Well,

  I knew Johnny was not going to call the 80 meter net, but I called CQ for awhile anyway. Got numerous reverse beacon network hits, from CO to the east coast. Had a QSO with W0PWE. Heard a weak 4s? around 0239Z. Listened a bit more, nothing so called it quits.

Re: cricket 30 C15, C16, R8

WA0ITP
 

Since the sidetone is a relaxation oscillator, change C16 or R8 to change the sidetone.  Note that it has nothing to do with the frequency offset, and it won't change when changing the frequency to which the rig is tuned. Change xtals to prove that.

C15 controls the T/R offset and determines the tone at which you'll be able to work a station at a tone you like. Try for 500-800 HZ, I changed C15 on my first 80A and achieved ~600 hz offset which it played vy well

GL and enjoy your Cricket.  You might check out becoming a Cricketeer

Thanks guys, I will try and look up the mods later.

Re: cricket 30

Dog whistle Cricket.
I found the sidetones mod info.
There first changed C-15 to a 30pf which did well, but later changed it to a variable (anything that tunes 15 to 60 will do). They tore one out of a cheap transistor radio, and mounted it in the battery location. They then soldered two 9v battery clips together, snapped one on the Cricket board clop and the other one onto a battery laying off the board (observe polarity when soldering wires).

Well, outside of eating Kibbles and dog biscuits, it seems like I remember a modification published on the Cricket 80 that changed the value of a cap (C-7?).
Another ham installed a variable cap over by the key and ran wires to the cap's previous location pads.
You might look for arrivals on it and compare circuitry to your Cricket 30.

My experience is that the antenna tuning can affect the sidetone for some reason.
