These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the ARRL's QST magazine. Here is a list of the QST articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Against all odds, Radio Shack is still in operation today. They still sell a fairly broad selection of discrete components for circuit designers and for repair and modifications. Radio Shack is and has been for a couple decades the only hometown source for parts where you can walk in off the street to get what you need, rather than order it online. Even items like a dual-gang stereo volume control potentiometer, a 2-layer, 6-position rotary switch, and a DPDT PCB-mountable relay can be had. There are nowhere near as many as there were a few years ago before all the turmoil began, but Radio Shack is still there in a pinch.

Lafayette Radio Electronics Advertisement, Evening Capital Newspaper, November 12, 1971 - RF CafeThis full-page Radio Shack advertisement appeared in the November 1953 edition of QST magazine, which was during the heyday of electronics DIY activity. I've written in the past of visiting the local Annapolis, Maryland, Radio Shack store with a bagful of vacuum tubes from our television set needing testing on their testing machine. There was also a Lafayette Radio Electronics store (see ad at left) with an even larger array of components nearby as well.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB.
