Ramsey Hobby Kits, a purveyor of inexpensive electronics kits for hobbyists, enjoyed by the Amateur / Ham radio community, have ceased operation.
“We end our heritage with a smile, not a frown, and say thank you, to all our customers and fellow hobbyists,” Ramsey’s announcement said.
The Victor, New York, company sold a wide array of hobby kits over the years, starting with its LED Blinky kit in the 1970s and eventually including simple ham radio transmitters and receivers, aircraft band receivers, and other devices. Ramsey kits were frequently available at hamfests.
The Ramsey RF Test Equipment Group is unaffected by this change.
