I don't and I know.  I moved to Hawaii nine years ago (I was K3MXO
before the move.) and know what was happening even then.  From the
comments on the various lists, I also know the situation has worsened.
 At the same time, the responses I get are how easy they are to find
and cheap they are at hamfests.  Sooo ... which hamfests?

None of them carry things like hacked BC-348Qs and other things I'll
put up in another post.  When I look for semiconductors and related
toys, I go to them.  Boatanchors, on the other claw, are a whole
different kettle of mustard seeds.
