Where to buy in Atlanta area?
« on: July 28, 2012, 04:48:58 PM »
Is there anyplace in the Atlanta area to buy things like coax, adapters, etc besides HRO?  They aren't open late nor on sundays so getting there is difficult. 

I stopped by the radio shack in buford today and what a disappointment.  They were in another locationa few years ago and had a good selection but moved close to the mall in a much smaller store and it sucks.  No twin lead, ladder line, no coax other than rg6, sparse selection of EXPENSIVE adapters ($18 for a sma F to bnc).  Not the radio shack I remember.  The people there didn't even know what 450 ohm ladder line was.

I'd like to get some ladder line to make a portable slim jim antenna.
