It's my understanding that Mr. Peterson, for failing health reason has, 
in the last year, shut down operations.

How recently have you purchased crystals from Peterson?

I, too, have bought crystals from AF4K/Brian and at $9.oo per and $4.oo 
shipping, $40.oo was enough to get me 3.870, 3.880, 3.890 and 7.290Mc 
crystals.  Brian and I don't see eye-to-eye on many issues.  Personal 
issues aside, I can -not- detract his ability to provide boat-anchor 
enthusiasts with hard-to-find, and sometime very rare 'unobtainium'.  I 
find his service completely acceptable.

Don Merz provides a similar service.

While I'm at it, and this observation is from someone who 'officially' 
has no input on how the list runs (other than the respected opinion of a 
member - Thanks to W5AMI for having the ability to listen *and* hear 
members requests) I would like to point out, and remind those who wish 
to partake of those list members who offer items for sale, that the 
negotiation for offered items should occur 'off-list'.  

A rather detracting habit from some list-members has been to request 
'one specific part' in a whole raft of pieces offered, and then not 
remove anything that isn't pertinent to what they want.  *MY* opinion 
is, the best option for all concerned is that if a piece offered is 
desired, then reply to the original poster off-list.  Not only does it 
reduce unnecessary and non-technical discussion from the list, it also 
keeps the on-going archive a lot cleaner.  A simple solution, as far as 
I'm concerned.

If anyone is still with me after that lengthy diatribe (*grinz*)  How 
many of us are planning on participating on the Special AM Event that is 
set to occur this weekend?  The event marks the 100th anniversary of Dr. 
Feseden's 'discovery' of Amplitude Modulation.  It is my understanding 
that several special event stations all over the county, and the world 
will be participating in this momentous occasion.
73, etc...
