Bought an internal tuner for an FT-450 because no one else had one at the time. No problems with them.

I've purchased a few items from them. Maybe not the cheapest prices,
but...they've had what I needed, when I needed the items. You can also
use the chat box on the website to ask questions, somebody will usually
answer right away.

if you look at the QST ads, there are four brick stores and hamcity on the internet.  I would consider it likely that "hamcity" is the buying combine to get better discounts from the importers, the affiliated stores stock and operate independently, and life goes on. lets the brick stores compete with the HROs and AECs.  these buying combines are pretty common in the retail world.

HamCity is the e-commerce site for Jun's Electronics in Culver City, CA.  Jun's has been around for many years.

Bought a few things from them years ago. Seemed reasonable and no issues with quality. At times their pricing is very good, although often you need to add in shipping.

KD0ERQ,

Think you're confusing Radio City in Minnesota with HamCity in CA.

Over the years I've purchased several radios from Ham City and it's always been a good experience. Compared to Universal, Giga Parts, and AES they have the lowest prices and every once in a while you can find refurbished items for even cheaper.  An example is the Kenwood TH-D72 I purchased from them today, the others want $450 while Ham City wanted $420. A huge savings no, but cheaper is cheaper.
