I wanted to take a minute and let everyone know what is going on with Arrow Antenna and Gulf Alpha.

As you may know, Arrow Antenna is purchasing the VHF, UHF and Satellite product lines from Gulf Alpha Antenna.

We will announce here when these will be available.

Gulf Alpha may continue with their HF and other product lines.

In about November 2015, I made the initial arrangement with Pete of Gulf Alpha Antennas to purchase his VHF, UHF and Satellite product lines since he is trying to downsize/retire.

At that time, I paid him a down payment for this transaction with balance due in monthly payments when I started selling his product line.

Then, in December, I figured out a solution to a problem I was having in trying to further automate the manufacturing processes here at Arrow Antenna.

Once I had that problem solved, I went full-speed ahead in my design of the automation equipment I need to make. This has been long days of work since then getting designs figured out, and prototyped. This project is my top priority here at Arrow Antenna and so I had to put the Gulf Alpha products on the back burner. I don't have skilled enough employees to delegate either of these projects, so one has to wait.

In the mean time, I have started paying Pete the required payments even though I am not making money from his products. I don't consider it ethical to delay payments just because I shifted gears.

Another cause of delay in all this is that we lost an employee during this time.

So, I apologize for the delay on the Gulf Alpha products.

I will update this page when they are available to order or I have significant news.
