Larry has been down with Influenza all last week and this week. I think he is going to try to get back on the bench this weekend. He ( his wife a nurse) has turned off all devices...... ;-)

To those Cricket 30 purchasers awaiting the 10.106 crystals.

 

I finally received ship confirmation for the crystals. As soon as I receive them, I will package them in envelopes and send them out. Hopefully you will see them within next two weeks depending on crystals’ arrival and Holiday mail volumes.

 

We want to thank everyone for their patience while we endured this long backorder delay.

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
