Returns happen. If you think you may need to return your product, please read our return policy before contacting us.

RETURN PROCEDURES

You MUST request a Return Merchandise Authorization number by email before returning any items to us (click here for RMA Request information.)

  • RMA numbers are valid for 10 business days: the return must reach us within that time.
  • The RMA number must appear clearly on the shipping package, and on a copy of your receipt enclosed with the return.
  • Please do not use the product box itself as your shipping package.
  • Please use a return shipping method which issues tracking or identification numbers and which requires a signature on delivery, so that you can be assured that the item has been received by our Returns Department.

Customer Satisfaction Returns

Return Policy on Amateur Radios

(Including but not limited to Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood and Alinco)
A RMA number must be obtained within 10 days of the order ship date
A radio may be returned for exchange/refund, if the radio has not been connected to a power source or an antenna.
Should a radio have issues after being powered, it is considered a warranty item. The radio will be tested in-house, if it is deemed defective, our technical service centre will determine if the radio is sent away for repair or replaced.
Warranty is void if a radio is modified in any way by anyone.

Defective Returns

A RMA number must be obtained within 10 days of the order ship date.  Product found to be defective may be returned to us for replacement (same item only). After 10 days, the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty will apply and you must deal directly with the manufacturer for warranty issues (see Warranty Policy).

Product Replacement:

The replacement item will be sent to you at no charge by either Xpresspost or Expedited Parcel once the defective item is received.

If you prefer, we can send you a replacement immediately (subject to availability). Immediate replacement would require the replacement product to be paid upon shipping and a refund issued upon receipt of the defective item. For an Immediate Replacement, please submit your order online, selecting whichever shipping method you prefer, and note your RMA number in the Comments & Feedback field (at the end of the Order Form). If you have upgraded the shipping method, the difference between Expedited Parcel/Xpresspost will not be refunded; shipping charges will not be refunded if additional items are ordered at the same time.
