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 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.
