KX1 power modification

Stan AE7UT
I just traded my beloved little K1 for a KX1.
The KX1 has the KXB3080 and tuner.

I was going to try the power mod and wondered where you guys
get resistors on the internet.  I know.... dumb question but I'm
not an electronics guru like you guys.  I actually have the 33 ohm
resistor but I can't find the 4.7 ohm resistor in my one horse town.
The prices I'm coming up with shipping are in the $10-12 dollar range.

Thanks

I bought a couple of different "resistor kits" on Ebay years ago and I still use those
as my main source.  Buy more than you need definitely but in the end pay less
then buying each time.

Although, I am not sure if such kits have a 4.7 ohm resistor but I think it has the 33 ohm.  So,
use 7 33 ohm resistors in parallel :-).

I know there are a variety of resistances under 100 ohms.  There are probably different sets
available -- buy them all.  Of course, I have not looked on Ebay for the last five years at
least so I am not sure if they are still available.

Two 10 ohm resistors in parallel should do just fine, or similar
combinations.

I buy from Mouser (good for small quantities) or DigiKey.  I usually buy
more than one resistor because of the minimum shipping cost.  I keep a list
of things I'd like to have and order something about once a month.

I bought a resistor assortment from Joe Knows Electronics or Sparkfun or
Elenco through Amazon.com.  Look on amazon for "resistor assortment" or
"capacitor assortment"
