Title: Crystals
Post by: KJ4PKO on September 07, 2010, 06:50:19 PM
Where can I buy some crystals for 20m,40m, and 80m?
Have been looking and can't find them anywhere but in kits.
Thanks 73,
Samuel KJ4PKO

You will find them often on Ebay for sale under Crystals, you can also use Google and find various other sources for them as well, you can also advertise your looking by postings wants on the various swap sites in the classified sections. Depending on the type of TX you have you can usually get away with 40 and 80 meter crystals to cover 20 (by mulitiplication)  and above and usually no need to really buy the higher fundamentals.  In fact if your going to just use 40 and 80 meters you may get away with just finding crystals for 80 meters.  Good luck, sounds like a fun project,  73 Jim N0XE

Check out AF4K's site, plenty of crystal for sale and he might have what you need.  Good luck,  73 Jim N0XE

Exactly, or do a search for JAN crystals.
Having said that, I have had better results in years past with International Crystal.
