    VHF Hi/Lo, UHF. Anyone have any ideas on where to get crystals? Thanks. P.S. Ebay is useless 4 this.

    Unfortunately, most crystal manufacturers are no longer in business and new crystals are now very expensive. You can purchase a new, programmable, scanner for what just a very few crystals are going to cost.

    You may be able to adapt some of the very inexpensive solid-state oscillators to replace the crystals.

    What are the frequencies that you are looking for ?

    I have a lot of crystals that will work in the pro53 , Slim chance they are what you want. But I will check my stash.

    In the day that was a nice scanner. It even came with a schematic. :)
