Here is the latest list of reproduction parts,
assemblies, and other items that I am producing for
"boat anchor" equipment. Don't make much money off of
them, but making hard to find parts available to the
"boat anchor" community. The cost doesn't come from
the materials used but from the labor it takes to make
"The Tweaky": This is a replacement cover for FT-243
type crystals that changes them into a "rubber
crystal". By varying the "control" on the cover, the
fundamental frequency of the crystal can be varied
from a few hundred Hz up to 3 or 4 KHz depending on
the individual crystal while still maintaining the
frequency stability of the original device.
Until 1 January 2002: Each $16.95 post paid CONUS,
$18.95 US post paid Canada, $18.34 Texas residents

Very shortly I may have some FT-243 crystals with "The
Tweaky" already installed. If, and when I get these,

Nostalgia: Reprints of my FM conversion manual
entitled Converting Commercial FM Gear. This was
originally written in 1968, published in 73 Magazine
in 1969, and then printed as a separate book by 73
Publications in 1972. Really Dated material! But, a
number of people have asked for reprints and thus I
have had some made.

If anyone needs small, reproduction assemblies for
"boat anchor" equipment, please let me know. I may be
able to fabricate them.
Also, I have been doing "boat anchor" repairs. Please
E-Mail for information.
