Re: Transystem problems

Hi Don,

Where are you listening on the 2M side?

If I understand your crystal, for AO-40 at 2401.353, you should be 
listening around 145.353

So, to use the 6M harmonic/xmit test, you should use 50.01 MHz (not 50.1) 
so that the 48th harmonic comes out at 50.01 x 48 = 2400.48 MHz.  Therefore 
you should listen around 144.480.

Keep in mind you could be off by as much as a couple hundred kHz, so move 
that VFO around!

73 and good luck!
