Fair Radio Sales is closing

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Phil (W9IXX), who shares the following note posted on the Fair Radio Sales website:

After being in the surplus electronic military business over 50 years, I
have decided it’s time to retire and close the business. Fair Radio Sales
has over 30,000 sq ft of electronic parts and equipment that must go.
Over the next several months plan your visit to Fair Radio to stock up on electronic
parts, equipment, manuals, vacuum tubes and one of a kind items at
lower than hamfest prices. Buy an item, a pallet, or a truckload.
Come and make a deal. Cash and carry

Certainly the end of an era. I’ve bought a number of items from Fair Radio Sales over the years. If you live within driving distance and have vintage radio gear (especially military), you might consider a visit to stock up!

Thanks for the tip, Phil! I know we’ve linked to article on this site before, but thanks for mentioning it again. This is truly a treasure trove for those of us who love vintage radio.  I especially like the articles page which has a number of fascinating reports. Of course there are a load of photographs and recordings as well.
