I suspect you really want 144.39, but whatever. I've been very
happy buying my crystals from

They know what holders and formulas fit what radios, and provide
better prices and service than the two big names.

Needs to be a transceiver, not just a transmitter, to be channel-friendly - 
but yes. I've been re-tuning Motorola MT500s, which can be had cheaply
on ebay, but the required crystal elements are harder and harder to find
(we've resorted to rebuilding them).
