Selling Ham Radio Supplies / Services


Have you ever needed to buy a PL-259 connector or 3 feet of coax at the last minute to finish an antenna project?  While Albuquerque does not have major ham radio suppliers, it does have small businesses that offer limited radio supplies and/or services.  As a service to ham radio operators in the Albuquerque area the Amateur Radio Caravan Club offers a list of local businesses that offer ham radio supplies or services.  In the spirit of amateur radio, though, the Caravan Club wants it known that it receives no financial benefit from these businesses nor does it make any recommendations.  This list, in alphabetic order, is solely a public service to local hams.
