My contact with them was about 6 or 8 months ago so it is fairly recent.
As for the crystals they do not manufacture the FT-243 but will supply the
HC-6 with pins to fit the 243 applications. They will make anything you
want, for a price. In the case of the Collins 100 Kc crystal they gear up
and make so many then sell from stock, based on previous sales. The HC-6
will stand quite a bit of current, I forget exactly how much, but more than
the small crystals.
In cases like this it is best to call to inquire. I am not sure how many of
what they make but the owner is related to ham radio and tries to help as
much as he can.
1. How recent is the ICM information folks are giving? Did someone
order a few days ago, or is this information that's 5 years old?
These days source information has a shelf life.
2. What kinds of crystals are we talking about? I mean, if I want a
REAL rock, like a FT243 or bigger slab for say, 3880, will they supply
that? Or are we only talking about skinny wafers that go on a PC
