I just started assembling a 30-40 kit after a very successful build of a
40-40. I built the VFO section last night, powered it up and found it running
from 2.130 up to about 2.165. That's the lowest I could get it. I assume it
should bottom out at 2.100 so I guess I gotta add a turn or two to the VFO
coil or some more C to the circuit. Before I start messing with it I'd just
like to confirm I'm on the right track as far as VFO freq is concerned. My
logic is that it runs 2.1MHz, mixing with the 8.000 MHz IF to get 10.100 and
up (actually, I guess it subtracts 2.1 from 10.1 to get 8.0 for receive).
Right? I just thought I'd get the VFO running correctly before proceeding
with the rest of it since it would be easier to mess with it now.
