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
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?
