Precision Radio closes its doors after drop in sales (Hawaii)
#1
It's hard to miss the green building on South King Street.
For decades, Precision Radio has been the go-to place for electronics, offering everything from meters to television tubes.

The company was founded by Dorris and Harris Tarumoto following the December 7th attack on Pearl Harbor. Harris ran a fishing supply store. In fact, he was out fishing when the Japanese attacked.

"By the time he got home, the MPs where there already," said Milton Hironaka, Harris' son-in-law. "They interned him because he was a ham radio operator."
