    For those of you who attended the Dayton HAMvention over the years, I’m sure you will remember the large Mendelsons tent, a true “fixture” every year, located in the flea market right behind the “late” HARA ARENA complex. It was always loaded with aisles of surplus electronics and other goodies. Owner, Sandy Mendelson, age 78, passed away July 3. Mendelsons, which went out-of-business late last year, was a “landmark” in downtown Dayton for over half a century. More details can be found on the WHIO TV website.

    Bummer.

    I remember Sandy and bought many parts from Mendelson's back in the 70s and 80s.

    They were a fixture at HARA. I don't recall seeing them at the new venue in Xenia from the outset.

    Another great source gone away. Im still mourning the shut down of Radio Row in NYC where I started to parts shop two years before getting my Novice in 1955 at 14.
