Re: 80 meter Cricket instructions

Yes, you posted the latest doc for the original Cricket.

The links on the page have been repaired. I may have missed others. The hack happened just after I just finished chemo so brain wasn’t firing on all cylinders. I left the retired kits until last. No excuse, just explanation.

I’m not so sure that link is working?

I will see if we can find that document for you.

Hello Don

This should be the link for that kit.

The info is way down below the current kits in the retired kit area.

Hope it helps.

I gave one of my un-built 80 meter Original Cricket transceivers kits to another ham. He reported the instructions on the 4SQRP website are for the newer version; the one that uses a keying transistor. Apparently the kit I gave him directly keys the 9 Volts. I've not looked at it myself. I'm just reporting what I was told. So, does anyone have the schematic and instructions for the original 80 meter Cricket that they could send me? I have built a Cricket, but it's been several years since I've looked at it.
