Dayton Dropoff

Scott Manthe-2
Hello to the list,
I'm getting ready to send my K3 off to Elecraft for some updates. Does
anyone know if it would be possible for me to drop the radio off to them
at Dayton, saving $50 shipping? The better question might be has anyone
actually done this?

73,
Scott N9AA

Almost certainly not.

I wanted them to carry some parts to Dayton for collection, but they can't
do that. I can't see them doing it in 'reverse' either.

I'm having parts shipped to a friend who will then deliver to another friend
at Dayton, who will carry them back to the UK.

Please don't do that to them!!!  They have enough to deal with getting
tons of stuff to Ohio and back...

Ship it to them.... If you don't have the right packaging, then call and
ask them to sell you a new set of packing materials...

Thanks!

PS - I need to send my K3s in too, I think...  but I will wait until
AFTER the Hamvention and send it direct.

Hi Alan,

I apologize, but we are unable to receive products for service at the show. In
addition to the chance for loss or damage to your radio there in the commotion
of the show, we're maxed out just keeping up with the regular show sales and
demos. We are also limited in what we can hand carry back with us on the plane
to CA.

Also, anyone planning a service return needs to first contact our sales or
support group and have them issue you a 'return service authorization' (RSA)
form and number along with shipping info to the factory etc. That's the only way
we can guarantee that we will be able receive it properly to track it, handle it
properly, get it completed quickly and back to you. (I apologize if you have
already done that step :-)

If you are hand carrying it with you from the U.K., one solution might be to
post it via UPS to us from a local UPS store' in Dayton. There are a number of
these there and also in some of the local office supply stores.  Of course, make
sure to contact us first to get the RSA form and number.

73,
Eric

Re: Dayton Dropoff

G4GNX
Hi Eric.

I'm sure there's no need to apologise, but actually it's Scott (the OP)
who wanted to transport a rig, not me.

My comment was merely to illustrate that Scott's request was unlikely to
be fulfilled and certainly was not a complaint.

I fully accept your reasons for not transporting customers' goods to and
from Dayton and I'm quite happy with the current arrangement I have for
collecting my Elecraft order.

On my own behalf, thank you for your attention, which is one of the
reasons I'm glad that I use Elecraft products.

73,

Alan. G4GNX

Hi Eric,
I was the OP and I appreciate your response. I've long had the return
authorization and have procrastinated sending it, as my situation is a
bit unusual in that I have an uninstalled KRX3 that I'd like to be
updated as well, but not installed. I'll send it after Dayton. Thanks
again for responding. One of the many reasons I'm an Elecraft owner.

Thanks too to everyone else who took the time to reply!

Despite that being Elecraft policy, if anyone has a K2, K1, KX1 or
XVseries transverter that is to be sent to me for repair, you can hand
it to me *personally* at the Elecraft booth (do not leave it at the
booth with anyone else).
If I am away from the booth, come back in an hour or so.

I will be driving from Dayton back to Wake Forest, NC, so a few extra
packages will not be any problem.

Be certain you have the service form filled out and packed with your gear.
Please put it in a box for easier handling or stacking.  Pack it so it
does not move inside the box.

Scott,

Are you serious???  How do you expect them to get your rig back to
Watsonville without incurring some added cost?  It certainly costs them
something to bring all that they bring in the first place!!!

Bite the bullet, and put it in the mail!

Re: Dayton Dropoff

Scott Manthe
The question was asked without any expectation that Elecraft could/would
do this and no criticism was offered when Eric said they couldn't.

The unfortunate thing about the Internet is that there are people who've
apparently forgotten what it means to be polite and who feel the need to
offer a criticism on almost any question, no matter how innocent, or
every suggestion, no matter how well meaning.
