Where can I get surplus commercial gear?
You can start with whatever I might happen to have in my shop that I don't know what to do with,
or you can shop around at one of the following sites:
C.W. Wolfe Communications, Inc.
I did business with Bud for years when I was reconditioning surplus commercial gear for use in the ham bands. Reasonable stuff at good prices, they are based in Montana. He used to have a web page, but apparently now you have to get in touch with him by telephone or e-mail. Here's the info:
1113 Central Ave.
Billings, Montana 59102
Barnett Electronics, Inc.
Bob's another guy I've done business with, he's out of Arkansas.
Specializing in Motorola gear, based in Arizona.
Urgent Commnications, formerly Mobile Radio Technology magazine
The above mentioned vendors and many others can be found in the classified ads section of MRT.

There's only a few links here, but each of these sites has lots of links to other interesting places.
Links to vendors of site and infrastructure equipment.
On the job I have occasion to need to buy all kinds of hardware pertaining to the construction of communications sites and the deployment of systems therein. Here are a couple of vendors that I probably couldn't work without:
Virtually everything I buy for commercial grade radio systems I buy from these folks.
Great support, before and after the sale!
Everything you could want for infrastructure, from 66 blocks to Hoffman cabinets,
wire and cable to test equipment, all under one roof.
Pacific Coast Parts
A local distributor of parts for Kenwood amateur and commercial two-way products.
A local manufacturer of crystal devices here in soCal. I've been doing business with Mel for more years than either of us would care to admit. He runs a solid business that stands behind every device it sells. I've never been disappointed, their after-sales support can't be beat.

George has recently moved his site to a new server, and right now the only page available at the new site is his six meter repeater directory.
The rest of the site is still under construction, so this link takes you directly to the list.
