This is something that needs to be organized with one or more local
clubs. The reason is shipping costs and breakage in shipping if they are
not packed well. I've never seen breakage in full boxes packed by
Fair-Rite at the factory, but that's not true of those packed by others.
Also, the COST of shipping is very high as a percentage of the cost of
the part for small quantities, but relatively small for full boxes
shipped by ground.
An appendix in k9yc.com/RFI-Ham.pdf includes a worksheet to help decide
how many pieces of various sizes of parts to order. Once you know how
many of each part you are going to order, you simply go to the Fair-Rite
website, select the tab for getting quotations from a distributor, and
get them from at least three for full box quantities. My best quotation
this time around was from Dexter Magnetics near Chicago, Kreiger (in VA)
was next, and Mouser was high (by a lot).
