|Goodbye Radio Shack|
|1980 Radio Shack Catalog showing the DX-300 HF Receiver|
As we were packing up, the clerk proudly showed off a printed receipt from customer's purchase earlier that day that was about 8 feet in length. The clerk said the customer had raided the Radio Shack discrete component bins (resistors, capacitors, 555 timers, transistors, etc.). We made a point of thumbing through those bins whenever stopping by a Radio Shack store and more often than not walked out with a few interesting goodies. We hams will miss that experience; though, for some it has already been replaced by a trip to a local electronics parts retailer such as Fry's. Goodbye Radio Shack thanks for the memories and thank you for supporting amateur radio.
Good DX and 73, NJ2X
