Dealers are exempted, unless the product is unknown to us. Check with us if you are in doubt. You must stand by and support all claims and speciﬁcations mentioned in your advertising. The publisher of QST will vouch for the integrity of advertisers who are obviously commercial in character and for the grade or character of their products and services. Individual advertisers are not subject to scrutiny. The American Radio Relay League does not discriminate in its advertising on the basis of race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or national origin. The League reserves the right to decline or discontinue advertising for any other reason. 7. AN IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL HAM AD POSTERS AND RESPONDERS, FROM THE ARRL ADVERTISING DEPARTMENT Greetings from ARRL HQ! Please note that we have received reports from many ARRL members who have placed classiﬁed ads in these listings, and have received responses from individuals proposing “creative” payment schemes. These particular instances involved offers of overpayments for goods by bank check, followed by instructions to deduct the cost of your item from the overpayment, and to transfer the overage back or to another individual. This is a well-known scam. Unfortunately, we have no control over this and other scams of this type. Once your email address is posted, you are vulnerable to those individuals seeking to provide you with questionable information. See http://www.arrl.org/news/ features/2005/07/15/1/?nc=1 for further details. REMEMBER: TRANSACT CAREFULLY AND PROTECT YOURSELF.
