Re: K8IQY PVXO and Other Crystal Measuring Info

The PVXO is a very useful circuit.  I built mine from scratch Manhattan style, so if you don't find a kit, don't worry.

All,

I've had several inquiries about the PVXO that I designed many moons
ago to measure crystal parameters, so that they could be used in
crystal filters. That project, along with the Crystal Drive Circuit,
are located on my web site. Here is the URL:

http://k8iqy.com/testequipment/pvxo/pvxopage.htm

The NJ QRP group at one time offered a PVXO kit, but those sold out a
long time ago. But, if you ask on QRP-L, someone might have a kit
they didn't build, or a completed kit they would sell. We never
kitted the Crystal Drive Circuit, as it took way longer than anyone
expected to sell the 100 PVXO kits. We decided not to another
"limited popularity" kit. :-)

The paper that I presented at Atlanticon is also available for
download at the above URL.

Have fun.......

72,

Jim, K8IQY

Remember what you used to tell your mom---- everyone else has one.

Let me see.....

I have an FT-817ND, K1, RockMite 40, Cub 40, and now piggy !!!!

What was your question ?????

Besides, I don't think your friends will believe you when you tall them
you built the FT-817, unless of you can convince them "Yaesu" is your
middle name ????

!! Quick fix might be running straight key 100% of the time, and put an AA0ZZ EZKeyer between the paddles and piggy.

Change keyer to straight key mode and viola now only xmitting on 7030.7. Go bk to using paddles and all OK. Turn rig off and reconnect ant, and turn on rig. Now am all over the band. Switch to straight key mode and all is Ok. So now go back to using keyer with paddles and all Ok. Try turning rig off and on. Agn I must go to straight key first and then to paddles. So something in the key line is causing this! Rats I hate to have to remove it again from the enclosure! 72 George/W2BPI
