The following page describes the practices which govern our conduct of business and describes our areas of business. They are by their nature included in any and all agreements between PK Communications and its customers, advertisers and their agencies.

PK Communications has a production business unit (, which produces  "Radio-Road-Test", and the "Radio-Road-Test Minute".  It markets the program to broadcast affiliates, and solicits advertisers for its commercial availability in "Radio-Road-Test" and the “Radio-Road-Test Minute”. Advertising information on the national broadcast edition and on line edition of Radio-Road-Test and the Radio-Road-Test Minute may be obtained by e-mailing sales(a) PK Communications also provides limited broadcast services for remote broadcasts/podcasts, free-lance radio news reporting services, radio news consultancy, commercial and promotional voice over services, and limited editorial print and photography on a commission basis.

Billing/Payments, etc.--Past regional/national advertising customers in good standing may, on a case by case basis, be offered a deferred payment plan at the cash with order electronic billing rate for advertising which consists of an up-front deposit of not less than 25 per cent of the total order and up to four equal installments to satisfy the balance, on a mutually agreeable schedule. The company may, at its option, offer this discount to members in good standing of Empower Federal Credit Union (Syracuse, NY).  PK Communications has a standard rate, and a discounted cash with order rate for most products and services. The standard rate is the basis for invoiced paper billing and/or any advertising agency discount. The discounted cash with order rate is given to customers who request electronic billing or remit full payment with order, whether by company payment cards (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express), PayPal, cash or company check (personal checks not accepted). Customers who pay by Automated Clearing House payment (ACH) are also billed at the discounted cash with order rate. We also accept Government Agency Payment cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo for payment. This allows businesses an opportunity to use company payment cards, PayPal accounts or the BillMeLater (sm) feature to pay any balances due.   For all customers (including recognized advertising agencies, and those customers who elect to be billed with a paper invoice), a prompt payment of invoices is expected.  All invoices are due upon their receipt, with a 30 calendar day grace period from the date of the invoice. On day 31, a 2% interest charge (24% APR) is added to unpaid balances. If paper invoices are more than 60 days due, any future advertising will be suspended until back balances are brought current. Paper Invoice customers experiencing cash flow problems may be allowed to work out a payment plan, where the balance is spread out over a 6 month period with an immediate partial payment and all subsequent payments to be made by company payment card, or ACH. Once the payment plan is completed, the business is then back in good standing.

A $30.00 charge will be assessed for any returned check, reversed ACH or other unpaid paper or electronic instrument presented to PK Communications for payment of goods and services, that is not the result of bank/credit union error. That charge is waived if you present us with a letter on bank/credit union stationery admitting the error.

Professional Services (news consultancy, etc.) fees are billed on either an hourly rate (one billable hour, minimum) or a day rate plus expenses (minimum of four billable hours per day). On-site visits will be billed at a two day rate minimum. Those visits will incur the following expenses for each day of training, supervision and installation in addition to the professional services fee: common carrier travel, lodging, and the allowance for meals and incidental expenses determined by the Federal Government for that particular area. Those expenses will be billed separately and electronically, unless otherwise agreed. Voice over services are charged a session fee, whether the session is used or not, unless the voice over is for advertising in the local availability of Radio-Road-Test on an affiliated station. That session fee is dependent upon the length of the commercial flight and the market/markets in which the proposed commercial is scheduled to appear.  Narration voice overs are charged on a per project buyout basis.
