It turns out that Amateur Electronic Supply AES suddenly announced that they would be ceasing all business operations at the end of this month. After nearly 60 years of operations, the owners of AES have decided to pull the plug. There will be no going out of business sale, only a transfer of goods. The remaining AES locations will close permanently. This may be of temporary benefit to HRO as it also expands its hold on the physical store amateur radio market.
