Yes the Yaesu FT101 series work very well on AM.
Wait  until you GET the radio before you decide which crystals you 
Someone may have already added them.

You can order these in HC50 holders from JAN Crystals, ICM 
etc. but they will NOT be cheap!

It's easy to get the formula from the manual for these radios.
You should be able to download it and get the information off the 
web too.

Sources for crystals are listed here:

Since I would most likely use it on 10, I wuz wonderin' if any of you know where I might get the required crystals....AND what's the frequency of the crystal(s)? I have read the manual and there doesn't seem to be any information about crystal frequency in there, or maybe I don't have a complete manual.
