I am looking for a soldering station for use by an average guy. My primary use will be small HAM radio work, and the occasional fix of consumer electronics. The first place I went to was the website of Radioshack to see what they have for sale. To my surprise, there were only two stations there and both got just about the worst reviews imaginable.

Not having lived in the USA for very long yet, I am a little bit lost. Where do I go to find a decent soldering iron if Radioshack does not sell it? Even harder: where do I go if I want it now?

Looking forward to replies!
