    I have some 100 "& a bit" xtals, which were all part of a sideband filter from a commercial ISB transmitter.
    They are in an octal tube package.

    Unfortunately, the one xtal that was "spot on" 100KHz has vanished.

    Years ago, I made up a solid state marker oscillator built scross the pins of an octal socket with that one in it-- the socket & osc has vanished, too!

    Needless to say, the aliens wanted it back.

    It's from an MFJ 100Kc calibrator. They didn't last very long on the market though.

    I guess he's phoning home. I wish they'd come get him.

    Well, I have my 120 kc oscillator oscillating. I used a grounded base 2n2222 configuration which provides both low source and low load impedance, which makes sure the rock oscillates in the series resonant mode. I don't have a clue what to do with this thing, but the crystal is now happy, and fulfilling its destiny, I suppose.

    Just after I got finished, I ran across this circuit. I do have another 100kc rock I can use to build this. And a bunch of lonely CMOS chips.

    The CD 4017 is 53 cents from Digikey. I have a few of these lying around, but I should order up a stash...these are really handy chips.

    By the way, I do have a vast collection of FT-243s, many of which are outside the ham bands...but can be re-ground. Let me know if you need one...or two....or twenty.
