Re: Hyper-Cricket at 12 volts?

W0EB just posted a coupla days ago that he found very little difference in output power from 9 to 12 increase. Maybe Jim will chime in here.
The designer, NM0S, in a private email to me when I asked abt 12 volts, said that R6 would need to be changed to 150k or 220k. I was thinking abt the convenience of using a 3 cell LiPo, and having loong battery life. Haven't done that yet.
Sure it could be redesigned for more power, VFO, more sensitivity, etc. But then it would be a whole new rig and not a Cricket anymore. Dave designed it as an inexpensive, minimalist, and fun entry level rig.
btw Ken, do you own a Cricket yet? They're great fun.
