Thanks guys,

What I am really after is using HC49/U and little HC49/US crystals
in boatanchor rigs in the place of FT243... BUT I got several
answers from guys who are already doing this with great success
in a variety of transmitters, so I think I should do OK with
them.  The idea is to open up the FT243 case and solder
in the small crystal!

Again, many thanks to you both for your helpful comments!
