Looking for something in particular? Here's where we'll list all the parts that are extra, special or extra special.

The minimum rate for International First Class postage is $13+. Since my website only calculates US Postage on parts orders, if you live OUTSIDE the US and want parts shipped to you, an adjustment for DX postage MUST accompany your order. This item is simply a $12 adjustment to the calculated US postage to get your order shipped by International First Class mail to any DX location. I am sorry to have to do this but I have taken a hit on DX postage for quite some time now but the recent elimination of the lowest rate for International First Class Mail has jacked up the cost of shipping DX orders drastically!

|Genuine James Millen FT-243 crystal sockets (more info)||$8.00|
|I have a limited supply of genuine James Millen ceramic FT-243 crystal sockets. Through a family connection, I have obtained almost the entire existing stock of original Millen parts. I have LOTS of other stuff but the main item of interest to QRPers is the FT-243 sockets. I am rationing them to the QRP community with a strict limit of 2 sockets per customer. |
These are NOT dusty and dirty old stock but BRAND NEW nice & clean sockets with SILVER plated beryllium copper contacts made like they used to be because they are genuine Millen made.
I wanted these sockets for a couple of QRPme projects but the results of my quest far exceeded my expectations! So I will offer some of my stash to fellow QRPers who cherish the real deal when it comes to parts like these.
I will turn off the spigot on these sockets when I reach the magic number that I want to leave on my shelf for future QRPme kits.... So get them while they are hot!
|7.015Mhz FT243 quart crystal blank (more info)||$12.00|
|This is a factory FRESH FT-243 quartz crystal blank, AT cut, lapped for 7.015Mhz. It is a .5\\\\\\\"x.6\\\\\\\" rectangular blank just waiting for a grinding session to bring it up to some special place in the 40m band. Surplus FT-243 crystal holders come with one of 3 styles of blanks inside: .5\\\\\\\" square, .5\\\\\\\"x.6\\\\\\\" rectangular and .5\\\\\\\" round. I believe that the rectangular blanks are the most common. This crystal blank is the PERFECT starting point when grinding a crystal by hand for the 40m band....|
I searched long and hard to find a manufacturer to supply me with these blanks and believe QRPme is the ONLY entity silly enough to actually spend money to stock a blank crystal suitable for re-crystaling FT-243 holders.
