Hi Gary,

It was a number of years ago (pre-AO-40 launch), but ICM is where I got my Drake 2880 conversion crystal from.  I think I just called them up on the phone and gave them the specs.  It wasn't a less than a buck, but given that I'd just paid $75 for a brand-new Drake, pre-amp, and BBQ dish, another $10 or so wasn't all that bad.

Good luck,

Greg  KO6TH
