Re: Hum on new build

Ken,

Yes indeed the audio amplifier IC chip connections are certainly possible cause of problems.  Are you sure none of the pins got "rolled" plugging into the socket?  Nothing wrong with using a socket, have used them often myself.  Try unplugging and reseating the chip in the socket.

Both of my "Crickets" are silent except for signals, no hum using battery power.  A wall wart would likely be different thing.  The 30M does pick up AM BC in the evening.
