Re: FlyingPig rig/SAVXO

Next to impossible to do.  There are several crystals involved.  One controls the frequency and the other the selectivity.  You wouldn't be able to shift the filter crystal (it's the same as the frequency determining crystal) in sync with the SAVXO and it's doubtful you could make it go up in frequency or down far enough.  As you tuned the VXO, signals would rapidly disappear from the passband of the filter and you'd hear nothing or at best very weak signals that blow by the filter crystal.
