If you are ever confused or uncertain about what you might need, simply CONTACT US (Email or Phone)  or fill out our  PRODUCT SELECTION ASSIST FORM for a speedy reply - simply tell us what type of antenna(s) you have and where you would like to mount them. One example of our customizable products features is our now seven antenna bases which fit all of our compatible mounts - this takes a bit of design consideration but is one of our business strategies on how to truly make unique products! We also offer a variety of finishes, from hand buffed aluminum to five powder coat finishes.

    Our products are fully blueprinted and manufactured with specific quality control procedures including the use of drilling templates, whether made by us or by local machine and welding shops. This also allows us to provide replacement parts, something that cannot be done with products mass produced in China or by manufacturers whose designs change "every other day".

    Our products are made in single or small runs by us or local shops - these shops also supply the local aerospace industry so they are well qualified. The few items we do not make, such as connectors and antenna bases, are selected because they are the most heavy duty we can find and are of very good quality. We add custom hardware to our antenna bases so they will fit interchangeably into the 3/4 inch diameter holes in our mounts and brackets - no one else provides this feature. We do not skimp on quality just to sell the "most inexpensive parts possible" - such products are usually not of very high quality - "WYSIWYG" what you see is what you get. We have even submitted a few items to our "salt bath test" to determine if they will rust. As a result of this test, we dropped our supplier of our original SO239 nuts as the "overseas" plating was very poor and the nuts rusted - not so with our nicely machined heavy duty nuts that are the only ones we now provide with our products and now sell individually - these are not found at hamfests!

    We stock some of our products and others are made to order, since it is not possible for a small business to stock every product in all 6 of our product finishes! However, our suppliers provide fast service and as a result in most cases we can ship in 1-2 weeks for products made specifically to blueprints for your order. This includes new or custom products made just for you!

    We ship worldwide by Priority Mail via the USPS. This is quick and reliable - in four years we have not had a single package lost to any part of the planet - so far! Shipping times are 2-4 days for the United States, and 1-2 weeks for most international shipping, even to Australia, Asia and Europe. We provide specific shipping prices for all products, so you know up front what shipping will be. Shipping prices are based on shipping one or two items and include the fees that PayPal charges us, in addition to full insurance if available to the country it is shipping to. We are able to provide a shipping discount for orders of three or more items, and you can submit a QUOTE REQUEST or we voluntarily refund the shipping discount after you place the order, as we have done many times for our customers to their "pleasant surprise".

    (4)  THE REP DESIGN STORY 
    2017 is my 10th year in business!

    Thank you for viewing our web site, we appreciate your interest and business. Many thanks to our many customers worldwide who have made our business a success since 2007 - THANK YOU! We provide EXCELLENT customer service that is second to none! You can phone or email us - if we're in the office any time of the day or evening we will answer your questions and needs. If you submit a quote request , we respond promptly. We treat our customers the same way we want to be treated by the companies we do business with!

    Our products are designed and built by Dick Post, N7EMW, for amateur radio operators as well as CB and commercial mobile and portable radio operators, worldwide, who is looking for unique well made products. We have sales across North America, Australia, Asia, Europe and New Zealand – not quite “worked all continents” yet but we're trying!

    We only make and sell products that Dick would use, and in fact he has used many of them on his personal mobile and portable antenna setups. Yes, Dick is a bit of a perfectionist! If he would not use something you will not find it on our web site! Our company was founded when he designed our initial product in 2007, the UHAM-100, because he was not satisfied with any of the available antenna mounts for his large HF antenna –  years later the “UHAMs” are still working great.

    All products we design are "blue printed", which means that parts are interchangeable between production runs and you get what you see on our web site. This also allows us to sell replacement parts for our products if they are ever needed. Our products are made to high quality standards: we follow written manufacturing specifications and all parts are produced and quality checked with templates and blueprints. You can see a sampling of our templates in the shop photos that are on our PHOTO GALLERY, under “Company Photos”. We require our suppliers to have the same high quality standards – we reject parts that do not meet our written work order specifications. All products include a "return for any reason" limited warranty .

    Our products are designed and assembled in the USA. Parts are manufactured by us or other shops in the local area.

    Our company philosophy is to build unique and attractive products, even if the market is limited, that serve the amateur and mobile/portable radio community world-wide. We are always looking for product ideas that are not currently being provided by other companies - LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE IDEAS! Our goal is to remain a small “fun” business and as such do not have to sell a "thousand products" to stay in business.

    The founder and owner of REP Design LLC, Dick Post (N7EMW), has worked as a geologist in the petroleum and environmental industries for 30 years and has been “building things that work well” for over 40 years. He retired from a Fortune 50 manufacturing company based in Connecticut and began REP Design LLC in 2007 to provide unique antenna mounts and related products. He obtained his Novice license in the 1970's in his home state of Minnesota and his General license in the early 1980's while living in Wyoming (source of his current call!). His primary radio interests are HF mobile and QRP portable, in addition to the 6m to V/UHF bands. He's installed antennas on a number of cars, bikes, canoes, backpacks and various portable antenna systems. If you can put an antenna on something he'd like to try it! Dick has also been an adjunct professor, teaching environmental science and natural disaster courses, and a first responder for contamination remediation. He has served / currently serves on two of his town's commissions (Charter Revision and Conservation Commission) and is involved with a local land conservation group.
