    Yes, very sad... At this point it does not remember what it use to be like.

    yeah, me too! tried to buy soundcard adapter stuff at my local RS, but wow, no stock and too much.

    I hope they'll come back, need a source for various audio adapters, parts bin, etc.

    regardless the Arduino stuff and RPi stuff rocks. too bad it is 2x or 3x realistic cost, but gotta keep the locals in business.

    If you like Aduino and Jingle Bells kits, then you might find what you want.

    Locals make up the price on the fly, sometimes. Makes 'em look good at the end of the day. I believe their day will end sooner than they think. Too bad, too.

    Your store has that? My local store used to have it but when it was sold, it was not reordered.

    Parts draws are loaded, a very large soldering section, build your own project kits are back, there are even books on electronics. The local RS in Derby, CT is back with a vengeance. RadioShack; no more TelephoneShack!!

    Was it even usable? I haven't seen usable coax in a Radio Shack round here in over a decade. The recent stuff was all their brand RG-58 which I wouldn't use for QRP on 160m unless nothing else was available.

    OK spoke too soon. Went in this morning and bare walls. Was told they were closing next week for good. This is crazy...
