The good news is, I now have my Bayou Jumper Spotting
function working as one would expect it to, with the
Front Panel on top of the circuit board. [note I
didn't say mounted]
The Bad News follows...
After removing the Power Supply Jack, Headphones
Jack, Key Jack from the Front Panel, and applying
plastic tape to the top of all the Hex Stand-offs, the
Front Panel is in place but electrically isolated from
the circuit board (no ground connection).
More Good News...
My tests indicate I am now tolerably close to the
crystal's frequency. At least close enough I would
button this thing up and call it done, IF, I can find ways to
isolate everything I mentioned above and leave the
Front Panel electrically floating !!
Once everything is put back together with the F.P.
isolated, I will want to double check the Regen Setup,
but for right now, it seems like the tuning is less
'touchy', and I am getting a pretty full span of
frequencies. I say that because I can spot both of
the supplied crystals (7030 & 7122).
It is getting late here so I think I will sleep on it
and see what I come up with tomorrow to isolate
everything, and of course retest everything tomorrow
to make certain what I think I have here...
