Hahahah

I just called the hobby shop in plainfield, they didnt have any. But look around someone has to have it, not to mention there are 217643 radio shacks around you house, one of them has to have it.

Depends on how many hours you want to spend looking for it. Spend some extra time driving down here and you have the problem solved. and its doesnt cost you anything.

American Science and Surplus had it when I worked there a few years back. The closest one to you will probably be Geneva.

Or....
I saw it at Ace in Roselle a few weeks back. Come to think of it, I'm almost 100% positive that I've got a huge roll at home in Tinley - you're welcome to some of it if you're up for the drive tomorrow.
