Used (SONET) equipment sources/lists?

I'm switching one end of a PtP DS3 to a location which only has fiber to 
the carrier.  As a result, I'm really in need of a Fujitsu FlashWave 
4010 or equivalent which can take a sonet-framed OC3 from a carrier and 
break it out into individual DS3's.

So far, my normal sources of used equipment have come up dry - but most 
of them really only deal with data networking (cisco) stuff, so it's a 
bit out of their league.    A long time ago (you know, like 100 internet 
years ago), I used to post these type of needs to 
misc.forsale.computers.net-hardware with good results, but that doesn't 
look very useful anymore.

I'm hoping someone can point me towards a reseller which specializes in 
this type of stuff, or another source I've overlooked.

(and no, eBay isn't a valid answer for this question... I've been 
watching :)

Of course, if someone would like to tell me a easier/different (but 
still reasonably inexpensive) way to break apart a SONET OC3 such that a 
far end DS3 can be connected to something like a PA-A3-T3 or a  PA-T3 
that would work too.

Thanks,
