I really liked the responses to the topic. However, I didn't hear any
comments about other means of shipping; Fed-X, Motor Freight, U.S.Airborn
etc. Keep those articles coming.

Subject: [Hallicrafters] SWL Certificate Change
Message-Id: <200010081636.MAA32287@listserver.qth.net>



	
Because of so many short-wave listeners having difficulty in obtaining QSL
verifications from various countries, I have decided to make a change in the
requirements to obtain one of these beautiful certificates. 	
	
You can see it at:	
	
www.hallicrafters.org	
	
Find the link to the 'short-wave certificate rules' and click on it. When you
see the small certificate, click on it. It will enlarge. The real one is quite
literally, beautiful! Thanks to KE0KB Tom Guntzel, who helped me create it.	
	
You can now obtain a certificate for logging 25, 50 or 75 countries by
submitting the list of stations and countries heard to me by e-mail or regular
mail. Be sure to include the other requirements stated in the rules. Yes, you
should read them. (grin)	
	
If you want a certificate for 100 or more countries logged, you will need to
submit the station/country list to me. I will select 15% of those countries to
be verified by QSL, as stated in the rules. Because of the difficulty of this
accomplishment, all of those who do attain it will also receive some bonus
goodies donated by KO6BB Phil Atchley.     	
	
The certificate will be offered until April 15, 2001. Get busy! You will be glad
you did. This one is worth having!

Thanks to all who have responded, you have added much to this thread. Maybe 
it's not such a bad idea to have a review like this from time to time as many 
of you have contributed tips learned along the way that might help get more 
of the BAs we love to trade safely to their destinations. I thought I was 
doing a pretty good job here but some of you submitted things I didn't know 
or hadn't thought of. I am grateful for your input and am saving your tips 
here for future reference. I was moved to write earlier after seeing Marty's 
post about the damaged KWM-2A and Steve's account of the damaged Valiant. 
Both were probably preventable with a little more careful preparation during 
packing. It's true that some items will require more attention and a little 
more of our time to pack properly. In the case of the Valiant it seems more 
often than not you hear about the transformers being torn out due to their 
weight probably from being dropped. This is not to say you can't safely ship 
a Valiant as I am sure some make it OK it's just that the odds seem to be 
against it unless you remove the transformers. But can you get the sender to 
remove them? Another example would be in the case of the Collins 516F-2 power 
supply. It's small enough to be inviting to just go ahead and wrap it up as 
is and get it in a box but you are inviting probable disaster to the 
perforated cabinet due to the weight of the transformers. A better approach 
here would be to remove the cabinet (and tubes) and pack them in a separate 
box. Also some mentioned having their boxes pierced by what appeared to be 
forklift forks. It has been reported to me that UPS is a hard taskmaster and 
had a bunch of disgruntled package handlers on the box line on their hands 
after raising the weight limit they had to deal with a while back. Apparently 
the overworked low wage box line handlers felt they could strike back where 
it hurts in the bottom line because UPS is self insured. It has also been 
brought to my attention that it is possible to invite a little "special 
handling" of your box if it is apparent that something fragile and valuable 
is inside. I especially liked the story about the diamond shippers and that 
frequently very small packages insured for a high value turned up missing 
with the Post Office never to be seen again. With the increasing use of the 
internet to buy and sell radios packing for safe delivery will become more 
important than ever to help preserve those that are left. Our boatanchors 
were sold originally in comparatively small numbers to a rather limited 
market compared to the broad general consumer market most other antique 
radios were aimed at so that may make them a better collectible in the 
future. This is not to mention the "fun factor" we get to enjoy now.

Message-Id: <200010080620.CAA10536@listserver.qth.net>



	
The dialogue on UPS and the Postal System inspired me to write a four part
series on Frogzilla, the unofficial protector of boat anchors, getting revenge. 
I just now finished the rough draft of part #1. If it is proof read and in final
form, it will be available later today.   	
	
Remember to join me on Sunday October 8th for the HCA 20 meter net. Warm up is
at 1:00 PM EDT, (1700 UTC), and the official start is at 1:15 PM EDT, (1715
UTC). As always, on 14.293 Mhz usb	
	
I have to get three hours of sleep, as my day begins at 5:30 AM daily. Otherwise
you may hear some snoring during the Net!

Yes!! I firmly agree with Dave.  USPS is far better than UPS and really
doesn't cost that much more.  Last year I received a 75S3 (shipped via
UPS) which was double boxed correctly but was pierced through by what
appeared to be a fork from a forklift truck. The front panel and most of
the knobs and controls were smashed and/or bent beyond repair.  It was a
nightmare!  UPS finally settled,  but took months.  I never have had one
problem with USPS.  Definately worth a few extra bucks.
