Carl Nichols called me back from KISS-SSB and we had a long talk. He was quite informative.
Of course he is a sales man and so I need to take that into account.
He said he has sold over 2000 and none have come back (free 30 day return policy).
He also said there is a favorable article coming out on the KISS-SSB in Blue Water Sailing rag.
Some other rag also.
Bottom line is we are about to purchase the ICOM 802\Pactor and this KISS-SSB.
I will post the results here and you can also see the details on our blog.
