I will remind my wife of that. Actually, this is one of those times when neither one of us had much to say about it.  She was a nurse at the hospital and on the first day she decided she didn't like me.  But, she was game for a free dinner at a nice restaurant and a movie, besides her girlfriends would have lined up to take her place if it were available, so she couldn't say no.  Her mother and I hit it off right away and her mother drove off the other few guys that were beating a path to their door.  Her brother was a doctor, sister a nurse and they liked me.  And I had to marry her to get her parents.  They were salt of the earth kind of folks, well known and respected in the community, and adopted me on the first date.  Her dad was the dad I had lost due to death at age 15 and we hunted and fished together.  She didn't have a chance to say no!  It's been good for 44 years.  Besides, everything is in her name.  Who would want me?

FT-241A Crystal Holders

Jim Sheldon
 

Evidently my last post that all the FT-241A crystal holders are sold did
not go out from Yahoo for some reason. I see it in the "conversations"
on the 4S Group but never received it in the normal email broadcast from
them. Evidently some of the group members didn's receive the "ALL GONE"
message as I'm still getting people asking to order them but I do not
have any more, sorry.

FT-241A Crystal Holders

The entire lot has been sold --- Thanks!!!

FS: FT-241A Crystal Holders

Jim Sheldon
 

Now that the Bayou Jumper Kit sales have reopened, some of you may need
holders in which to solder the small metal can crystals that come with
the kit. Adapters are provided with the kit and these work perfectly
well for the job. Some may decide that they want the Bayou Jumper to
look more "retro" when in operation but don't have the FT-243 or FT-241
crystals either on the right frequencies or that can be modified as
holders for the smaller metal can types.

Earlier I offered some FT-241A type crystals that are on oddball
frequencies, but work great as holders for just about any of the small
metal can type crystals available on various 40 meter frequencies in the
CW range other than the standard QRP frequencies. These are held
together with 2 easily removable screws, the top comes off and you can
remove the old internal parts. It's then easy to solder the small can
crystals to the pins and put the cover back on. Now they look like old
style crystals and it's easy to use just about any small stick-on label
with the proper frequency either hand written or typed on the sticker.

I still have a fair number of these available. Prices are $2.50 each in
single lots, or better yet 2.00 each in quantities of 2 or more.
Postage for up to 4 units is $2.62. If you buy more than 4, postage
goes to $6.80 as I use a small flat rate box for shipping. I can get 10
of them in a single small flat rate box.

I started out with 80 crystals and currently have half of them left.
Anyone interested in purchasing one or more please contact me off list
first just in case someone decides to grab what's left at $1.00 each
plus actual postage for the lot.

If someone wants the entire lot, first "I'll take 'em all" email (by
date/time to be fair) gets right of first refusal. I suspect postage
for the lot would be a little less than $14 for the 40 crystals & the
metal case they came in.

Off list please with inquiries to @W0EB
