|TET was started in Japan in the 1970’s by Mac Taniguchi who developed the trap system used by companies throughout the world today.|
It was then bought by Rudy Bresnik at Emona Electronics who redeveloped the antennas to make them more robust and easier to assemble,while still retaining the Front to Back ratio and gain. With his focus shifting more to Amplifiers, he sold the business.
Employed in the industry and also a keen amateur, I could see the value of the product so two years later I bought TET-Emtron. As the adverts say “I liked the product so much, I bought the business “.
I spent the next six years attending all the hamfests, conventions and radio field days that I could to promote the fact that TET-Emtron was still alive and committed to building the best quality products. I made a lot of great friends, but more importantly I learnt what amateurs want and are needing in today’s environment. With council regulations being enforced, and visual impact in new estates being an issue, amateurs were needing low impact antennas. Also with block sizes coming down amateurs were needing smaller antennas for the lower bands.
I was getting frustrated at not being able to get the time to work on new designs that people were asking for.
Graham Robinson of Bushcomm fame saw this and wanted to help. So after some thought on this, I packed up and moved over to Western Australia.
Graham and I spent nearly three years together improving products and adding to the product line. He and his wife Carol have now decided to semi-retire, so I am once again going it alone in the sunny (read that as windy) town of Port Denison.
I am still committed to supplying the best quality antennas and antenna products that I can.
If I can be of any service to you, let me know.
