Netty Electronics has sold many of the small parts to Fletcher Electronics in North Bay. I am now tinkering fixing old radios like FT301 but I have a very large collection of Crystals and I buy and sell crystals as a wee bit of a sideline activity. Prices are really really reasonable. CLICK HERE TO VISIT Fletcher Electronics web site… NETTY ELECTRONICS now sells RADIO CRYSTALS. my email is

LINK TO MY BIG LIST of Crystals click ** here** for the list—- not everything is on the computerized list (YET) –– so just send me an email (click here-)  for your frequencies that u need and I will look up in books.

NOT all my crystals are listed on the computerized list __YET___I have thousands of crystals listed in handwritten form that I have not typed in to a data base — so if you dont see it listed— please feel free to email me with your requirements. my email is — 73 earl VE3AB Elliot Lake, Ontario Canada

FT301 radio > Dec 19 2021 I have added some more notes to my FT301 PAGE(s) click here for this PAGE or two in development (plenty of service tips) . I have plenty of spare boards and knobs and chasis parts for the FT-301. I sell them here and there to people who are working on  these older radios.

Shown in the schematic above– the FT301 rf amplifer (RF UNIT). Mine has sockets for both of the dual gate mosfets. I have (in the past) tested my dual gate mosfets in the front end of the receiver. I did test up about a dozen or so SFE1612s and some others in late Nov 2021. I plan to test the remaining dual gate mosfets in the winter of 2022. I can sell you some good tested high amplification dg mosfets if you need a few for projects or for the FT301.

I buy crystals and I buy old gear containing crystals for parts. Examples: Heathkit ham equipment (the crystals are in high demand). Also Drake radios and crystals. Other crystals as well. Dont just chuck them out. Let me have a look see..I might give you  some money for them and help other radio enthusiasts who are fixing up older gear with sentimental value.
Lately..August 2021 — I have been working on my FT301 stuff. I have one good working radio and quite a few spare plug in circuit boards and some transistors ect and I am working on the bench and I will be selling some working plug in boards soon.

I have crystal sockets and lots of surplus FT243 rocks ($1.50) that you can hollow out the old crystal out and

replace with a smaller modern crystal. I also have vintage crystals and modern crystals too. Average price

$4 each and some as low as 50 cents each


NOTED: 1st December 2021




I buy crystals. Rocks for certain CB radios are in high demand and also Drake and Heathkit rocks. Some people are still fixing older stuff (you’d be surprised!)

Email me  — >> I specialize in small orders – shipping across Canada —- $2.20 for small items like crystals  (I have thousands of crystals)  my average price for xtals $4


I have begun the process of passing all my parts over to a ham in North Bay who is going to be selling parts and I will be helping him until he gets the business established. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME for details and help with your orders.

I AM keeping the resistors, >>>>>>>>>CRYSTALS (I am specializing in Crystals) <<<< and I have many of the junker radios that I pull parts off for people from time to time. Just send me an email of your requirments. is a good way to get ahold of me.

>RADIO/ELECTRONICS BONE-YARD  __ thoughtful recycling of old classic radios

My Boneyard of Junker radios is being re-organized BUT.. if you have specific needs for parts.. just email me and I can likely help. I have(used cbs and ham radio radios and I still have this stuff for now at least.. FT301 part, CB radio parts, Atlas radio parts, some Kenwood Hybrid stuff as well >>electronics ready to be parted out CLICK HERE<<<<


MY YOU TUBE CHANNEL is under my name: Earl Andrews >>CLICK HERE TO GO >link< – look up my various videos on testing semiconductors ect

NEW PAGE– TOROIDS – here is an  important Cross Reference for LARGER TOROID CORES>> CLICK HERE <<<

NOTE: I  have passed on hundreds of smaller cores and balun cores to Nelson Fletcher VA3NRF in North Bay (Fletcher   SHIPPING is the same deal with Nelson –> (STARTING at $2.15 shipping across CANADA) almost all the smaller toroids and balun cores I have for sale are old stock from kits and parts dot com (non-chinese imports) —> I (Netty Electronics) still have miles of enamel wire for winding coils, quite a few AIR WOUND COILS, small molded inductors — IF YOU need something like this just email me and I can try to help.

MY TEST PROCEDURES — I do quite a bit of testing of parts.. especially RF parts like 2 or 3 watt RF driver transistors in particular but others as well. TO SEE MOVIE CLIPS of me testing transistors and ICs go to my YOU TUBE CHANNEL under Earl Andrews – Other  clips are there as well including some on my lazy loop back yard antenna.

THIS WEB SITE is undergoing CONSTRUCTION…BIG TIME– noted 21 Aug 2021.


NELSON has a new web site: and he can handle your small parts needs for older radios and other electronics gear. He is located in North Bay, ON. Canada.

The chart to the right is from a reference book that I used when I worked for the government. These charts were very handy when we catalogued all this stuff. NATO Cataloguing. This is the only surviving page I have and it shows the Military specification part numbering format. I still have some mil spec resistors around here and other resistors. If you need any just ask. Some resistors Im just giving away FREE.. IN efforts to down size.
