A friend of mine has suggested that we Cricket'ers consider adding another frequency, to be specific 3560 kHz.  Crystals seem to be readily available and inexpensive.  Thoughts?

Here is the link to those 3.560 crystals, 10 for $10.49 on Ebay:

I was on the iPad last night, and I can't figure out how to do cut and pasting on that confounded Apple machine.

On the engineer's alway's need to improve things: yeah, but the older engineers have learned to temper that a bit - build one first and then improve it!!  Or, with a $25 kit, just buy a build a new one.  Otherwise (as I can attest to), you wind up with a lot of half finished projects.  Another manifestation of the 'time to cut bait and do some fishing!!!"

Remember this is a SIMPLE little kit.  Not ideal but just something simple to get folks talking and 'doing their thing' and having fun.  

​Sigh!  But engineers always need to *improve* things!😊
