Several crystals now available - see list below with pricing.
During WWII these quartz crystals were manufactured for use in military vehicle radios.
There are two series of these FT-241 crystals, those marked with "two digit" channel numbers,
and those with "three digit" channel numbers. These crystals are marked for frequencies
in the 20 - 40 mhz range, but the fundamental frequencies are much lower.
Some of the crystals fall in the 455 khz range, and were used by homebrew radio builders in
the 1950's to make crystal filters, especially for SSB receivers and transmitters (see 1950s ARRL handbooks).
Dimensions (WHD) 29 x 39 x 12 mm / 1.1 x 1.5 x 0.5 inch
Notes FT-241 crystals, black body, were used in the BC-604 with a working frequency 20-27.9 MHz, 80 "channels" numbered 0-79.
Their fundamental frequency is 370.370 - 516.666 kHz, to be multiplied by 54.
FT-241 crystals, brown body, were used in the BC-684 with a working frequency 27-38.9 MHz,
120 "channels" numbered 270-389.
Their fundamental frequency is 375.000 - 540.277 kHz, to be multiplied by 72.
These crystals have a very interesting fundamental frequency range to compose sharp I.F. filters around 450-475 kHz.
Example: Channel 68 = 496.3 kHz.

These can be used for experimenting and for use as a crystal lattice filter since several
are on the same frequecies. (These have the same pins as the popular FT243 crystals and use
the same socket but the body is slightly wider.)
These are available for $12.00 each plus shipping
