3PK HRS Crystals, HUH?

How does Futaba expect me to switch channels on my 3PK HRS radio if they do not sell TX crystals seperately and do not sell crystal sets with "short" RX cystals for the HRS reciever? I have absolutely no way of switching channels! I'm stuck using the original channel that came with the radio.

What am I supposed to do? This is ridiculous! I'm either missing something here or Futaba did not think this out well at all.

They only sell reciever crystals, not TX crystals.

Through Tower you can either buy an individual Rx crystal or a Tx/Rx set. You can not by Tx crystals only.

This isn't such a bad deal. Usually Tx crystals don't fail, but Rx crystals do. In the bad old days, we ALWAYS had to buy the set. You ended up with a few dups on your Tx crystals if you ever broke an Rx.
