Is There A Radio Store In Utah?

Is there an Amateur Radio retail outlet in Utah?  No, not per se.  But there are a few places that sell some things and some another and perhaps if the winds are in your favor, you might find what you want at another.  I hear someone on the 2 Meter repeaters a couple times a month asking this question and a string of ham's come back suggesting one store or the other, so I decided to compile the list of places that have been mentioned.  I've only visited a few of these myself, but I have listed any business that I have seen or have had suggested which seems to stock two-way radio related parts.

Precision Electronics
454 N 1100 W, Centerville, UT 84014
(801) 292-4474
Comments: Precision is an repair shop, not a retail outlet, but I have bought some components from them and they are an iCom dealer.
RA-Elco Inc
2780 S Main St, South Salt Lake, UT 84115

Comments: Primarily a second had components store.  LOTS of cable connectors and adapters (BNC to PL259 to F, etc) and racks of resistors and other components.  Antenna selection is limited, sometimes a stray yagi will show up and radios are seldom seen.
