    Cincinnati desperately needs one. They'd be located near Dayton, Lexington, Louisville, Ashland/Huntington, Columbus and Indianapolis from this location.

    But… but… but, but according to the Algonquin Roundtable pundits in the Zed forums, I thought ham radio was dying?! :D

    The old Fry’s building here in San Diego is still empty. Open one here. We NEED one! Since HRO left we don’t have anything.

    Be sure to check out the restrooms. I know it shows creepy but just do it.

    Huntsville is, yes, a very techy place. Been there many times for its hamfests, since I live on the east side of Birmingham.

    Just a bit of "parts junkie" history. There used to be a couple of very good parts-focused electronics stores in Huntsville. The best was Mock's Electronics, on US231. There was a second one, and I don't recall its name. Both are history and have been for about 10 years.

    Giga survives because of web presence, not its location. I wish them well, but selling parts now is all but consumed by the big 3: Mouser, DigiKey and Newark. Selling ham gear can work with a good web presence. And attending a lot of regional hamfests, which they do. Maybe selling PCs as well.

    Actually, Florida, ala Orlando, would have made a lot of sense for a storefront. Central Florida has a ton of hams. Tampa, St. Pete, Ft. Myers, Orlando and the Space Coast.
