12. Probably 20 years. They used to have good coax cables, and phono cables,
but they there are better places to get that stuff these days, if you need them at all.

I just hate them for asking my address and putting it in their database. Fuck that. All I want is a simple antenna and they want my goddamn address. :wtf:
