Crickets and some Operating tips

WA0ITP
 

GA Group

Lots of folks are having fun with the analogy mentioned below, me too.  So I decided to investigate it a bit.  I found a youtube video that shows a Cricket "chirping". 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFEY9RIRJA 
  The sound seem to be a little over 4k cycles, and interrupted at a rapid pace. I didn't hear any of the "whoop" that we normally associated with oscillator "chirp". Notice that the cricket turns around every 6 seconds.  Wonder why, should we rotate ours too?

3560 crystals are readily available at ESS http://www.expandedspectrumsystems.com/prod4.html
and also on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/80M-QRP-Ham-Radio-Crystals-HC49-S-4-pack-/282420358175?hash=item41c190ac1f:g:7JEAAOSw8vZXN-Ke   I installed machined pin sockets on mine so can change xtals at will.  I'll be trying 3560 soon.

I'm having great fun with my electroCricket, with over 20 Q's, 11 or so are Cricket to Cricket QSOs.  Along the way I've found that QSOs are indeed possible with a half watt on 80M, but one has to listen carefully for the frequency of the stations come back to you.  Originally my beta build Cricket, had a very low tone on a received station wanting to work me. Placing 10p across C15 (bottom of board) brought the offset up to 440 cycles, a distinct tone that is easily detected.  Another great benefit of the 440 offset is that nearly all the digi signals are above the Cricket and the 440 tone slides right in underneath them.  If the signal is too weak, nothing helps, but if its strong enough it's easily detectable.  

A 9 volt battery will last a surprising long time, and the Cricket will still make power down to less built the keyer adapter and use the EzKeyer III with the Cricket.  Sending slower seems to garner more contacts than sending fast.  IMHO the QRM and low power conspire to make the Cricket more difficult to hear. Slow sending seems to help overcome that.

OK, I've rattled on long enough. Hope you are enjoying your Cricket, as much as I'm enjoying mine..

The name of the new CW tx is interesting in view of the fact that the classic sound made by a cricket is a chirp! But this Nov. when 80M season returns I will be listening for you crickets on 3579 kHz and maybe 3560 if you can locate such a rock.

Re: Exact Bayou Jumper Crystal Frequency?

Jim Sheldon
 

There's one major problem with staying on 3579 - it's called PSK.  The PSK people are not listening to their frequency before transmitting (many don't recognize CW signals on their "Waterfall display) and they jump right on top of pretty much any non-PSK signal anywhere near there.  3560 is more like the QRP watering hole on 80 anyway and the 3560 crystals will probably come out near there, like maybe 3559+ so that would be much more practical if you actually want to use the Cricket to communicate, not just call unanswered CQ's until you accidentally get lucky.  Terry WA0ITP has been lucky as have several others but that ain't gonna last.  The more and more PSK signals that crop up on 80 and those using the "Warbler" style crystal controlled rigs (all use color burst crystals) will eventually cause problems and the "Cricketeers" will get discouraged and either put them on a back shelf to gather dust or sell them and create more frustrated Cricket owners.  It will be a never ending battle for sure.  Just my opinion, but I've already ordered some 3560 crystals for my Cricket (and for several local friends) when it gets here.

Bob,

I’m interested.  I bet you could put a  little bubble wrap around it and throw it in a regular envelope….
Let me know how much and would PayPal be the easiest?

I like that idea.  I may just go ahead and buy 10 crystals from eBay for myself. Anyone else who is willing to pay postage from me to them (I'll look up postage), I'll send one to them as well as one to my friend in Alabama who came up with the idea (ok with you, John?  Great idea).

I haven't started building mine yet, but I plan to put a couple of crystal holder pins where the crystal goes so I can easily change crystals as needed. Do you have a source for 3560 crystals?

I knew I should have put in a socket instead of soldering that crystal in!

A friend of mine has suggested that we Cricket'ers consider adding another frequency, to be specific 3560 kHz.  Crystals seem to be readily available and inexpensive.  Thoughts?

I just love how much fun is being had with a $30 radio.  I am mailing a money order tomorrow.  Funny... the balun kit from Amidon that I will use with the W3EDP I am building costs $3 more than the rig... but I have wanted a copy of the book that comes with it for a while.

Hello,

I realize there will be some variations - but what frequency are y'all showing
for the color-burst xtals in the Crickets - so I can listen for Crickets in my
shack.
