Post by Hair Bear »

Hi, I'm looking for a shop or supplier in the Rawtenstall or Accrington areas of Lancashire.
Anny ideas within a couple of hours drive please?
Thanks.

Thanks, I'll take a look.
Unfortunately I'm not happy buying accessories on line as you can't ever be sure that you're going to get what you ordered. Just recently I ordered a small boot lip mount and 30' of 213 coax. Received a gutter mount. 'Boot lip mount not in stock, this will do the same thing for what you want', and 40' of RG8 'same kind of thing just a different number'. Not helpful!
I like to be hands on so I can see first hand what I'm getting and if any substitute can be suited to the application I have in mind.
Does anyone know if the shop on Lymm services is still there?

There was a CB supplier at the car boot sale (shipping container storage site) in Haslingden (just off grane road), not sure if he still does it?

Does anyone still use a radio in Rawtenstall? It's always been dead for me.
