    Amateur Electronic Supply is closing this month, but Ham Radio Outlet plans to open a store in the building sometime in late August.

    Old license plates customized with customer’s call signs hang on the wall at Amateur Electronic Supply, 5710 W. Good Hope Road. AES is closing its doors on July 27 after almost six decades in business.


    Among ham radio operators, it's known as the candy store.

    Amateur Electronic Supply sells radios, antennas and equipment that help hams connect with other hams throughout the world. It opened in Milwaukee in the late 1950s, attracted amateur radio enthusiasts from throughout the Midwest and eventually spawned stores in Cleveland, Orlando, Fla., and Las Vegas.

    I didn't revive it. :D

    I do miss the AES catalogs though... and receiving the brown UPS packages after ordering.

    And, I had zombie BRAINS for breakfast. They didn't do any good.

    And thankfully, an Outlet replaced the Supply.

    Who's the zombie here? More importantly, who's the pothead?
