RadioShack, we will miss you.



 RadioShack was the only local retailer that could give us the means to listen in on police, fire, rescue, aviation, and other government service agencies.  Local newspapers are a thing of the past; if you want to know what is going on in your locale, you need the ability to tune in.

It is still fun to listen to shortwave.  Thanks RadioShack!

 RadioShack was a place to find information that was not readily available elsewhere.


This relic scanner still works; it was a high-tech wonder during its time.  Not many of the crystals inside the box are for agencies in my area.

It is a bit sad to witness the failure of RadioShack, but markets and technology move on.
