Ooooh, yes! Please confirm this. Last I ordered from them was back in the
early 80's. I got a bunch of military surplus radio pieces from them for my
collection. Been thinking of tracking the company down recently.

I remember clearly they often had drum memory units, PSU's and misc.
computer bits. I was never into old computers until the past several years.
I still have an old mid-80's catalog that I uncovered while moving earlier
this year.

Regards, Chris
