Crystal is in feedback path of Pierce oscillator, between base and collector of al, with 2.5-mH RF choke in place of tuned collector circuit. Oscillator works from 400 kHz to 20 MHz, depending on crystal. Designed for fundamental crystals; third overtone types will oscillate but at fun-damental. Value of 01 is for 1 MHz and higher; increase to 330 pF for lower frequencies. An-tenna can be 20-inch wire; increasing length increases signal radiation. Can be used as signal source for receiver alignment (with either radiated or probe-coupled signal), as marker generator, or in combination with station receiver as code-practice oscillator.-D.
