To be crystal clear (pun intended) the crystal filter
is in the front
end of the receiver and NOT at some IF or "shifted
frequency". A VXO
won't help much. It sounds like a lot of fun. But it's
not my cup of tea
being so restricted, either. Unless..I have some
*other* radios I can
use when the Pig Rig frequency is in use. Like the
radios that surround
me when I'm typing emails (evil grin).
