Looking for a few crystals to bring my Regency Monotoradio back to life. I have some to trade away as well. Is there a buy/trade/swap source somewhere?

Thnx

I've got about 10-15 that I will sell for far less then the ones on ebay, but how likely are they to be the ones you need? 10.7 IF.

You'd think GIMF but not so much. Maybe lots of folks on vacation? Plenty of expired links too as expected...

I was thinking there might be someone on here that's "the crystal guy"

All MCS-1

Have to sell/trade:
155.595
154.905
155.010
155.340
154.665
159.210
46.380
158.850


Need:
158.77500
155.92500
158.73000

I used to have good luck with Jan Crystals although it's been a while; they might be worth a check...

I’m guessing that these frequencies are for Saratoga County NY. If so don’t bother with 158.730. They don’t use this frequency any more there sheriff communication is done on the 800 MHz frequencies the 911 channel is still active

Scott:
Monitor Crystal Service in Watseka, IL is still in business and their number is 815-432-5296 and crystals are $10.00 each.
Cliff is the owner of MCS and I'm on the phone with him now. He's a real nice guy. I would NOT purchase anything used on eBay as they tend to go off frequency when they get real old. Cliff can cut ANY scanner crystal you want.
MCS is the ONLY COMAPNY really making CRYSTALS so call him now ASAP.
Regards,

Bob

A little off topic, but I remember my 1st CB radio. Viking Johnson Whiteface. used crystals for the five channel slots. My friend Jumped one of the white square resistors to boost it up to I think 10 watts.
