Store Information

Please read through the following information before you call or visit!  For your convenience, we've opened a retail store in Meriden, CT.  Since we expect to maintain a full schedule of Hamfests through the year, store hours will be limited.  Click the link above for our Hamfest Schedule. As you can see, there are very few weekends available, so we'll be open mostly during the week.  We plan to stay open at least one evening until 7:00 PM. or later, generally Thursday.

You won't find fancy fixtures, displays and showcases.  If you've seen our setup at a Hamfest, you know what to expect.  As time goes on, we'll be expanding our selection to better accommodate your needs.  For now, most all of the items on our Web Site will be available.

You will find Anderson Powerpoles and assembled cables; a wide variety of DC Power cables and accessories; ladder line, coax cables and jumpers in several sizes and lengths; antenna wire of many types; high quality antenna rope, pulleys, and insulators; baluns; speaker mics and speakers; antenna mounts for almost any vehicle; HF, VHF, and UHF antennas for base, mobile, and portable use; connectors and adapters for most RF cables; tools, SWR meters and voltmeters; plus plenty of other handy items and gadgets to make Ham radio more fun.


But even more important, you will find honest and knowledgeable advice and service from experienced hams who live by a few simple rules:

1. Treat the customer the way we would like to be treated

2. Never sell anything we would not use ourselves

3. When in doubt, refer to rules 1 and 2.

Can we be clearer?

If we answer the phone, we're there.  If we don't, chances are good that we're off to a Hamfest, visiting a supplier, running errands, or even <rarely!> taking a day off.

You may wish to check in advance that the items you need are in stock.
