[AMRadio] Add FedEx ground to the bum list

Only one package out of hundreds I have shipped with FedEx was damaged. That 
says a lot.
UPS on the other hand, about one out of every ten that arrives is not 
damaged. As for USPS, would not use them if my life depended on it.
Regards,
Gary

The difference with Fedex is that they WILL pay for the damage.
UPS tries tooth and nail to not pay and the USPS just ignores you
or cheats you. I even had a congressman try to make USPS pay on
a damaged item claim, and they still refused. Fedex is still the best
and they RARELY if ever have broken anything I shipped.

YMMV - 73 from AF4K, Bry
