Source for 784 MHz crystals?...

Does anyone know of a source for 784 MHz crystals?
I\'d like to try to \'accurize\' the timer in the HP-45 calculator.

** You need a broken HP-55 to scavenge one from.

I doubt any go that high.

Yes, that\'s possible. I have a HP-55 and it works, so I don\'t want to
cannibalize it. I\'m sure there has to be some company that can custom
manufacture crystals to specs. I did try Bomar, but have not received a
reply.

Many crystal companies that make them for indivuduals have gone out of
business. For the ones that are still in business you can expect to pay
from $ 50 to $ 100 for a one of a kind. Thre is a company in England
that makes crystals to order, but you are still looking at over $ 50
each.

Years ago there were several companies in the US that would make about
any crystal you wanted. Now most radios use one master crystal and from
there use electronics to cover all the frequencies, there is not much
demad for the crystals. Unlike years ago where each radio frequency
required a seperate crystal.

You probably found this link already:

https://davidreaton.com/hp-calculators/hp-45/

I got to that link from the opposite direction, in that I used to modify
video game systems and we\'d use custom oscillators in place of crystals in
order to mess with the region or the video output timing. So the timing
circuit that Mr. Reaton uses in place of a 784 kHz crystal works on the
same valid principle.
