      Hi Paul,
      no I don't get around 84450KHz the most i got was 79230 UNSTABLE so I guess there must be an error somewhere.
      I got this reading with 7 turns when i reached 6 turns the oscillator stopped.
      The total amount is 9 turns... As I don't have an impedance meter I am done. can't see what else casn be wrong
      Can your give me some more suggestions.
      Thanks for the help.

      For 15m operation only, I'd recommend tuning
      the tank with the 1000 pF capacitor across the
      selected crystal to about 3*28150 = 84450 kHz
      within about 500 kHz.

      I suppose you could also probe one of the 74AC74
      outputs and then you would be looking for about
      21100 kHz within about 125 kHz.

      62 MHz with the capacitor is too low. I'd guess
      you will have to take a turn or two off the inductor
      before you can tune it to 84.45 MHz by moving the
      turns about on the core.

      Hopefully after that, the frequency will be stable
      with the crystals that you have.
