Re: Obsolete Transistor Needed

I beg to differ..
   Its not an American thing, its a pain in the rear thing, I have bought 
from outside the US
and sold outside the US, longer transit times, more expense, and sometimes 
the really
annoying "Oh please dont put what I really paid for it on the customs form 
... write junk parts $1"
from a buyer.

 So I can completely understand why someone might not want to sell or buy 
outside the US.
