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
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!"
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. "
