    This reply envelope was tucked in the Harrison sales catalog that I have. See the back side scan - bullet item 3rd one down - Was there no limit to what you could order from Harrison??:p I hope it wasn't "midnight radio sales":p

    They had a "Washington's Birthday" sale every year and the prices were unbelievable. I got my first transmitter, a Knight T-150A, and my first receiver, a Star ST-700E there. It was a lot of money for a kid.

    I can relate...
    My earliest memory of Harrison Radio was a purchase of a used Knight T-150A and the companion Knight R-100A receiver. Good times, good memories... Boy, I miss the old radio row area of lower Manhattan.

    I never saw the NYC one but I was a regular at the Route 110 one in the 1970s. The ham stuff was at the back, kind of a labyrinth to get there but all kinds of cool used stuff....in fact I don't remember any old stuff!

    I doubt that was a significant factor. Shipping costs were one of those nuisance fees, about on par with sales tax back then. To-day, when shipping costs often exceed the price of the merchandise, I doubt that many people buy anything on line just to circumvent the sales tax they would have to pay to their local brick-and-mortar retail outlet

    Was Harrison the jobber that had QST ads with Kitty up at the top? We got to watch Kitty age over time. She started looking like Tammy Bakker after awhile.

    Bought my HQ 100A there sometime after 1965.

    I always liked the use of 'parts jobber' to describe your favorite electronic parts dealer! Its a throwback that brings back pleasant memories.
