    Looking for an 18.925 crystal for the PLL Board on a Sonar FS-2340

    Dan, This would be a good place to try. Ken has more than listed on his web page. A phone call is probably best as Ken does not e-mail. Good Luck. 73 David

    epay...radio costs

    Where did the "True" auctions go? Most everything I see now is listed with a "Buy it Now" price-or at the very least, a "Starting" price that is more than the item is worth. 73 David

    Anyone here REALLY know Texas Stars?

    They are Steve. I set it to 80 watts max and corrected/repaired a coax switch that I believe caused the issue initially. I haven't had much time to play radio lately. Wife and I have been pretty busy with my health and her mothers health. I tripped across those 2-2879's I pulled from the...
