  1. I'm surprised no one brought up Barry Electronics. They advertised in several ARRL pubs going back many years. Barry's was located downtown Manhattan (NYC) and had a huge inventory. They did lots of overseas mail order. There was a HF station in operation and, if you knew Jan (he was the head sales guy), you could make a few contacts during your lunch break. I spent many 120 minute lunch hours at Barry's. Robert N9EF
