Re: No Rx on 30 meter with softrock 40/30
- Thank you Bob
I did some dubbelchecking and measured if there was a short between the crystal and ground but it is free of the board about 1 millimeter
So no luck there.
Hopefully Tony can provide me with an other crystal because this frequency apparently is hard to find I've noticed
