Austin Amateur Radio Supply Closes
Texas amateur radio equipment distributor Austin Amateur Radio Supply has closed its doors.
Started by Johnny Paul, WA5BGO, SK, over 35 years ago, Austin Amateur Radio Supply had been a regular advertiser in the major ham publications. After Paul’s death in late 2013, Austin Amateur Radio continued operation for well over a year.
I bought my first HT from Austin Amateur Radio Supply 25 years ago. It’s always sad to see another small retailer close their doors.
Thank you to the Paul family for 35 years of service to our community. You are missed already.
I will miss you. I grew up with you and Madison Electronics in Houston, now both Sk. A real loss to the Hams in TX. 73’s & Happy Trails Scotty KE5TO (wa5uhr)
