Re: Softrock IF RX
- Hi Larry,
Thanks for the idea for dealing with the SMT crystal for the softrock. Best (only) idea I've had so far. Is there any need to "ground the can" of a SMT crystal?
I used a smt xtal in my softrock. Built a small printed circuit board with two pads separated at middle with a small slot. Drilled a hole in each pad separated the distance between xtal lead holes on Softrock PCB. Solder leads in holes and solder xtal across small slot. A sharp xacto knife does a fine job making the small slot.
