    Default Sandy's Communications Announces Acquisition of Kreco Antennas

    Hey guys, bet you thought this was going to be one of those fancy PR jobs. Nope! I've acquired Kreckman's and will keep doing everything exactly the same as it has been for the last 60+ years. Only difference will be who answers the phone when you call. Great products, great service, exceptionally fair price. Who else in this business can offer that?

    Need an immediate quote for the CHP style omni base antenna at 52MHz please! Curious what the cost would be. You know the one... Coaxial dipole?

    Congrats!

    Best of luck in the business. Did this for 1.5 years. Tough business to compete in.

    We use both the D-100A (http://www.krecoantennas.com/broadband.htm) and CO-35A (http://www.krecoantennas.com/lbcaxial.htm) and they are terrific.

    Wew lads, it's official, closing has closed and my schedule is looking to involve about half my time being in PA for the foreseeable future. I'm working on getting the website redone, and an online catalog with pricing, possibly an e-commerce solution as well, but still trying to keep that friendly personalized service and not over extend myself too far. The factory will be staying in the beautiful Pocono Mountains for the time being and we'll continue to strive to have all orders (except for the Heavy Duty models) shippable within 24 hours. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, 570-595-2212 or sales@kreckmans.com. Here's a brief ham friendly price list for those interested. All pricing is FOB Cresco PA, no upcharges on freight, just a pass through of our actual costs.

    6 Meters:

    Coaxial:

    CO-35AN 50-100MHz $220
    CO-36AN DC Ground 50-100MHz $363
    CO-40AN 50-100MHz $270
    CO-41AN 50-100MHz $270
    CO-41HN 50-100MHz Heavy Duty $847

    Co-Plane:

    CP-35AN 50-76MHz $424
    CP-36AN DC Ground 50-76MHz $660
    CP-40AN 50-76MHz $605
    CP-41AN 50-76MHz $847
    CP-41HN 50-76MHz Heavy Duty $1331

    2 Meters:
    SC-155AN Stacked Coaxial 108-176MHz $396
    CO-151AN Coaxial 108-222MHz $146
    CO-155AN Coaxial 108-222MHz $182
    GP155AN Ground Plane 108-222MHz $246
    FGP155AN Ground Plane 108-222MHz $242

    70cm:
    CO-461AN Coaxial 440-470MHz $99
    GP-461AN Ground Plane 440-470MHz $139

    Discones:
    D100AN 100-800MHz $479
    D150AN 150-1200MHz $303
    D300AN 300-2400Mhz $198

    All items listed have N Female connectors. We can build these with UHF Female connectors if so desired. I am anticipating raises prices at some point in the near future, but will strive to hold these prices as-is if at all possible.

    Very happy to see a great local business grow and team up with another great vendor!
    Your streaming makes me AES-256. Keep it up and you'll soon have nothing to listen to.
