Hey Sandy, Peterson Radio is still alive and well.  I just ordered WARC band
xtals for my R4 from them.  Excellent quality, service, and priced like it
used to be 15 years ago.

Now there is a real oldtimer for ya.  A lot older than International,
Sentry, etc.  CW Crystals just quit advertising FT-243 crystals in ER about
a year ago.  I think they may have went out of business too.  While on the
subject, what happened to GW crystals, Universal Television Crystals, Texas
Crystals, Scientific Radio, Aireon Crystals, John Meck Crystals, CECOR
Crystals, C.T.&E. Crystals, to name a few I found in my "Ole Rock Pile".
Interesting.  There was an article with a partial listing of crystal makers
in ER about a year ago or so.  Big list.
