When I lived in Toronto, I used to travel across the border to get "good deals" because my dollar went further here (at that time electronics were cheaper to buy in the US) so I travelled to Buffalo on cross border "shopping trips" on a regular basis.
I've been to Hirsh's radio mart, CSV electronics, GLB Electronics and Saia Communications in Buffalo before.
Hirsh's has lots of new and used stuff. Lots of used gear but also carries a lot of widgets too like police scanners etc.. It's located in a residential home district off Main street (Highway 5 - Seaway Trail?)
It's not the same "radiomart" as that ebay guy you need to stay away from, that guy lives in Kentucky.
You can see Hirsh's website here:
CSV electronics store is more like a CB radio shop but he does carry things like high end antenna switches, meters, coax cable etc.. mobile radio electronics , antenna mounting stuff etc... He also sells on Ebay.
GLB electronics is owned by a ham operator (forget his call at the moment) and he primarily deals with repeater part electronics etc.
Saia Communications is the area "Motorola" go to place.
You can google the addresses. Hope that helps.
