Array Solutions Library
Written by George, W2VJN, this book covers how to evaluate interference problems and how to solve them. The material is especially of interest for anyone that runs more than one transmitter in his station. Contesters using SO2R, M/S, M/2 or M/M will find valuable information in this book.
We have been working on several new switches and updates to our Hamation line of band decoders, antenna switches, bandpass filters, push-button StackMatch controllers and other products.
Larry, K7MI is designing these products for us, and his work is without peer.
New Web Site Work and Shipping Costs
As our long-time customers know, our website was one of the first amateur radio vendor websites on the Internet. It is clearly out-dated from a technology perspective.
Array Solutions is developing a new, leading edge technology website that will be tightly integrated with our preferred shipping vendors (UPS, primarily) so that precise and actual shipping amounts will be reflected when you place your order rather than an estimated and often very inaccurate amount as you get today. We always charge for the actual ship cost.
Q: What has caused the shipping estimate to be such an issue?
A: Well, there are many reasons but the main one is the escalating costs of shipping that seems to increase on a nearly daily basis and the new, creative ways that shipping vendors have developed to charge us more. One component of this is the large variance in fuel costs which comprises nearly 50% of the shipping cost. The other issue that prevents us from offering "flat rate" shipping like huge online vendors like Amazon.com and others is that we are not able to negotiate as those much larger companies do.
Our old (current) web page was based on a fixed amount of cost per lb of product, and this model no longer works as many variances have been added to the way the shipping cost is calculated. There is a "fuel surcharge" that is added to every shipment and this is calculated based on the distance that the package has to be transported and obviously, this will vary for every customer. In addition, there are other factors involved of rural "delivery area surcharges" and commercial destination discounts that our website does not have any ability to factor in. Our new website will handle these situations properly and will tell you precisely what your shipping charge will be at the time you place your order.
In addition to being completely accurate, you will be able to see what other shipping options are and what they cost - second day, overnight, USPS Priority Mail etc. (which is not always less expensive), Express Mail Service and perhaps some others. We have a good rate program with UPS so this will most often present the most economical shipping options to you. This will be true for our international customers also and today, we have no ability whatsoever to estimate shipping costs for international customers. The new website will provide an accurate shipping cost!

I never thought I'd place first in Sweepstakes, but the WX0B StackMatches have certainly made my single tower, stacked tri-band quads play to their highest potential. Being ale to instantly choose a 75' or 40' antenna height as well as phase them both together, gives me plenty of options for matching my system to contest propagation. The StackMatch can also grow with me if I ever move to a "real" antenna farm because the StackMatch easily handles phasing for 3 antenna arrays. I can't wait!"
"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat. "
