Back in the 50s and 60s the then owner would accommodate hams who called him 
on weekends for crystals, even on Sunday afternoons.  The strain runs deep.

+ 10 for that Jim.

I have met the owner several times and serviced his entire Collins 
Really nice folks and definitely will accommodate everyone if at all 
Highly recommended!

Hi Rob,

I have purchased some exotic crystals from them as recently as two weeks 
ago.  They bend over backward to provide what you’re looking for.  Case and 
point.  I need 36mc hc49 fundamental AT cut crystals.  They agreed to make 
them which is more that most will do for you.  Their common crystals cost 
about $25.00.  I’ve tested the Chinese market and they are dirt cheap but 
minimum orders are 1000 pcs and there is a terrible language barrier --- not 
sure what you get will be right.

Kindest regards Jim K9AXN

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 board?

tnx 73
