    Pretty sure they are talking about HO's in general - and if so - just order them from your sign supply store/shop. There really is no such thing as a "weird" HO lamp. Just straights and U's. Make sure you have your Limited Licensed Electrician (LLE) - you need one in TN to do any type of electric sign maintenance under 25,000 dollars and your CE if over 25,000. Careful.

    Nope not HO's in general but a 57.9" two pin T8 1" dia bulb. It seems only one company makes them and they are $55 per bulb and the customer needs 30+ of them lol.
