      Crystals chirp too. Don't worry about it. The amount of chirp will be a function of the crystal. Does it have a socket for a FT-243 or a HC-6 crystal?

      The new people don't understand.

      A couple of weeks ago there was a CW contest. No chirps but lots of CLICKS! It was so bad that I could not copy because all I heard was clicks and no tone. It may have been computer generated.

      I am not impressed with the way contests are operated these days.

      Tnx Bob, I thought the chirpy was certainly to be expected with a VF-1 or
      similar, but not with a crystal.Am I wrong?

      This is old technology! Chirp is normal!

      All keyed oscillators chirp somewhat. If you don't want chirp buy a modern
      RICEBOX!

      I have a Hw-16 that I would like to pass on to a friend. The RX works fine
      and seems to be stable. The power out seems to be proper. But, the report
      from others is that it is a chirpy cw signal. If not too difficult, would
      like to repair this unit.

      Any ideas, Lou wa5bng Tulsa
