had great service.

    Just asking your opinion or testimony about any bad dealings with H&Y.

    Thanks mackmobile43.

    that is one overpriced antenna .if people would stop buying these overpriced antennas it would drive the price down for everyone .
    at this price point it makes a imax 2000 look like a bargain .

    Sure, if you're satisfied with noisy, rf interference causing, ultra flexible, mediocre performance.

    Mine arrived opened and resealed with packing material missing allowing damage to the antenna. Looked like it was demo'd then returned and re-sold as new. :angry:

    Ok if you are advertising your business here then I assume you are going to offer a forum member discount as well? 20% off seems fair.

    H&Y Gainmaster

    I bought my Sirio Gainmaster from H&Y, smooth and fast delivery, antenna works great, bought a Sirio 2016 from H&Y and a Sirio 5000 Performer too, never had an issue with them, I'd definately buy from them again. widowmaker

    How exactly does the antenna itself generate rf interference? ;)

    I must clarify....

    My pricey comment was not to suggest that this new seller was offering the antenna at a higher price than H&Y, I was merely pointing out that the Gainmaster could be had by a different seller.

    I do believe that when H&Y was selling them on Ebay, they had a cheaper S&H charge.

    I ordered a Radio from H&Y and paid a "brand new" price for it...Instead, I got a REFURBED TURD in a box. IAW I got ripped off. Credit card saved my ass.

    When I read warm and fuzzy stories from buyers describing their orgasmic experience whilst buying from H&Y and the "other" store close by, I am really happy for them.

    He did say it's free to check them out on his site even if he don't offer the forum members discount and that's worth something.

    I still think it is rather presumptuous to join any forum and without so much as a how do you do, start advertising your business or trying to sell your wares.

    Too old school I suppose.

    Not at all.

    It's just how people act nowadays.
