Default who wants radio display lights

My source has raised the price to 11 per bulb, plus 2 per line item handling charge, plus 9 flat shipping. So, if I get a few extra we can split up the $9 shipping charge and the $2 handling charge. I'd like to get it in early next week.

Oddly enough I went to Radio Shack looking for an alternative source recently. Found two replacements.

Once is a wired bulb and the other looks like an LED, but is a bulb. One didn't have an expected hours on it, the one that did was 10,000 hours. At 30mph that bulb would last an expected 300,000 miles. Cost on two of the LED looking ones and one of the regular wired ones was under $3 for all three. I installed them and they look like any stock radio bulb once they are in the socket.

I bought three different types at RS, all for less than $2 each. Just gave them to Don in return for something else.
