HI Brian,
I don't know of anyone in Arkansas selling the Craig products.  I have
ordered Craig Labs products from Mouser and MCM electronics.  Even the old
Wise Wholesale here doesn't carry Craig Labs cleaners.  Sadly looks like the
internet is our best friend again!

BTW, I love lurking on this list.  Thanks Brian!  73 de w5jay/jay..

Hey Jay!

Good to see you on here for once in a blue moon.  I know you have been on
the list for a while, but don't see you post a lot.

Do you know if there is anyone in Arkansas that sells Deoxit anymore?
Especially some place near Conway.  I want the brush on stuff.  Anyway, I
can order it, but just curious...

So good to see everyone helping each other on here.  Kim, I'm sure you can
bank on the ideas of most everyone on this list.  This is one the _best_
reflectors for ham radio, however I might be a little biased...
