All I can add are just more questions.

Checking the hazer idea out on a couple of videos on YouTube, I noticed in several videos with the hazer all the way down, there were birds nest of coax, all tangled up. That did not look good to me. The coax management looks problematic on the way up or down.

I see the ads suggesting how simple and straight forward this idea works, but nobody in the videos demonstrated raising their antenna. That is what I would like to see. Some scary stuff below.

I also wonder about the hazer binding-up even in a slight wind.

The Hazer works fine, I had one on my tower when I lived in a different house, now its in the garage. Yes, the coax is an issue, I just let mine hang, while it was not the best option it never caused an issue. If I knew a big storm or wind was coming I just lowered it. I did eventually replace this set with a fold-over/crank up tower.

I dont have the room to do a fold over tower unless i break it in the middle or cut my height way down to tilt at the base so the hazer looks like good option unless someone knows better lol

The ROHN fold in the middle towers work great.They may have a couple of sections added as well if you want or need to do so.I had one but sold it to my neighbor because I already had my ROHN 25 in the air with (4) yagi antennas on it & I was not taking it all back down.

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
