This from Claude Overholt, CASARA:

‘’I am the  VP/Treasurer for CASARA Ontario and look after our equipment. I have been dealing with David Koster at Pointer Inc. in Tempe AZ for about two years. I have found David to be a very straight up honest person and a pleasure to deal with. I know some people will be a little reluctant to ship their ELT to the USA but to date I have never had a problem. Just put on the package sent for repairs. I asked David about COPA members sending their ELTs to him and his response is the email I received below from him.’’

‘’Pointer Avionics was, in good faith, to distribute and support our products in Canada. The closure without notification to us nor any support extended to existing customers was a hardship for all. Pointer, Inc. will continue to support our equipment that was distributed through Pointer Avionics. The PN C2020 alkaline battery pack can be replaced with our PN 2020 alkaline battery pack to maintain the certification and warranty on our Model 3000 and 4000 series ELTs. For the time being, if repair is required, units can be sent back to our factory in Tempe, AZ.’’
