But we can't be the colorburst army unless we are on 3.579... :-)  Just like can't be (40M) spies unless on 7.121.

Bob,

I’m interested.  I bet you could put a  little bubble wrap around it and throw it in a regular envelope….
Let me know how much and would PayPal be the easiest?

I like that idea.  I may just go ahead and buy 10 crystals from eBay for myself. Anyone else who is willing to pay postage from me to them (I'll look up postage), I'll send one to them as well as one to my friend in Alabama who came up with the idea (ok with you, John?  Great idea).

I haven't started building mine yet, but I plan to put a couple of crystal holder pins where the crystal goes so I can easily change crystals as needed. Do you have a source for 3560 crystals?

I just love how much fun is being had with a $30 radio.  I am mailing a money order tomorrow.  Funny... the balun kit from Amidon that I will use with the W3EDP I am building costs $3 more than the rig... but I have wanted a copy of the book that comes with it for a while.

Well, I got a couple of those little Bunnell 6B "Baby" keys from Western
Union test sets in this morning. First thing I did was remove the PC
board built-in key and install the Bunnell on the Rev A BJ. Looks
decent and really works well. The + terminal's screw was actually long
enough that I used a couple of nuts, one above the main PC board and one
below to make the connection between the Bunnell and the "Key" terminal
screw hole after removing the standoff that had originally been the
fixed contact. The ground, of course is through the mounting bolt at
the rear of the Bunnell key (had to drill a hole for that one and scrape
silkscreen ink on the bottom to make good ground contact). The original
PC board key works pretty well, but the Bunnell 6B is MUCH smoother to
operate and a bit easier to send good CW with.

The second Bunnell 6B got mounted on a piece of Blue Corian (yup, same
material they make dishes out of) that I got from Knifemaker Supply. I'm
waiting on some small rubber feet that will be here Saturday to complete
it.

Hello,

I realize there will be some variations - but what frequency are y'all showing
for the color-burst xtals in the Crickets - so I can listen for Crickets in my
shack.
