Re: Cricket & 3560

I also received the ESS crystals and tested them using a 10 VDC supply made from AA batteries. Power out on various frequencies into a DL1: 3535 450mW, 3550 550 mW, 3560 600mW, 3575 750mW, 3579 (with kit) 700mW, 3579 fm ESS 800mW.

These are the maximum for two crystals of each frequency.   Worst were the 3560 crystals received from ESS at 350 mW.

I will be using the 3575 and 3579 from ESS.  Hadn't noticed Q2 getting hot at 600mW but it surely does.
