What about a 50.125 MHZ Xystal hard wired to use set as a moniter as
a member previously suggested ??
I imagine converting to AM is out of Question..
Thank You Very Much... FRED... 73...
Hard wiring a crystal in is probably not worth the trouble. The receiver selectivity is roughly 10 to 15 KHz wide. Just set the receiver dial a hair above the 50 MHz mark and you're listening to the lower end of 50 MHz. You might be able to receive slightly more of 6 meters by adjusting the oscillator trimmer A10 (the only trimmer sticking out of the chassis (near the rear of the variable tuning capacitor). But, unless you get rid of the ratio detector or convert it to a diode detector, and add a BFO and/or product detector, it's all a waste of time. Plus for decent reception, a 3 to 5 element horizontal beam, either rotatable or at least from your location pointed towards the Northwest for good U.S. coverage, should be used. Most CW/SSB/AM stations are using horizontal polarization.
Better off getting a AM/SSB/CW receiver that covers 6 meters or a cheap HF receiver with an equally cheap 6 meter converter.
