Universal Radio closing November 30

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

So sad to see this but nothing lasts forever. Great folks there and they usually had the decent prices.

In the past 12 months I bought these items from them; Icom ID-51A+2, Yaesu FT-70DR, and two Sangean HDR radios, HRD-16 & HDR-14.

I will also miss the cat photos.

Universal Radio was my go to dealer for most of my radio needs. I did a lot of business with them over the years.

I HATE 2020. >: >: >: >: >: >: >:


During the middle ages they celebrated the end of the plague with wine and orgies. Does anyone know if there is anything planned when this one ends?
