Letter from WA7IR offering a
15% discount on antennas. Thank you
I wanted to get you an update on
SteppIR Communication Systems during this uncertain time.
We are all dealing with a shock
to our normal daily lives as literally the world adjusts to
the new normal of dealing with the coronavirus.
SteppIR continues to operate at
nearly full function, although new protocols have been taken
to maximize the safety of our employees and customers.
By now, you know the steps being put in place, likely by
heart, so I won’t go into details there.
The primary reason for this
update is to let you know that we are here, we are open for
business and we are ready to assist in any way our customers
Amateur radio operators have been
at the forefront of every significant communications
emergency event worldwide – ready to mobilize and assist on
a moments notice when other communications options have
failed. I don’t know how just yet our fraternity
will be asked to contribute during our current emergency,
but I am confident if called, we will collectively as a
group respond swiftly and emphatically, as always.
At SteppIR, we want to support
the goodwill efforts of our customers, of which many are a
significant part of the emergency communications groups
within the amateur radio service. In a time where many
companies are raising their prices, we are offering a 15%
discount from the standard pricing for any new consumer
antenna purchase, during the month of March and April 2020.
It is simply our way of saying thank
you, for what you do. We would like to
also give special thanks to those of you that already own
our products - without you, we would not be here today.
You are our family, and we are incredibly indebted.
In closing, I wanted to comment
on something that we have known collectively as amateur
radio operators for many years - at the end of the day,
regardless of personal, political or religious differences,
ham radio operators all over the world have existed
harmoniously as extended family for as long as the hobby has
been in existence, which is something as a fraternity we
should be incredibly proud of, and thankful for.
As this world and all its inhabitants have raced into the
future, often times I have felt like we were losing
our humanity- folks seem to be more stressed, self-absorbed
and not nearly as friendly and helpful as “the good old
days”. Since we all have become burdened by the impact
of the coronavirus, everywhere I turn - whether it be in my
own personal encounters with people or reading / hearing
about others, there seems to be a certain resolve all around
our planet - helpful, friendly and caring folks that
while fighting their own fight, are still looking out for
others. In this time of great stress, my greatest
comfort is in knowing that humanity hasn’t given up on each
