Flying pig rig saga!
George H. Gates
So far I have done the following:
Made sure all parts in correct place.
Checked toroids. One had one xtra turn. Removed xtra turn.
Removed binocular toroids and re wound them.
Re heated all solder joints.
Made sure all transistors were correct ones and installed correctly.
I tried changing xtal. Problem still there.
If I listen to the osc without transmitting I do not hear any birdies.
I have a 1/2 toroid left over. Parts list says it is L7. I see no place for it on the board or see it on the schematic?
I have also tried running the rig on battery power.
About ready to put it in the pig sty (junk box)
Tnx to everyone for your suggestions.

Excellent work so far, but I suspect it's time to post your note on the Flying Pig reflector. Most PigRig builders hang out there and the designer monitors the list also.
The extra 1/2" core is probably for the choke on the power supply leads.

So it's a half *INCH* core and not half of a core!
Y'all have to understand you don't get any bragging rights at all for
confusing me because it's just too easy.
