• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

For Some of you more experience folk...

Here's a question..I ordered a part (adapter) From testparts.com in Georgia. When I got it today it was actually shipped from Universal Radio In Ohio! Are they the same company or what has happened> I ordered something from Universal radio last night but I wouldn't have gotten it this quick..Why did I get a testparts company order from universal radio? Anyone Know?

Probably was a drop shipment. Universal either doesn't stock it or was out of stock so they ordered it from testparts.com and had it shipped directly to you. I view that as good customer service instead of making you wait on a back ordered part. JMHO

The question i would ask is could you have purchased the item directly from Universal Radio and saved any money? It sounds like testparts.com is just a middle man, which is fine and dandy, but not if you are getting taken for a couple extra bucks to order through them instead of going to their source to begin with.

TestParts.com

TestParts.com is not a middle man for Universal Radio or any other company. In fact, we have no professional relationship with Universal Radio. With that said, we can not explain why the labeling was confused. Thank you, Terry Burton, KD4AHN, Sales@TestParts.com, (706) 361-0825. TestParts.com
