TenTec’s New Owner

Speculation about the identity of the new TenTec owner is running high. I’ve fielded a few dozen emails since writing about the transition, and most believe it to be Scott Robbins, W4PA.

Speculation about the identity of the new TenTec owner is running high. I’ve fielded a few dozen emails since writing about the transition, and most believe it to be Scott Robbins, W4PA.

Scott worked at TenTec for many years and now owns Vibroplex. Stan Brock, another long-time TenTec employee, went to work for Scott last summer — so you can see why his name keeps popping up as the TenTec mystery man that KI4JPL refused to identify in his published details about the latest sale of the company.

Scott is a friend, but I haven’t heard from him and have no “inside” details to divulge other than to say, I doubt he has purchased his previous employer — but I can’t say for certain.

We will just have to wait a few more weeks for an official announcement…
