All I know is I talked to a VAR and was assured I could get the prices I requested and have the process work the way I asked about. I'm just doing a little leg work to see what happens. When I compare what I can buy now, a $550 single pack. Because I can't even afford 25 pack. To the 100 pack prices of something like $260..... It's a no brainer Charles. The $290 saving per radios covers any admin fees in savings by far. If you want Canopy radios, hit me off list. The only way I currently plan of profiting from this is the $290 savings on each radio. I just want 900 gear I can afford.

Brian, I commend you on taking the initiative and (hopefully) proving my
naysaying wrong

However, waving my magic wand (or maybe I'm just full of @[EMAIL PROTECTED]), I predict
the following 2 outcomes will occur:

1. Brian will not be able to get enough interest / coordination / payment
for the buying club to succeed, and nothing will be bought

2. Brian will be smart enough to coordinate the buying club, but will
realize that the coordination of the buying club is a lot of effort (effort that takes away time from running his WISP) -- at that point, he will either

(a) stop doing the buying club, since he will need to address his day-to-day
business needs / obligations / demands

(b) continune doing the buying club, but w/ an initial moderate markup (to handle his administration costs) -- over time, if he continues to succeed,
he will evolve into a full fledged reseller / distributor for WISPs
providing various value-added services to varying levels of customers, and
the "middleman" will return
