    By the way....in a future (yet to be determined) issue of QST, I have an article "Keeping Current with Antenna Performance" which is a detailed treatise on the use of the R.F. ammeter. Stay tuned!

    Nice article Eric.

    I visit this place in Sunland, CA for parts.
    APEX Electronics
    http://www.apexelectronic.com/
    Their web parts list is sparse and have a thousand times more unlisted items in stock.

    I also like
    All Electronics in Van Nuys, CA
    http://www.allelectronics.com/?iorb=4764
    The store has more, but 75% of the items are on the web site.

    Toroids Made Easy

    W8DIZ is the Toroid King. I have made many purchases from Diz and his product and the way he does business is top notch.

    He has a pretty big selection of RF Toolkits as well. The Universal VFO is really nice.

    Terry's right; APEX is like the old mil suprlus stores that were common in the 60's. (How I remember "Radio Row" on So. Michigan Ave. in Chicago!)

    But to do justice to APEX, you need a week-long expedition, not just a couple of hours for a visit. (Just don't be in the place during an eqrthquake. You might not be found for months.:rolleyes:)

    All Electronics ios pretty good, also. Unfortunately, they closed their LA store, and the Van Nuys store is much less convenient (and further away, esp. considering the price of ga$) from my location.:(

    We all probably have local (or semi-local) favourites, but unless they have mail-order sales, and/or Internet presence, they are of limited use to others.
