This section is necessary to comply with legal requirements - and to make a few things clear to the reader.

Amazon Affiliation

Ever since they appeared as an online seller and well before I started this blog, I've been ordering from Amazon. They are reliable, have a great return policy, and I can save on shipping by ordering from my local Amazon store. Until a few days ago, I've always provided links to Amazon USA, as most of visitors are from the States.
Just recently, I discovered that I may receive compensation from Amazon if I link to a product. I've already been doing this for years, but simply by replacing existing links, I can increase my radio budget and can afford to purchase more radio equipment.
As a result, links pointing to Amazon are affiliate links now. This comes at no additional cost to you, and as always, I only recommend products I would recommend to a friend. Ripoffs never had an Amazon link, even if they were from Amazon, and I won't change that practice. Manufacturer links have always been provided, and I will continue to do so.

Manufacturer Support

I've bought equipment and got supported later, or received review samples from the following manufacturers and individuals:
- Nooelec,
- rtl-sdr.com,
- FlightAware,
- SDRPlay,
- Outernet,
- Thumbnet,
- Adam 9A4QV,
- eBay seller Novakx5,
- eBay seller Janilab,

If an item is a review sample, this fact is clearly noted in the review.
I do not receive any monetary compensation from any of the equipment providers listed above.

No allegiances

Absolutely. I use equipment, which I buy from my own money, or receive as a sample. Before a manufacturer sends me a sample, I make it clear that I will write what I think. If the maker does not agree, I refuse to do a review. I 'm not a magazine, I don't have to write nice things to get advertising revenue.
I trust what I recommend. I recommend products I use and happy with, and don't recommend products I don't like.
I recommend Nooelec, because their stuff are high quality. If they are terrible in comparison, I note that.
I recommend rtl-sdr.com, whenever it's warranted. The maker knows that the SMArt's cable is longer and better quality, so won't be offended when I state that fact.
I recommend Adam's accessories. I bought my first LNA4ALL, then bought many other preamps and received samples from Adam later on - still, when I need a reliable preamp, I reach for an LNA4ALL.
