Scanner Master, you can buy stuff at their offices:
260 Hopping Brook Road, Holliston, MA 01746

Near Framingham, MA

I have not been there, but their website is so detailed, not sure why you would need to go there. I've bought 2 scanners and many accessories there without a hitch.

Banner is in the upper right corner ^^^^^

Lentini deserves a look too if you're nearby to Berlin. Lentini Communications, Inc.

Near K Mart. Have not been in there in awhile, so I didn't mention it. I wouldn't call it a Superstore, but there's the phone number.

Last time I was at Lentini's I grabbed a almost NIB IC-R5 for $135. Use it almost daily, although I wish I could understand it better...

No doublt tho, he had a ton of HAM stuff and plenty of antennas, more mobile if I recall. I'll be back in October.

Lentini's also has a decent selection of scanner stuff too. But remember, you'll pay more.
If you want something specific, it's cheaper to go to scanner master via their webpage or scanner world via their webpage.

I used to love supporting a local dealer like Lentini. I have been doing business with them since crystals were first put in scanners. I even bought my first Ham portable when I got my Ham license. Unfortunately, with the economy being what it is, I no longer do business with them on a regular basis. Between the fuel cost and the state tax, it is no longer cost effective for me to continue to do business with them. With just a few clicks here at my house, I can order whatever I need much cheaper. If I happen to be in the area, say at the Cables and Connectors store up the road where I get all my electronic parts that ratshack does not have, THEN I stop by and maybe pick up an accessory or 2. Too bad!

I agree that Lentini's is close by and it's nice to support the locals, but they don't give their product up too cheap; so online shopping will get you lower prices and saves you $$ on fuel. Just where up the road is that Cables and Connectors store? This sounds like a place I need to check out.

2307 Berlin Turnpike Newington, CT

The ultimate "toy store" for just about any connector, component, power supply or gadget you can think of. When the owner recognized in the 90's that Radio Shack was getting away from selling all of those components, he very wisely opened a store to fill the void. Peg Boards and Walls full of "stuff".

If you remember Hatry's or Signal Center - you get the idea.

I too bought my very first Scanners, CB's, Short Waves, Antennas and Crystals from Lentini in the 70's. Good people, outdone by the Internet on pricing.

I love that store! You are not kidding about it being the ultimate "toy" store. It never fails, I walk in with a defined list of ONLY the items I need for a project, and somehow I walk out with "a few more" extra items that I HAVE to have! ( aha, right!) I do miss Hatry's from back in the day!
