    I'm looking for a place that still makes for cb and ham radios.
    looking for the below frequencies.
    Would anyone know of a place to get these frequencies maybe 25 of each

    14.460 MHz gives 26.065 to 26.505 MHz (LOW
    -
    LOW band)
    14.910 MHz gives 26.515 to 26.955 MHz (LOW band)
    15.360 MHz gives 26.965 to 27.405 MHz (FCC band)
    15.810 MHz gives 27.415 to 27.855 MHz (HIGH band)
    16.260 MHz gives 27.865 to 28.305 MHz (HIGH +10M CW)
    16.455 MHz gives 28.060 to 28.500 MHz (10M Novice band)

    There was one I needed for a 2040, can’t remember where I inquired about it but they weren’t cheap to cut just one. And Tech is right, waiting time is long too. I’ll try to find who it was, maybe that’ll help.

    I needed some crystals for my SBE radio and found www.nettyelectronics.com .
    Earl sells new and used crystals at very cheap prices. he tests them before they ship so you know what you are buying. Very happy with the outcome

    Here is what im trying to do.
    Since CB has picked up in the past year or so, I would like to bring back the xtal oscillator boards to add extra channels to basically the Cobra and Uniden Am radios and other cb radios that share the same pc board and xtal layout. I have a company that makes pc boards and I have designed a 4 xtal oscillator board. Also a 6 xtal switch to switch in/out xtals for xtra channels also to mod the radio to a 10 meter rig.
    It all depends on locating the xtals for the uppers and lower channels.

    Any thoughts on doing this and do you think cb owners will be interested in modding their radios for extra channels. Right now no one makes a kit to do this, the Expo 100 kits are no longer made and I have searched to seek out any kits made to do this.

    I know Les C makes maybe something but not sure might be discontinued.

    All this will be for the cobra/uniden radios that the pll cant be modded and a xtal oscillator board to inject the signal frequency like the expo 100 kits.

    Just need some opinions positive or negative welcomed.

    I have worked on radios for over 40 years and work for the Government building ballistic missiles and payloads for satellites. And also was involved in their launch from Florida to Hawaii.
    Just to give you a little of my background in electronics.

    Thanks for your time.
