I don't have any 833A sockets or connectors, but if no one in our group has
any you might try several newsgroups that occasionally have some good stuff.
Try rec.radio.swap, rec.radio.amateur.homebrew,
rec.radio.amateur.misc and rec.radio.amateur.equipment. There is always
a ton of items being sold swapped and discussed in these groups. Good Luck
