Default Retirement Announcement: Jeff from The Ham Station

A lot of you know and have relied on Jeff, KA9YKA, (aka Trido) at The Ham Station in Evansville, Indiana as a source for scanners over the past 30 years. Friday, December 29, 2017 was his last day of work, as he decided to retire to enjoy more time with his wife, children, and grandchildren, as well as continuing to enjoy the scanning hobby on a more personal level.

With the current transition of Vanderburgh County, Indiana's EDACS system to P25, Jeff also plans on serving the local scanner community in the Evansville area through his new website, ScanEvansville scanner site.

Jeff would like to thank all of his friends, customers, and fellow Radioreference members for the many years of fellowship and business. It has been an interesting journey from the days of crystal scanners to today's multi-mode digital units.

I talked to Jeff 1st week of December and he told me of his plans. I would like to take this time to say THANKYOU for all the scanner and radio sales dating back to the late 80's. I have driven the 180 miles oneway to buy several times. He will be missed from the sales side. As stated before enjoy your time thanks.
Dan still has things listed on the site new and used.

Found out from Jeff in December that he was retiring, and Dan also, after selling remaining inventory. Jeff always provided great service and was well versed in scanner knowledge, being an enthusiast himself. All the best Jeff.

Are you saying that The Ham Station is going out of business?
