Re: RE: S band for 6 bucks

Well, I guess I figured that the 3 weeks delay without status on the 
ordering of crystals was long enough.  :-)
I really want to get others on-board with this and keep the momentum going.
I'm pretty new to this type of conversion and my twisted brain's figured 
that, if more people stay involved and communicate, then the better chance I 
have of success.
So, please post your experience: good, bad, or otherwise!

Yes, kudos to Woody!
